Re: Sydenham.info

Is it possible to post recurring events? Crystal Palace Parkruns (almost) every Saturday at 9, GoodGym Bromley group runs from the Bridge House Tavern, Tuesdays at 6.45 pm?

Re: SilverDale Old Sorting Office

I had a couple of meetings with the owner, a couple of years ago, with a view to leasing the building from him. It all fell apart due to his odd ideas about business. He used to have Oola Boola Antiques on Kirkdale, before he sold and it was developed as Tesco Express. He just seems to be sitting o...

"This mixed-use scheme, currently being referred to as ‘New Cross Gate’, will transform this overlooked site into a new urban quarter at the very heart of Whitechapel"
I think that's just marketing, like referring to Sydenham as Penge borders

I guess what the officers want is always the most modest because they're the only ones who look at the budget for any project

Re: Pedder SE London flyer

Indeed, but it's so much more socially acceptable to talk about property prices than politics

Meanwhile another agent is urging us to sign up to sell

Re: Bakerloo Line Extension

Lifelike - I am impressed. As I wrote, "rail planning is something I tend to leave to others, because it is so technical". I'm not sure if it was always thus, but these days we are becoming ever more aware of the problem of every Tom, Dick or Henrietta thinking they are an expert, but I risk digress...

Re: Bakerloo Line Extension

That doesn't sound easy to me, trying to thread turning trains round into the rail schedule without blocking up either the down or the up line at inappropriate moments. There must surely be a better option planned. In fact, it would make more sense, I'd have thought, to run a line down to New Becke...

Re: Bakerloo Line Extension

You wont lose the Hayes line. The tube will run on the same tracks (making the extension easier than other options), and be more frequent. I am unsure where it would be diverted? The Hayes line is already at full capacity so adding some Bakerloo trains means losing some of the current services. The...

Outdated it may be. When the newer technology fails (which it will in time) it remains a backup.
Maybe pigeon lofts would be a better alternative

Dacres Road / Silverdale Urban Renewal Plan

I've been wondering recently whether our local civic societies have any plans here

This is a derelict relic of a largely outdated technology. Can we plan to get rid of it, before it becomes an icon?

Re: Current state of the property market in Sydenham

Not sure if helpful to anyone here but seeing this I thought was quite timely so thought would chuck it on here. Make of the article what you will but SE26 is reportedly one of the area’s “bucking the trend” and is still “hot” in comparison to the vast majority of London (although not mentioned in ...

Re: Current state of the property market in Sydenham

I put my house on the market. The estate agent was so careless they damaged my prospects of a sale. They are an estate agent well known in Sydenham which claims a level of success I cannot substantiate. My four bedroom above average sized Victorian semi was described, by them, as a three bedroom te...

Re: Current state of the property market in Sydenham

For reasons which had absolutely nothing to do with thinking of selling, I just looked at a chart from Streetcheck.co.uk for a post code in SE26
