Re: The Censor in RTW Speaks Again

Not that I know of. With further responses you may not expect and that only some people may be aware of. It is not a forum war. This thread is generated by the overly intrusive actions of an individual with an aggressive and predatory behaviour pattern who normally selects his targets by his assess...

Re: The Censor in RTW Speaks Again

Does anyone know if Chris is just a one off? Does anyone know of other areas where someone like him is active? As far as I can see, in most places people with explicitly local interests go along with Facebook. Avoiding being judgemental about what "someone like him" means, the questions amounts to w...

Re: Consultation on Proposal to Close Silverdale/Bishopsthorpe Road to traffic

More effort should be spent making Sydenham Road more walker/bike friendly. Queensthorpe Road is already blocked off and has not benefited the residents of Sydenham other than the homeowners who already live within the conservation area and left a big square opposite the post office that is practic...

Re: Consultation on Proposal to Close Silverdale/Bishopsthorpe Road to traffic

For me, what's not to like is that not enough thought seems to have gone into the impact of where traffic will inevitably go instead. I'm concerned about an increase in traffic and air pollution in and around Mayow Road. I'm very much in favour of a reduction in car use, I don't own a car and think...

Re: Outrageous Acorn Estate Agents

Maybe Acorn just got the address wrong? Estate agents use subcontractors for placing and collecting sign boards so mistakes or inattentiveness can happen. As I understand it, new legal rules came in a few years ago, whereby a "For Sale" board can be placed only if commissioned for that property and...

Outrageous Acorn Estate Agents

Just hearing from a neighbour that someone, presumably paid for by Acorn Estate agents, went into their front garden and posted a board saying "LET BY ACORN". Totally untrue, as they admitted when some other neighbours rang to complain. Didn't Lee Newham organise some action a few years back encoura...

Re: Consultation on Proposal to Close Silverdale/Bishopsthorpe Road to traffic

There are a series of proposals on road closures in Lewisham to support walking and cycling in the wake of Covid-19. One of the proposals is to close SIlverdale and Bishopsthorpe Road to traffic.

Re: Croydon Canal route: Brockley to New Cross

Hi, I’m new to this forum but have enjoyed reading all the posts over the years about the Croydon Canal. I manage a nature reserve around where lock 20 may have been (Eddystone Bridge Crofton Park) and today we think we unearthed part of the structure where a bridge may have been. Also an extensive...

Re: Sockpuppets on t'other forum

It will be interesting to see whether Chris's decision means that there will now be more traffic on this forum. Or has the iron now entered too deep into everybody's soul for there to be any reconciliation between the Chrisites and the Stuartites? Don't know, but the mush of moral equivalence is qu...

Re: Bell Green Proposals

I went along, and while the vision for a mix of housing and retail, at decent densities - for which read high enough to help solve housing shortage, but not overbearing - was good, it felt to me, in the words of Tredownman, something of a displacement activity. I think the project was too architect ...
