Re: Bell Green Cycle Crossing

Thank you for clarifying the route involved. The proposal makes good sense. If the s106 monies for that proposal is held by LB Lewisham (amongst circa £2.4m of unexpended funds ingathered from the retail park development), do we know if LBL will proceed with the work as the condition that funding is...

Re: Bell Green Cycle Crossing

Could this be a reporting error (second of sections highlighted in bold) from the South London Press item that describes the route being developed from Sydenham station - perhaps that should be Lower Sydenham station?

Re: Livesey Hall War Memorial added to 'at risk' register

Even more saddening - the front three panels on the memorial were reported stolen in October 2011. Simply put - over 12 years ago. This is how the memorial looked before the theft. http://lewishamwarmemorials.wdfiles.com/local--files/memorial:sydenham-south-suburban-gas-works-ww1-and-ww2-war-m/SBGGW...

London City Airport Expansion: Fund-raiser for Planning Inquiry

London City Airport's planning application for expansion of its operations was rejected by LB Newham. Newham rejected it on the grounds of noise and the reduction of the long-established weekend respite by extending flying hours to include all day Saturdays. Expanded flight proposals would bring an ...

Re: Planning Application - Gas Holder site

Interesting - whatever modification Lewisham made to the entry, it triggered an automatic update email to me.

Whilst the email set the status as "Decided" the entry in the portal was set to "Withdrawn by Applicant".

Ha - Cruella will be even more intrigued by this revelation.

Long term reconnaissance - and looking very organised in their little sailor suits too.

Supported by the little guy in the red trousers - is he one of the much-vaunted leftie lawyers?

Re: Kirkdale Roundabout

Rumour is Ms Braverman is desperate for intel about where the trowel carrying terrorists hid their little boats before sailing out to the island roundabout illegally.

More power to their collective elbows.

Delightful outcome.

Re: London City Airport Expansion Plan - Refused

Within 24 hours of LB Newham refusing planning permission to expand its operations, London City Airport announces it will appeal the planning decision that stops them stealing away peaceful enjoyment of Saturdays from thousands of overflown Londoners.

Re: Monopole telecoms mast application at Bell Green

Done. I wish to object to this application. The selected location is an already narrow footpath which is a choke point for pedestrians, pram users and wheelchair users. The installation will unnecessarily further obstruct this section of pavement. It may be anticipated that the installer deems this ...

Re: Car Stolen

This "top prioritisation" adds weight to the argument to see more efficient deployment of resources as being critical in preventing repetition of this form of crime. Five or six incidents means five or six more opportunities in which CCTV images could be secured and then using rapid scanni...
