Re: URGENT: Livesey in danger!!

Here are prime examples of how with regular certainty some "hard facts" quoted in one post evolve entirely into some other "hard fact" from Julia at a later date. It is not clear that there ever was a four year gap in the running of a club in the Hall as described by Julia. In th...

Re: URGENT: Livesey in danger!!

That is exactly what you have just done to me. Have you talked to Colleen yet, to check your facts? Not at all clear what you want me to clarify with Colleen. However let's examine some historic matters. Have you revealed to Colleen that you and SydSoc conspired to have Keir's planning application ...

Re: URGENT: Livesey in danger!!

Julia, fairly typical of you. Name calling is usually your last resort. Do you remember the time you posted a false allegation, fabricated and posted by you, (as yet not withdrawn) that all my neighbours must fear me ? You have propensity to go low, Julia and with a significant measure of consistenc...

Re: URGENT: Livesey in danger!!

Speak to the licensee. Why - what does the licensee know about your plans for a campaign? Or about what plans the Hall's potential new landlord has? Please tell us you are not building a very public campaign around a single conversation you have had with the licensee about difficulties they have ma...

Re: URGENT: Livesey in danger!!

Buyers turned up, saying that the club would be evicted next year. No word from their landlord, who are refusing to take calls, or to respond to emails. If we don't show we want it to continue as a community hall, we will lose it. Reasonable people would want to see substantive evidence. If the new...

Re: URGENT: Livesey in danger!!

Alternatively go inside - anytime. View the delightful interior of the building. Become a member of the club that operates in the building. It is well run and welcoming. Not sure it needs to be saved - from anyone or anything. In fact, if the council had not unlawfully rejected the development plans...

Re: Bell Green Neighbourhood Forum proposals...

As it was made clear to you in the meeting, this is not, and never has been, to set up a Bellingham NF. It was always about a forum involving sections of three wards, as encouraged by the Mayor. Jacq Paschoud specifically stressed that point at the meeting. You are quite entitled to organise a Bell...

Re: Bell Green Neighbourhood Forum proposals...

Bellingham ward areas apparently have no amenity societies or online community forums, and councillors haven't told their voters about the BGNF. We particularly need volunteers to leaflet these areas. JGD i know how strongly you feel about ensuring Bellingham representation. Can you join the team, ...

The property is being sold by Kier, a self-described infrastructure services and construction company to a company described by JRW a...

Re: Bell Green Neighbourhood Forum proposals...

If you go to SE26.life, you will see the draft Constitution, showing the absolutely democratic rules laid down by statute. A Neighbourhood Forum has to follow the rules, or its Neighbourhood Plan won't be subject to the final democratic vote. Of course, you won't get to experience this, as you live...

Re: Bell Green Neighbourhood Forum proposals...

For Bellingham, read JGD. You claim to speak for Bellingham, but I know a large number of Bell Green area Bellingham residents who see the benefits of a cross-ward Forum. Interesting, Julia. It doesn't really matter who knows more (or fewer) people from Bellingham. What will matter is how many iden...

Re: Bell Green Neighbourhood Forum proposals...

You appear to misunderstand the Neighbourhood Group concept. It is my understanding that a Neighbourhood Group can set itself up and define the area for which it wants to act. That may - or may not - coincide with a Ward boundary. In any event Ward boundary changes can be addressed when they are imp...

You have also misrepresented my presentation at the Bellingham Assembly; I was talking about a cross-ward forum, and this model has been approved in principle by the Mayor. Cllrs Jacq Paschoud and Alan Hall can both vouch for these points. No misrepresentation - it simply reports your attendance at...
