Re: LEWISHAM COUNCIL PLANNING ENFORCEMENT DESPAIR

Further update. Stroma withdrew their application in Dec 2018 as they agreed that building control had been breached.
This reverted back to Lewisham Council.
Stroma also reported it to HSE.
So indeed the problem now sits with Lewisham Council.

I have now tweeted Lewisham Council and Ellie Reeves...

Re: LEWISHAM COUNCIL PLANNING ENFORCEMENT DESPAIR

Update My error - Stroma haven’t acquired the freehold but it looks like they may have acquired the building control responsibility (a merger / acquisition or similar)I’m not entirely sure but they found no. 7 on their books and are going to email me or call me back. Spoke to a chap called John who ...

Re: LEWISHAM COUNCIL PLANNING ENFORCEMENT DESPAIR

A slight aside, but I had dealings with Stroma about 8 years ago (it was related to commercial energy management), so I’m guessing the Greendoor lot have perhaps sold the business to Stroma and perhaps Stroma didn’t do their due diligence, ahead of that acquisition. As tenant you are stuck, whilst t...

Re: Station muggers

Thanks admin. I saw an awful post and chose not to respond. I will now... The photos of the suspected perpetrators are excellent. I hope that their family and friends encourage them to confess before they are caught, because they clearly will be identified. They will have a fighting chance of workin...

Re: Crash on Sydenham Road

This happened to my sister once on the M20 motorway. It was a good few years ago, and an old car, but it it did just ignite whilst she was driving - Suddenly she couldn’t see anything for the smoke, and pulled over. Thankfully a gentleman pulled over too and told her to quickly get out. In her case,...

Re: Cox's Walk footbridge

Well possibly because gov officials cannot always be trusted, particularly in recent years when under so much financial pressure. I’ve signed, as it helps to ensure the detail is flushed out; and I guess in doing so, I’ve trusted those that have bothered to put the petition together, to have reasona...

Re: Sydenham Tyres

I think it quite possible that the council actually sanction the storage of the tyres within an invisible boundary. Quite often permission is granted to businesses in this way, to allow them to continue to trade. You should be able to check this with the council and this night perhaps set a clearer ...

Re: Threats on the forum

Whilst agree unacceptable behaviour, the poster should be allowed to correct this. I actually thought you were actually quite rude to Carty as well though, to be fair. Could be an opportunity for apologies all round. I had to to remove a comment I made about men who visit prostitutes last year - we ...

Re: The Drowning Place - Beckenham Place Park

Agree Troll comment very unjustified/unfair. I was finding that debate somewhat interesting up until that point, albeit slightly off topic as it goes to demonstrate how complex these affairs can be. Back on topic and my opinion (of which I do not invite or need comment - it’s already clearly underst...

Hmm. Weird visuals (particularly the opening laundrette clip), monotone voiceover and music of impending doom. I’ve lived happily here for years, but maybe I’ll move. I found that depressing.

Re: Knighton Park Road

That’s great as people tend to walk to Yoga. The plot at Gfloor isn’t good for planned residential anyway, as it is right on the corner; this is really the best outcome that could be expected for the space created. Good news, and I would recommend supporting them if maintaining this quiet use is imp...

Homecroft / Newlands Park Junction New Flats

This is actually quite a prominent site (right on the corner of this busy junction and visible from the high Street) but there is no detail in respect of what the final build will look like.
