Re: CBRE say Bromley is best borough for wellbeing

The aspirant posh who can't afford Hall Lane or the Thorpes and so have to move further out to avoid us Lewisham riff-raff, you mean? Not sure anyone would rather Hall Lane or the Thorpes when they could have Keston, Langley and Farnborough Parks and not have the feeling they’re going to be stabbed...

The overspill from Lewisham borough you’re beginning to see in Bromley you mean?

BP Kirkdale

Does anyone know what’s happened to the BP garage on Kirkdale? The lights on the signage are turned off, the shop is empty as if the bailiffs have been in and there’s an empty skip outside.

While it’s blantantly a franchise I’m surprised BP haven’t stepped in.

Big Yellow Self-storage or a similar less well known self storage company is my guess.

Re: Sydenham Post Office to close for refurbishment

If WHSmith didn’t have such a dowdy approach to retail they might have been a company with the foresight and ability to make a profit in that space. Downham, Bromley Rd Post Office has a Subway sandwich shop and an off licence! It is not operated by WH Smith. I know, that’s my point. They were supp...

Oasis is already there, and has been for a long while now, it’s along the wall and before you get to the empty space in the corner. Also, is...

Re: Bell Green Urban Renewal Plan

Unless and until something is done to sort out the road layout Bell Green (formerly Sydenham Green) will remain a polluted nightmare of a location. The traffic issues are solvable without restricting access. Unfortunately you have local narrow minded politicians in the way. IS there really that muc...

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...

Re: Payless, Sydenham

I wonder if this is an issue for reporting to the Environmental Health Department as it concerns food. Also if food is rotting outside the premises it will attract rats. I was going to suggest similar when looking at this thread before. The Food Standards Agency gave it a hygiene rating of 2, back ...

Re: New Aldi approved in Bell Green

Just to give another example: The Nando’s - Great addition to the area in place of a large empty shop. Great addition in terms of a different dining experience (not too similar to anything else in Sydenham) catering for different people - I.e: family dining, teenagers or younger people which Sydenh...

May the new ‘stationery shop’ containing the new Post Office be WHSmith? If not, who is it?
