Re: What *are* they doing to Dartmouth Road?

I agree- I have no idea why the pavements need to be so wide - it is the road that clearly needed widening and yet they seem to have done the reverse! Perhaps it is so that more cars can park on the pavement and class it as private parking?! I dread to think of the chaos that this will cause an alre...

I agree- I was awake from 6am this morning and counted at least 6 planes in the space of 10 minutes!

Neighbourhood nuisance

Several neighbours and their children are becoming more and more of a nuisance- at first it was just the children running up and down the street all day long yelling and screaming and kicking balls around - I didn't mind this that much, as I know that children have to play somewhere, however it did ...

Re: Windmill pub becoming a sainsburys?

If Sainsburys is not opening at The Greyhound anymore, what is going to open in the retail unit instead? If it stays vacant, along with a half built pub (or fully re-buit, but vacant pub) then this really won't be good :( Also previous posts mentioned the hope that Sainsburys moving in may help to c...

Re: Fly Tipping - Cobbs Court/Greyhound

Rubbish also seems to be a big problem on Spring Hill and some days it looks pretty grim (especially when the local foxes have been at the Council rubbish bags awaiting collection!). Back in the day, I remember the campaigns about not dropping litter - you don't seem to see much of these anymore, wh...

Re: Mary Portas: Pop up Shops

Another convenience store... sigh :( I don't understand how they all make enough money to survive or why, when there is at least another 4 in the vicinity (and the possibility of Sainsburys Local opening soon) that anyone would think it is a good business idea to open another one! It is a shame that...

Re: Contesting a parking ticket - any experience?

The parking on Peak Hill is also a mystery to me - I was told a couple of years ago by a long-term resident, that you couldn't park on the right hand side at certain points, but that parking on the left hand side with 2 wheels on the pavement (even though this pavement is narrower) was allowed all a...

Re: KFC Poster - Spring Hill

It is behind Zanzibar nightclub, it looks a bit like a converted garage -someone has been renovating it for around a year. When walking past, I overheard a group of school children discussing crush'ems and popcorn chicken, so whether intentional or not it is a providing a bit of advertising for KFC!...

Re: The pub on the kirkdale roundabout

Annie, I have to agree- I was really looking forward to a pub and mini supermarket and I also think that it is now looking unlikely. I thought that The Greyhound project would be a real boost to our area, however after reading through all of the recent postings re the housing and the pub, it seems t...

Slightly off topic, but does anyone know if Sainsburys are still planning to occupy the retail space or have they had second thoughts too?!

Flytipping

Apart from the Love Lewisham website, does Lewisham Council actively do anything else about flytipping eg cameras, notices etc? The bottom of Spring Hill (next to the grassy mound) seems to have become a tipping hotspot over the last few months (as I am sure have other areas, this particular one is ...

Milkman

Is there a local milk man operating in the Sydenham area? If so please can you let me know the details as I would much prefer to have milk delivered instead of lining Sainsburys' pockets! :D
