An update on the planning appeal at 5 Churchley Road for anyone interested, the Govt Planning Inspector has (yet again) dismissed an appeal from the owners against Lewisham's refusal of planning for 2 properties.

Re: Urgent warning: plant thieves in the area

Yes, i couldn't quite grasp what that bit of blurb meant either...looks a bit odd. Re: Ramsons (wild garlic), in a conversation i've had in the past with some of the Great North Wood project team i understand that they do survey all the ancient woodland indicator species in the woods, but the bigger...

Re: Ancient Trees

Yes, you can register and then send details of any tree that you think fits the criteria (explained quite thoroughly on the website) and they will send someone to verify this. If the tree is considered either 'notable', 'veteran' or 'ancient' it will be added to the tree map. We have just submitted ...

Re: Urgent warning: plant thieves in the area

Crikey! :shock: Did you get the plants back? It seems the London Natural History Society did have an event on Sat to 'record' wildlflowers in the area so maybe it's worth raising concerns with the organisation as i bet they'd be mortified at the idea of plant thieves in their midst... http://www.lnh...

Re: Costcutter on Kirkdale

Re: food waste collection

Well, in theory you CAN compost food waste (including meat, bones etc) on a domestic scale with one of these babies http://www.hotbincomposting.com/....but it might not be something everyone would want to do due to size, price and the attention and commitment it needs to keep it running smoothly!

Re: Is Sir Steve Bullock a crook

It's my understanding that Steve Bullock won't be standing for another term and is stepping down as Mayor in the very near future, so would it be more pertinent to start considering who might be selected as Lewisham Labour's new Mayoral candidate, rather than campaigning for Sir Steve's resignation ...

Re: Longton Avenue/ Wells Park Development threat

Having had a quick look at the development in question (and it's for EIGHT 3 bed maisonettes, so rather more than would house four families) it does look like a lot of attention has been paid to the special circumstances of the site, in particular taking the SINC status of the garden into account, a...
