Re: Planning permission?

I don't believe planning permission is required if you are not in a conservation area and there is no article 4 direction removing permitted development. I would imagine that extends to the windows too. As long as they are the same size/ appearance. An entirely new window opening would require plann...

Re: Barratt Homes / gasholders site: make your comments NOW!

I think he's arguing against car free developments. The issue here is that the area has quite poor transport links (for an inner London borough). The stations are all a fair walk away and the lines don't transport east and west very effectively. Bus capacity is restricted by the railway line and low...

Re: Bell Green Cycle Crossing

Heroic would be disabling the cameras, ideally in a subtle way. Spray paint, cutting cables.

Taking out pedestrian crossing points outside a school, leaving the traffic light blocking the pavement, just seems a bit 'look at me' tbh.

Re: Broken window theory

Had something similar near me. It was Anglian building a conservatory and using the road and pavement to dump the soil they'd dug out. It was collected by a grabber lorry. Reckon similar here, especially because of the warning cones. Illegal, but hard to get the council to react quickly enough to ca...

Livesey Hall War Memorial added to 'at risk' register

Today, Historic England added the war memorial outside the Livesey Hall to their 'Heritage at risk' list. https://historicengland.org.uk/advice/heritage-at-risk/search-register/list-entry/405981 The plaques have been stolen, replaced with plastic. The plastic replacements have faded (by sun or clean...

Re: Broken window theory

Hi b_s - I've invested in a £2.99 picker-upper from the Sydenham Road Bargain Shop. Doesn't look too robust but it helped me do our street today. Thanks for inspiring me. Maybe the Sydenham Assembly should give a proper one plus Lewisham bags to folks who will do their street once a week. So anothe...

Re: Broken window theory

The blue bags are poundland issue. :lol:

£2 for a roll of 18!

They are very good at collecting them, although it helps if it's somewhere where they can stop the wagon safely. I usually leave them by a bin or in one of the places where they pile the Lewisham blue bags, Or I just add to the pile.

Re: Broken window theory

Nice to see this message. I've been reporting flytipping and assorted stuff for years. Now using Love Clean Streets app, which seems to be the council's latest favourite. Flytips seem to be cleared quickly. Other things are a bit slower. Managed to get some yellow lines repainted too. First lot took...

Another thought. Police may not come out for noise, but they will for drugs, knives, aggressive behaviour etc...

So make sure you press the right buttons when calling. ;)

Re: Planning Application - Gas Holder site

To clarify, there will only be 8 parking spaces, for blue badge holders. The process so far has involved talk of a car free development. The application suggests there is nowhere nearby to park, as all the roads have double yellow lines and the car parks have time limits. They don't mention that tho...

Planning Application - Gas Holder site

The planning application for the (former) Gas Holder site is now live and open for comments etc... Three buildings proposed, "between 5 and 15 storeys". It says something about phased development, which presumably means they won't build the next one until they've sold what's been built, so...

Re: Tue 29 March - Recycling?

Sorry to hear that.

We've had two recycling collections in 4 days. Once on Saturday because they missed last week and then again today, on our usual collection day.

Seems ridiculous to collect from one road twice in a week and nothing for weeks elsewhere.

Re: Review of polling places and districts - have your say

Strange, as my kids school (Haseltine) is always closed to education on polling day. A shame The Bridge has been closed, as that would have made a great place for polling day. Probably still would if the door was opened. I note the Bowling Club hasn't been abandoned yet either. There is also The Liv...

Re: Weston Homes to build 254 new homes on Dylon Factory site

Is this the same planning application for the land previously described as The Footzie Social Club? I'm not clear which bit of the Dylon site hasn't already been built on.
