Re: Knighton Park Road

Yet another near collision outside my house... JUST much hooting of horns and shouts of abuse! Collision, or near collision? Surely there have been two or three in the last fortnight, but they were collisions. Not near collisions. Please only report on (including photos of) collisions. Near collisi...

Re: Knighton Park Road

I already posted my solution. For those who think there is no problem... it is outside my house where the fisticuffs generally happen along with the regular collisions. On average there is a collision once a fortnight. The screaming of abuse and fisticuffs are about as frequent. I have never seen a...

Re: Knighton Park Road

I would like to know who has priority on the high street then? If the flats above and the retail units below helped pay for it, how dare anyone have a greater right to use it? Scandalous :wink:

Also, I have lived in KPR for quite a few years, and there really isn’t a problem.

Re: Park Court Rubbish - Knighton Park Rd

There is a public health issue at stake and so the Environmental Health Department is who you should refer to. We are! Write direct to the puppet mayor. I doubt you will receive a response but he is supposed to be responsible. Domestic waste is a local authority matter and they are obliged BY LAW t...

Park Court Rubbish - Knighton Park Rd

I was almost certain that I have seen references to this issue before on the Forum, but couldn't find anything through search, so feel free to point me in the right direction @admin The rubbish build up outside this new block of flats is ridiculous - I seem to remember hearing that the landlord had ...

Re: Any news on...

A lot of demolition work went on but it came to a halt. I believe there is an intention to purchase Sivyer's yard and incorporate that. If so then a revised planning application should be expected BUT no news so far. If Sivyer's yard is closed it will be a day for widespread celebration and I am su...

Re: School catchment areas

We are edging closer to the time when we need to apply for primary schools for our kids. We live on the south side of Sydenham high street and seems like we’d struggle to get into any local school based on the most recent catchment area data from 2017 (with the possible exception of Adamsrill).

Still wondering what is happening with the old Coop site, which would seem to me to be a good opportunity despite the lack of parking, which is probably a deal-breaker Ahem, Girton Road Car Park could hardly be closer. Doesn't do Lidl's any harm. Plus there it's a lot more convenient for the non-ca...

On the rodent issue, I have seen a few over by the petrol station - I think they enjoy the water around the car wash and the drains flowing down to the Pool river. I have never seen one anywhere near the store however, but I wouldn't be hugely surprised if they are around and about

I guess the gas holders site is a good option given the hammering Sainsburys is getting.

Re: Noise in Lower Syd last night

Its just weekend revels, people unwinding in the summer after a weeks hard work. Leave them be, it's a diverse multicultural city and different cultures and the entertainment they bring should be embraced. I'd have gone along and joined in, especially if the drink was cheap. Can't beat a drink and ...

Re: Calabash of Culture

I have just left a comment on the planning form. This really is a terrible idea.
So many reasons why these types of places shouldn't be opened in this day and age - obesity, chicken welfare etc., but the main thing is that there are already about 6 on the high st!

Re: St Philip Neri Meeting - Thursday 19 July 7pm

Good update, but what did they say about the actual building and the aesthetics? I thought the main point was whether they felt they contravened the original approved plans and that they were going to, in the first instance, get the cladding changed?

Re: Obstruction of Knighton Park Road

I have to say I rarely have to park too far away from my house, but then again I am at work during the day, so I guess as my car is already there, I have a space so to speak - if I am there during the day and go out, I am often looking for a different space no doubt.
