Re: St Philip Neri school: Archdiocese appeals planning enforcement order

That is the opinion expressed in the Archdiocese’s statement. I'm being ultra cautious about quoting, because of previous events. As Lewisham also only got the final version a couple of hours ago, I expect it will be uploaded on the planning database in a few days time. I hope everyone reads them, a...

Re: St Philip Neri school: Archdiocese appeals planning enforcement order

Well, the Archdiocese's statement of case has just arrived, along with Lewisham's. I will have to check whether I am legally allowed to post any quotes, but apparently they think very little of the school's surroundings, and that it lacks the ingredients for a streetscape worthy of note. That's us t...

Re: Home Park

This came up about the Bellingham Play Park, and apparently the council has removed some swings etc for social distancing. Home Park is Bellingham ward, so you might ask Cllr Alan Hall to check for you. Alanhall4labour@hotmail.com

Re: St Philip Neri school: Archdiocese appeals planning enforcement order

I think you'll find the planning inquiry will rule on the facts. You make strong allegations without actually reading the evidence, and didn't take up my offer to take you through it. I have documentary evidence, so can back up everything I have said. The developers have no evidence to back any of t...

Re: St Philip Neri school: Archdiocese appeals planning enforcement order

Hi Prince, Thanks so much for your advice; I contacted Planning Aid for London, and they are currently organising legal advice for the case. The Planning Inspectorate has instructed Lewisham to provide me with documents, and I await their response with interest. Legal advice will make a huge differe...

Re: St Philip Neri school: Archdiocese appeals planning enforcement order

I couldn't agree with you more, JGD, compromise is vital to producing a swift resolution for everybody's sake. The trouble is the Archdiocese has refused to even discuss having discussions, let alone agree to start them. They haven't been willing to consider anything other than doing exactly as they...

Re: St Philip Neri school: Archdiocese appeals planning enforcement order

That sounds brilliant, thanks Prince. I will try and find them and give it a go. Currently, Lewisham are still refusing to hand over appeal documents, and the planning inspectorate at has ordered them to comply. This is why I'm not going to trust Lewisham to deal with it themselves.

Re: St Philip Neri school: Archdiocese appeals planning enforcement order

Update: The Sydenham Society have just confirmed that they don’t feel able to pay for a barrister, so are relying on Lewisham Council to represent neighbours at the forthcoming planning inquiry. Frankly, given that Lewisham has spectacularly failed to keep the development under control, I don’t feel...

Re: a 60 foot (5G?) mast is coming to Newlands Park

To check for other mast sites, search the planning database for monopole SE26 or SE6 etc. They all pop up straight away. .

Fairlawn Park planning appeal group

Hi all, The OLSPN school redevelopment has taken a difficult path, and the Archdiocese has applied for a full planning inquiry, which will take some time to complete. If you object to the Archdiocese's plan to make minimal changes to the current design, then join the Fairlawn Park Planning Appeal Gr...

Re: 18m telecom pole outside of tennis club gate!!

Don't panic! All is not lost. On 17th August, Bromley Council refused permission for another mast, this time in Newlands Park. In fact, that refusal is probably why they are coming your way. Have a look at the thread, and look at Bromley’s planning website to see what people said to convince them. h...

Re: St Philip Neri school: Archdiocese appeals planning enforcement order

Thanks JGD, that is really useful. However, the quote you made seems to come from the applicant - it is their proposal. The council officers opinion is that "Officer Assessment – Materials Some ‘Retained’ Elements Acceptable • Heights judged acceptable – principle of 3 storey building approved • UKP...

The Archdiocese of Southwark’s appeal against Lewisham's planning enforcement order is formally launched, after a long delay caused by covid shutdown. The developer requested a full planning inquiry, lasting 4 days. The date is not yet scheduled, but there is a strict deadline of the 1st September 2...

Re: Planning alert - St Philip Neri school travel plan, last chance to comment

I am going to leave it at, this document seems sloppy and confusing, and I think it worth neighbours having a look. If you think it is clear, then that's great. If people think it needs clarification, then just send in a comment to ask for it. Ask for more information about the status of the existin...
