Re: Bell Green Retail & Employment Plan Consultation

There was an extremely well attended Sydenham Society meeting with an additional session on this issue last night.

Re: Say 'No' to further retail at Bell Green

I am not all that bothered by the gasometers remaining, but i object to the additional pollution (air, noise and litter) another supermarket will bring.

Fantastic news, what Sydenham is desperately short of is a supermarket! Oh wait...... :roll: Jeez, the bottom of the high street is already struggling, the traffic queues up Perry Rise are growing by the day waiting to get onto the "employment park" (how naive do they think we are?
