Re: Cycling on Sydenham's pavements

i did ponder about whether to remove the photo. I didn't want the discussion to become centred around 1 individual. However, whatever her age or community standing, she is breaking the law. If i had photos of reckless yoof riding on pavements, I would equally have posted those. and intend to. And wh...

Re: Antic pubs have withdrawn from the Greyhound

The issues Gilly raises regarding cars are quite crucial. However near the station/bus stop you are, and however many cycle racks you include on a development, inevitably a large proportion of residents will be car owners. It is simply unrealistic to expect people to do family shopping, buying of fu...

Re: Antic pubs have withdrawn from the Greyhound

i know gillyjp was not best pleased with the proposed development as it went for Planning. So it is refreshing to hear some positive words about the buildings. However, i would still guess a significant number of residents would own a car and that the lack of parking for the development will lead to...

Re: Cycling on Sydenham's pavements

Maybe, in a couple of years, when the woman cannot cycle any more, she will be knocked down on the pavement by a cyclist and have to undergo hip replacement surgery.

that would be irony.

Re: Cycling on Sydenham's pavements

Here's a photo of a law-breaker, taken at 7.30 this morning on the Kirkdale pavement close to Panmure Road http://farm9.staticflickr.com/8288/7494144032_149c8e33cb.jpg There was no need for this woman to be cycling on the pavement. Indeed, if she feels so unsafe cycling on the road, maybe her bicycl...

Re: sydenham hill historical walk No.3

OK, no takers.

I move out of Sydenham in 2 weeks, so will be unable to arrange this.

Re: Antic pubs have withdrawn from the Greyhound

I am in favour of transparency over how the decision-making process was achieved. I would like full disclosure, but doubt this would ever happen. I would also be interested in why Millford Homes sold the site on (shortly after the Greyhound failed to burn down), and what the relationship between Mil...

Re: Cycling on Sydenham's pavements

Cyclists on pavements is a particular bug-bear of mine. It's not the fact they are there, but also their selfish/inconsiderate/aggressive behaviour, which is detrimental to the pedestrians well-being (which is the whole point of having pavements!!) putting things into some sort of context, I am a 42...

Re: Antic pubs have withdrawn from the Greyhound

And the thing is,..this was planned long in advance by Purelake. Foundation design is an exact science. You can't just chuck an extension on a building without knowing the loads that are going to be applied to the foundations. If i was an unscrupulous developer and wanted to maximise a former Public...
