Re: Sydenham Hill Woods Sunday cafe

just to be absolutely clear : it is on the Dulwich Estate side, close to the car park and scouts hut. - So you actually have to walk out of the woods and turn to your right and its 100 yards away, just inside Gunsite allotments. They hope to put better signage up on the woods gates and entrances , s...

Sydenham Hill Woods Sunday cafe

As a regular dogwalker in Sydenham Hill Woods, I was amazed to find a quirky little cafe in adjacent Gunsite allotments. At the moment it only operates on Sundays from 9am - 2pm I don't have a map of the woods that i can use, but it is on the Dulwich Estate side, close to the car park and scouts hut...

Re: Antic pubs have withdrawn from the Greyhound

The soil will have undergone investigation already so that they could calculate a new foundation depth.
These foundations will already be in place.

There is no guesswork about seeing if the new foundations are suitable. They can just crack-on re-building

Re: Houses built in Crystal palace park?

i thought the debate was good, until The Duke started making unsubstantiated claims about the development proposal and about DTH.

Totally undermined her argument

Re: Kirkdale Village Pub Quiz...Bricklayers Arms

No need to stress. I have a few neighbours coming along (6 ATM), but we can always split/merge teams to incorporate individuals.
Just get there a few minutes early so we can arrange teams. :D

Re: Houses built in Crystal palace park?

But, if i may. There are a handful of people contributing to this thread. It's kind of comforting that people with opposed veiws can reach some sort of agreement. However, there are many hundreds, and probably thousands of local residents, who hold different opinions, and there is no concesus betwee...

Re: Houses built in Crystal palace park?

If the powers that be want wide spread support for their Masterplan then it is time they listened to the community. The GLA currently has funding available for CPP - it's about £8m. Now why not modify the MP? Ditch the housing element and scrap digging up car parks to relocate elsewhere. Forget abo...

Re: Houses built in Crystal palace park?

Bromley want money up front from any developers for the housing. £5M , if i recall correctly, to get things started. Personally, i am now of the opinion that the Master Plan will never take-off, as there are too many issues reliant on Council funding, and uncertainty in the UK economy. As THT sugges...

Re: Houses built in Crystal palace park?

Some good points, and well made. But the park is still not able to self-fund. Even with occasional special events. I agree, not a lot needs doing to the Park, but the terraces at the very top (where the funfair is occasionaly sited) could benefit from some work. Parhaps enhancing to reflect the Pala...

Re: Houses built in Crystal palace park?

just to give food for thought, and a few comparisons. the CPCA complain relentlessly about concerts and events that are very rare in the park. They complain about traffic and noise disturbance. So why were the recent proposed garden party events cancelled ? http://www.efestivals.co.uk/festivals/othe...

Re: Houses built in Crystal palace park?

i recall the discussion about the proposed move by Crystal Palace FC to Crystal Palace Park on STF also got wildly heated and personal. No Local Authority is capable of spending money on CPP to maintain it, let alone improve it. And residents close to CPP should not expect a beautiful empty Park (fo...

Re: Houses built in Crystal palace park?

i initially was in favour of the Masterplan. Indeed there are many facets that would hugely benefit the park, with potential revenue streams, from say the cricket pitch or cafe and bringing general tourism to the area. 'Planning Creep', as opposed to opening the floodgates is a more likely outcome. ...

Re: Houses built in Crystal palace park?

I am sitting uncomfortably on the fence on this one. On one hand the Planning Inspector has said each case should be judged on its own merits, and CPP should not set a precedent. However, I think it does create a precedent. How can it not do ? Not only does this put a lot of other (national) park sp...

Re: The Woodman

As others have stated (including myself), the exterior is a vast improvement. The issue is not following due process. I bet if W&S had retained that disgusting orange exterior paint, there would be uproar. If they followed the Planning Process there would be no issue. But we just don't know what the...

Re: The Woodman

This is one picture i have of the interior and furnishings. (why do i have this stuif ?). Probably around 2009 and taken in the evening on a quiet night. The interior was mostly a lovely dark aged wood. Absolutely gorgeous. Who knows what it is now,. . . . . http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7217/717385...
