Re: No tap water anyone ? 22/10/2018

UPDATE: Thames have just sent me a text saying: 'Your water supply should soon be back to normal as we have now finished our repair. We are sorry for the disruption this has caused' ENDS

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).

Re: New aldi

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...

Re: Sainsbury's Bell Green

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

Re: New aldi

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!

Can't see that working myself as there is already a decent choice of pubs that serve food along Sydenham Road.

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. The permit situation is a tough ...

Re: Obstruction of Knighton Park Road

Do you know who is responsible? Is the block owned by Hexagon?
I've had a brief look on the interweb and can't find any clues - I think a strong letter needs to be written as it seems there either aren't enough bins or there are simply not enough collections....but it's pretty foul

Re: Obstruction of Knighton Park Road

The other issue here is that the waste lorries can't get down from the high st and don't seem to want to reverse all the way down from the Hillmore Gv end - thus the flats at the end of the road never have their bins collected - it looks pretty filthy Park House has its bins collected separately.

Re: Loud motorbike revving can be heard from Westwood Hill

We have heard them for the last couple of nights, although interestingly not last night. There have always been a few bikes around since I've lived here - I know of three that are residents of the flats next to Home Pk - and they fly along the high st at night. Seems they have gained a few pals. It ...

Re: The Monstrosity - ie St Philp Neri school building

To be honest, it is too early for me to make suggestions about improvements, although I certainly could make some! First, we need to hear from Lewisham on their next steps in the matter. This is not going to be a quick fix, and I believe that we should both focus attention on the planning failures,...

Re: I’m being spied on

I'm sure that however the Labour Party got information about (or guessed) your previous voting patterns, it won't have been by illegally tracing your ballot paper(s) through the unique number. If that sort of thing went on, we would have heard about it and it would constitute a major political scan...

Re: The Monstrosity

I live as a neighbour of the St Philip Neri school in Fairlawn Park, and am appalled by its design quality. It is the kind of structure you expect on an industrial estate, not in such a prominent position. Lewisham Council has let us down appallingly over this development, especially after a notabl...
