Local meeting at
Our Lady & St Philip Neri School

Monday July 8 at 7.30pm in the Hall at
Our Lady & St Philip Neri school
208 Sydenham Road SE26 5SE

Lewisham’s Planning Department has arranged a local meeting to discuss the school’s current ‘minor variations’ application which is being considered by the Council. This application seeks approval for a number of variations from the original planning permission including:

· Alterations to the materials

· Alterations to the windows

· Alterations to the siting of the building and its height

· Alterations to the nursery entrance

· Planting on the corner of Sydenham Road & Fairlawn Park

Most importantly not being discussed is what happened to the conditions regarding improvements to Home Park, as some of the conditions to the original approval including the AGREED Main Entrance? Has anyone seen any improvements - paths, lighting and fewer cars delivering children to the Winchfield Road entrance? There are many questions that need answers about why so many conditions have not been complied with.

The meeting will be chaired by Cllr Tom Copley. It will be in a ‘question and answer’ format and will include the applicants and planning officers.
Please attend and share your concerns.

Were the world war two bombs we were warned about raised at the meeting?

Sydenham Society have been vocal on OLSPN, I just hope that they now shared their thoughts on all the other planning applications that they veto/support before a decision is made !

The meeting was quite heated and the chair was biased towards Syd Soc members and objectors, even though technically they were in the minority. The contamination issues were pretty much quashed but Syd Soc still not sure due to documentation not being publicly available. The works to continue the project are now not able to carry on this summer, meaning I have another year of looking at a building site and children another year of an unfinished school. It is going to be addressed again at the assembly in August. It was good to see some residents who, like me, are tired of the delays.
