Re: Masks

I don't know how one could check to see if they can breathe through a particular mask (before potentially wasting a tenner), unless putting on two thin ones to see how that feels. Any other way? A harsh reality of the times and circumstances in which we find ourselves is that you are right to ask t...

Re: St Philip Neri school: Archdiocese appeals planning enforcement order

I have documentary evidence, so can back up everything I have said. The developers have no evidence to back any of their statements, having failed to submit the paperwork. Once more. It was a contractor, not a developer, who did more than just fail to submit one set of paperwork. This entire situat...

Re: Covid-19 Failure

BBC report from today. JD Wetherspoon has said that 66 of its workers have tested positive for the coronavirus but maintains that visiting pubs is safe. The company, which employs more than 41,000 people, said the vast majority of its pubs had recorded no positive tests for the virus. There had been...

Re: Flu-Jabs @ Sydenham Green now Covid test compatible

In all seriousness - it is regrettable that services appear to have deteriorated to such an appallingly bad level.

Re: St Philip Neri school: Archdiocese appeals planning enforcement order

However I don’t see how and why you think Julia will delay the process. Interesting that you have used that phrase. It is fairly certain that nowhere in any of the many posts in this matter has anyone accused Julia of delaying the process. Nor is it inferred that Julia's activities will cause delay...

Re: St Philip Neri school: Archdiocese appeals planning enforcement order

I have been to all meetings and know that drawing this out any longer will further damage community relations (JRW does not speak for all of Fairlawn Park). Using language like monstrosity doesn’t help either. Few will disagree with your narrative about a hideous monstrosity. Mea culpa - guilty wit...

Re: St Philip Neri school: Archdiocese appeals planning enforcement order

I feel your post has a rather condescending tone to it. Advisory and respectfully made requests perhaps - but each to their own. Does it really matter on whether it is a swift resolution? We have all been waiting for too long with this hideous monstrosity. I for one would rather wait a little longe...

Re: St Philip Neri school: Archdiocese appeals planning enforcement order

I couldn't agree with you more, JGD, compromise is vital to producing a swift resolution for everybody's sake. The trouble is the Archdiocese has refused to even discuss having discussions, let alone agree to start them. They haven't been willing to consider anything other than doing exactly as the...

Re: St Philip Neri school: Archdiocese appeals planning enforcement order

That sounds brilliant, thanks Prince. I will try and find them and give it a go. Currently, Lewisham are still refusing to hand over appeal documents, and the planning inspectorate at has ordered them to comply. This is why I'm not going to trust Lewisham to deal with it themselves. The pro-bono ad...

Re: a 60 foot (5G?) mast is coming to Newlands Park

Good tip Julia - thank you.

Will try it soonest - does it work on both council planning sites I wonder ?

Still think both councils need to step up and demand that they have master plans presented to them from All providers that show every proposed monopole installations.

But if they want a scrap, I wish they'd go and have it behind the bike sheds or somewhere. I, and I suspect others, really don't want to have to watch their mudslinging here.

Re: Does Lewisham Council take it constituents support for granted?

I just wondered how Lewisham consider environmental issues when approving these developments. Closing off high value roads under the guise of COVID whilst reports on poor air quality around our schools seems to be brushed under the carpet.
