Re: Lewisham planning 400 flats for Sydenham Road

The plan already says Development must not adversely impact character or amenity of the public house within the site, which is locally listed. So the pub isn't at risk, that's a slightly alarmist statement from SydSoc. What else should we expect from the "Sydenham Society".... apposed to ...

Re: Who's standing in the Sydenham by election in May?

I will keep an eye on this thread - but I’m likely to pick up any questions on Facebook or Twitter more quickly. Details in an earlier post. If you live in Sydenham ward, I’d love to hear from you!

Mess left in Mayow Park

After seeing a few very large groups in Mayow Park on Saturday having large gatherings whilst they could before today’s change of social group size, I was disappointed to see such mess left in Mayow Park on Sunday.

Re: 18m telecom pole outside of tennis club gate!!

That’s a very good point. I couldn’t find the word “Huawei” explicitly in the equipment schedule, though. Would you mind pointing me direction? Take the code references from the Schedule of Equipment documents and drawings and do a web-search. The antennae and other kit reference results will almos...

I wonder if this is the man who is around 6ft tall, wears a brown jacket and asks for a quid... when you're at a cash point. Very intrusive.
