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

Thanks for pointing out my error regarding primary and secondary. Happy to stand corrected, JRW is right, I should have said infant and junior.

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

Trying to squeeze primary and secondary school pupils on this small site so you could sell the land on Mayow road for flats smacks of greed and a lack of consideration the pupils and their wellbeing, the Archdiocese should be ashamed. This along with the debacle of Virgo Fidelis indicates the Archdi...

Loft conversion question

We are thinking of having a loft conversion and are trying to find out the criteria for building up to boundary walls. I can find information regarding dropping back 20 cm from roofline but nothing about the side walls. If anyone has any definitive information on the criteria that Lewisham planning ...

Re: Lewisham planning 400 flats for Sydenham Road

Hardly any mention of Lower Sydenham in the grand plan! Not sure why Lewisham are pursuing this type of development agenda when the world has changed so dramatically in the last year. Interesting article in the Guardian on what is possible with a bit of creative thinking and the recognition that hig...

Re: Lewisham Local Plan

Is there any evidence of people’s view being taken on board from previous consultations? I get the sense these consultations are a bit of a smokescreen and to give people the impression they are involved in decisions that affect their local area. Looking at the comments there are a lot of improve pa...

Re: Sewer/drain location maps within home boundaries

Hi RJM, it was built around 1900 so hopefully Lewisham will have something. That's really helpful, thank you. I'll get in touch with them.

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

Hi JRW, Thanks for all your hard work trying to hold the developers, archdiocese, and Lewisham Council to account for this situation. My question is regarding the Sydenham Society. Other than letting you know they could not afford a barrister to assist you have they offered you any other support? Ch...

Does Lewisham Council take it constituents support for granted?

Are we as residents really listened to? Is it a case that Lewisham as a long-standing Labour borough has taken it constituents generous support for granted? I have just read that Lewisham Council have approved a large, overbearing development at Mais House despite strong objections from the local co...

Home Park today

Is there a party in Home Park today? If yes, does anyone know who in Lewisham Council authorises this. It would be common courtesy to let local residents know in advance.

Re: Consultation on Proposal to Close Silverdale/Bishopsthorpe Road to traffic

More effort should be spent making Sydenham Road more walker/bike friendly. Queensthorpe Road is already blocked off and has not benefited the residents of Sydenham other than the homeowners who already live within the conservation area and left a big square opposite the post office that is practica...
