Hi Lee, Don't give up hope, I think you'll find 113 still on the market after Xmas. Although I understand them holding out for more money, it hasn't materialised and probably never will. The price on this property has consistently dropped in the months it has been up for sale. I know the property yo...

Bell Green Development

I have seen the hoardings up from the developers at Bell Green. Does anyone know when work is due to start and where we can see the final approved plan.

We went to PM on Sat with 4 kids / 3 adults. Ribs were great, but the pork chop was incinerated, chips a bit soggy, chicken wings a bit soggy. Waitress struggled to understand our order and a beer we ordered wasn't available. Oh and back to the 4 kids thing they only had 1 high chair :roll: . Why sp...

I have lived on Fairlawn Park for 5 years approx and its a fairly quiet street. As stated we did have a problem with the mini scooters but I got in touch with the Safer Neighbourhood Team and they were quick to respond and told me they had spoken to the offending yoots!! Things quietened down after ...

But the area lower down, beyond Kent House is clearly another matter. Here is an part of Sydenham which has many positive points - some good streets, a library and a potentially nice park. With this in mind, surely the audit should have started at this end and worked its way up to Cobbs Corner and ...

Hi Jwana,

Welcome to Lewisham (maybe). I too am in a mixed marriage and am looking at areas in Oz to relocate to. Whereabouts are you? by the way Lewisham is one of the most ethnically diverse areas in London, so you will have no problems in that regard.

Hi Chris, The area between Cobbs Corner and Mayow Road has some the most expensive housing in Sydenham. As the talk is of "millions" with regards to investment, surely the area past Mayow Road towards Bell Green is in need of more investment? What are the plans for these areas in the grand scheme of...

As Gregs postings are getting more and more bizarre, perhaps once he has moved to the well-heeled area right at the top of the hill the low earning receptionist and 'runners' can push him over the edge :shock: Greg, your obsession with class and money is making you look very insecure and I must say ...

But why do I often hear black people calling other black people n*****s without any reprisals? Lisa, why do you care??

Agreed people go to Kirkdale Bookshop because it is a great shop, that doesn't mean that a Homebase in Sydenham is a good idea. Spare a thought for the residents who will have to contend with increased traffic flow. My road is currently being used as a rat run by maniacal drivers who don't seem to u...
