messageAdvice on moving into Steen Way near Greendale
Posted by Zaardvark May 16, 04:49PM

Hello
We are moving to Steen Way (where Green Dale/East Dulwich Grove meet) in late June. We need to park a moving truck and move wardrobes. The council tell me there are no bays that could be suspended and there are bollards at either end of the pedestrianised street/lane. Some of the bollards look as if they are removable but I cannot find who to ask.

Can anyone who has moved in or out of there recently give us advice? Or do we just face a difficult move? (We have a lot of furniture.)

Thanks

Z

Not very helpful of the council!

Find out who your local councillor is, for the new address and approach them, or..

If you are close by, wander around Steen Way and knock on a few doors and (distantly) ask?

Something's got confused here, you can park on Green dale which is right next to Steen Way. Alternatively you could park on East Dulwich Grove, there's a load of bays a little ways down from Steen. You would also have the car park at the back of the estate where I'm sure you'll have a spot.

Thanks - the issue is that we have lots of furniture. Green dale parking would be great but is fully occupied on the 5 or 6 times I have checked. Yes, there are bays further down East Dulwich grove. However, our moving company would like to park closer. Otherwise, we will have to pay more, which is looking likely, I suppose!

Siousxiesue - yes good idea, I will contact the local councilor. Thanks.

Worth asking the people moving out what they will do and if they could reserve the space with bins for you?
