Iíve had a detailed and helpful reply from Andy and Catherine - they are aware of this campaign and the key bit of their email about the skaters says:
Dulwich Wood councillors
The priority for a temporary use of the site is for short term coach parking to stop school coaches having a negative impact on local roads and this was agreed after public consultation some years ago.
The views of residents of Gloucester Court which is immediately adjacent to the site are important regarding any other temporary use of the site here, as are the views of other residents and the local police who have had to deal with complaints of class A drug dealing and use, anti-social behaviour and sex with minors in the neighbouring ward recently (not on the Grove Tavern site).
If Gloucester Court residents (in particular) and other local residents potentially impacted by noise are not disturbed by a temporary skate park and the police donít receive complaints about crime or anti social behaviour on the site then Catherine and I are happy with a meanwhile use of the site in the short to medium term and we met with the Dulwich Estate yesterday to explain this.
I think the Dulwich Estate are now also broadly happy with a temporary use of the site if they donít receive complaints, but Stonegate Pubs may still have concerns of their own - they are difficult to contact and have had many staff on furlough recently which has made communication even more difficult.
So it sounds as if there is a solution here with the Estate, given the acknowledgement there havenít been any issues or complaints about the skaters - although who knows about the pub chain.
