More bins would necessitate more staff to empty them and we have been told before there is no budget for more street cleaning staff. The coffers overflow for projects to close roads and ban parking

Suspect the new pitch will also be turned into flats in the next few years, given that football clubs are not compatible with social distancing and therefore unlikely to be financially viable at the b

I just don't understand where the council gets the money from for all this. Tens of thousands of pounds, probably hundreds of thousands, have already been wasted trying to impose changes on parkin

Oh, is the plan already to close all of Elsie Rd, Derwent Grove and Melbourne Grove? That will create a lot of extra congestion at each end of all those roads, and an island of pollution surrounde

If they close Melbourne Grove, eventually they will have to close Derwent Grove too. And then when that's closed they will need to close Elsie Road.

From Melbourne Grove in the south to East Dulwich Grove in the North. One lane for south bound traffic only on Lordship Lane then make Melbourne Grove one way going the other way. This would al

Most of the project is in DV. Most of the impact will be in Goose Green. Apart from all the traffic and pollution, part of the fallout will be the council feeling entitled to resurrect the dead, ma

It's especially non-sensical if they've also banned any actual burials.

It could be cynical if the scenario was that they reduce services taxpayers pay for instead of reducing payments to councillors or pay rises to those implementing the service reductions etc - that's o

If you look at the very last page of this, it does seem that the Mayor / GLA agree with the developer that "Very Special Circumstances" exist to build on the MOL. https://planning.southwark.gov.uk/

how much money have the council spaffed up the wall consulting on whether or not Melbourne Grove should become a gated community? It's odd that James McAsh would support that proposal given his wid

There is someone on here who always goes on about how appalling it is that so much public land (the sides of the roads) is given over to parking. These double yellows now reserve quite a bit of that l

I think they will put double yellow lines in those gaps. I've seen a similar such gap over a dropped curb that is no longer in use but ate least two parking spaces will be lost

The grid lock is all caused by the phasing of the traffic lights (possibly by design). If there were round abouts instead traffic would flow much more freely.

I would imagine that very few Dulwich College kids parking in Hunts Slip rd have anything at all to do with congestion in Court Lane, Eyennella Road, Townly Rd, Calton Ave etc.
