Council to send out 8000 CPZ leaflets


Recommended Posts

We have had nothing and nor have our immediate neighbours. It did seem very ambitious for Cllr McAsh to think you could get them reprinted and sent to 8,000 households in just over a week pr perhaps there has been yet another council "oversight". Surely if they have not been delivered the consultation deadline has to be extended yet again?

Yes, I would think anther extension would be required.

I wonder how much it costs to do one door to door mail drop to 8000 residences (although we know only some of that was actually done) and then a mail out of 8000?

No doubt the Council/ Cllr McAsh will pull the 'it's not our fault if the mail is not working' stunt.

To add an offside comment. Sometime ago the Council posted a booklet giving Southwark Services up date. One item was regarding collection of refuse. If you wanted a calendar for the year email. Duly did almost a month has now passed, no calendar. All replies  from Environmental Servies from the Leader down has send within 2/3 day it will be sent. No calendar.


If 1 item cannot be sent what chance do you think you have with 8000 arriving

Surprise, surprise. Cllr McAsh knew exactly what he was doing there: use a failing and unreliable service to deliver within a very tight deadline, expecting the system will fail but secure in the knowledge the Council will not be held accountable for that failure. Meantime, as few residents as possible are alerted to an extension for the consultation. 

I really hope that the residents who got the last extension now ask for another, despite the Council's announcement that the consultation is over.

    • We lost a beloved toy fox on lordship lane, Saturday 2nd march in the afternoon. He has cute green overalls. Was hand knitted and a special gift. If anyone happened to pick him up, we’d be very grateful for his safe return!  Imogen  07791842153.
    • I hope you never run into the last character eating chicken on my bus-he was an older guy, and when he'd finished his food, removed his dentures and picked them clean 😗 I'm still getting over it!
    • We once chose a decorator based on a long history of good reviews on here. It didn’t occur to us that he would ‘outsource’ the work to someone else who did a pretty poor job. Lesson learned. Always check that the person with the good reviews will be actually doing the work.
    • Openreach is a wholly owned subsidiary of BT Group but is obliged under regulation to act even-handedly with BT UK and all other of its wholesale customers - that is that all companies supplying services through the Openreach local Network must be treated similarly - so BT Retail has no better, or hopefully worse, access to Openreach as does any other competing company. Openreach has 'passed' much of East Dulwich with fibre to the premises (FTTP) capability.  BT is rebranding all its Retail services to 'EE' (that is, services to private/ residential customers) and I believe to SMEs as well. It is keeping the BT brand as a marketing name for its Major Business business. The maximum speed for FTTC (fibre to the cabinet) services is about 60-70MG to the household router - which is described I believe by some estate agents as superfast, curiously. The real FTTP services in ED are at the moment 500 or 1000MG to the router, and broadly achieve quite close to that, although speeds to the apparatus via WiFi are much less. To get actual benefit of the fibre speed you will need an ethernet network internally.
