Ladywell Ward Assembly

A quick reminder, courtesy of Cllr Ute Michel that the Ladywell Ward Assembly takes place tomorrow. She writes:

The next meeting of the Ladywell Assembly does not have a formal agenda but it is a social event which provides an opportunity to find out what’s happening in Ladywell ward, get information about local services and meet other residents. Local groups and services will present themselves at stalls and will be available to answer questions and provide further information about their activities.


It is going to take place this coming Saturday, 14 March – please pop in at any time between 11:00 and 13:00 in the new science block of Prendergast School on Adelaide Avenue (not in the main school building in Hilly Fields) for a chat and a cup of tea.


We hope to get around to our write-up of the Brockley Ward Assembly shortly.

I should go to this and moan about the doggie dump stencils, however I am unfortunately otherwise engaged.

If anyone attends please moan on my behalf.

I won't repeat yesterday's rant!

I moaned about this particular topic at the Brockley one.

Cllr Dean Walton said...

Probably terribly rude and breaks all sorts of netiquette. However I did a rough and ready report of the Third Assembly and it's on my blog.

I'm not comfortable discussing this in non-haiku format.

I have never been to any of these local 'assemblies' (sounds a bit liek Northern Ireland) but may I suggest as a neutral resident that item number 1 for the Ladywell Ward Assembly Agenda is: Why Ladywell Fishbar is not taken to account for its yellow junkfood boxes littering the streets of Ladywell every morning. If the big chains are held-to-account for the litter their businesses cause then why not local establishments?

Ladywell looks like a pigstig most mornings and the amount of tax wasted cleaning it up after the animals who litter it must be astronomical. Yet as I walk down Adelaide Avenue to get a train every morning I can litterally follow a trail of cheap meat and yellow boxes to the door of the Ladywell Fishbar. Their packaging is strewn everywhere.

Why not make reducing this clean-up burden a priority of the LWA and actually do something to improve what is (lets all face it) a pretty minging looking part of London.

Cllr Dean Walton - is Lewishambles Council EVER going to tackle the issue of the grotesque high street frontage which plague the Borough? Lewisham Borough (Blackheath Excl.) resembles 1970's Birmingham in terms of shopfront presentation. Its the pigsear of a place which needs a tough no nonsense hand ....

Cllr Dean Walton said...

Not going to discuss this ini haiku language - this is after all posts for the ladywell Assembly not Brockley's.


@Paddydom - I think that takeaways and the like should be made to help clear up the litter after the food has been eaten. The argument against this of course is that it's the customers who are actually dropping the litter. At the very least the takeaways should be providing litter bins at about 10 minutes walk from their shops and contributing to the clean up operation.

With regard to the issue of tidying up the shop fronts. Lewisham can and has made grants in the past to do this - I think New Cross got quite a bit and quite a few years ago the shops along Upper Brockley Road - adjacent to the Wickham Arms (now mostly converted to houses/flats). Many smaller shops in local parades are struggling and as a result may not be willing to spend the money on their appearance. It may be a good use of funds that could support local shops (by making them more attractive) and improving the general area by giving grants in this way.

There was a slow take up in New Cross - if you are talking about the NDC area - as it was a grant contributing to the costs and all the shopkeepers were either struggling and could not afford it or are doing very well, thank you, and don't see the need.

It's amazing that Lewisham seems to have enforced conservation area regulations quite thoroughly in Blackheath. Not a satellite dish out of place and seemingly shop fronts immaculately maintained without garish PVC plastic anywhere, yet Brockley (also partly a conservation are) goes unnoticed.

The council blatantly views wealthy Blackheath as the jewel and everywhere else can do what the f it wants....

Paddyom said...

HH - this topic really makes me mad(as you may have noticed from my earlier thread)...but lets not divert the subject of this thread. Back to Ladywell Ward Assembly.......

Totally agree re Blackheath vs. Brockley conservation rules enforcement.

I was stuck in traffic in Blackheath on Sunday and had loads of time to study the shop fronts and there was not a neon light or naff plastic fried chicken illumination to be seen! Nothing against the actual product, just object to the inappropriateness of the signage in a conservation area! (Then again maybe the illustrious residents of Blackheath don’t eat fried chicken?)

The newish fried chicken place (next to the post office) opened a couple of years ago and its hideous neon shop front was never questioned. Don’t these businesses receive guidance from the council before they start investing money into their signage? It is such a waste of money if they have to start all over again because of lack of awareness (which is not excuse).

However, I have noticed that recently if there have been any upgrades to premises they have abided by the rules. Maybe post the Speedicars row more note is being taken?

My other major gripe is the paving in front of the shops and sorting office on Brockley Road. They are uneven, major puddles form when it rains and several slabs wobble when you step on them.

And then there is Nick’s pet topic of the railings which are frequently bent out of shape.

Surely it’s in the Council’s interest to regenerate business areas attracting more local shoppers i.e. keeping the money in Lewisham by shopping locally.

Since I’m paying 2.5% more in Council tax this year I would like some of that to go into improving my physical environment – and not only on maintaining existing services.

Of course the £10, 000 we get to spend locally is great and I fully back the planting of new trees etc, but can’t we get the Council to take the initiative and spot these things themselves and bring about improvements. (Actually, probably that is asking too much!)

Bea said...

I wonder if Blackheath squirrels are partial to fried chicken in the same way their Brockley cousins are!?
