Local frustration has been building over Council's shoddy custodianship of the Ladywell Baths (a.k.a.'The Playtower'), a fine Victorian building much valued and appreciated in Ladywell and far beyond (not least by the Victorian Society) but, sadly, in sorry decline over the last few decades.
Though the Council spent money a few years ago to weatherproof the building there is no real evidence that it is taking the urgent and concerted action required to safeguard the building in the long term.
The Ladywell Village Improvement Group has now launched a petition in an attempt to demonstrate the level of public interest in this matter and to press the Council into more demonstrable and meaningful action.
If we get 8,000 'signatures' by the time the petition closes in February we will be able to secure a debate in full Council. Please can Brockley Central readers sign the petition here.
