D-Days for Brockley Road

Cllr Ute Michel reports on Green Ladywell that:

"The date has finally been set: the appeal against Lewisham Council's decision to turn down the betting shop licence application for the former Homeview video shop on Brockley Road will be heard at the Magistrates Court on 13-15 May."

So then, that's the day when we'll find out whether we'll continue to cram more and more bookies in to the same space as more and more centres for the vulnerable. Or whether, by rejecting the appeal, we will free up one of most important sites on Brockley Road for something more useful for the whole community and, by doing so, give the regeneration process that has started around the station a chance of spreading further (rather than strangling it at birth).

Decisions, decisions!
