  1. Could you lease put a piece in the newsletter about fly tipping. It is fly tipping to leave unwanted items on the pavement or grass verges outside your house. This seems to have become a trend on Grove a Park Road. We have a mirrored cabinet and an office chair currently on view and causing the pavement to become a hazard for walkers, mobility scooters and pushchairs. I have reported both on Love Clean Streets and Littergram.

    • Hello Rosemary
      Might I suggest you try “Fix My Street” on the COUNCILS page of the website ?
      I have had remarkable success with this and very prompt replies from Bromley.
      One of our local ward councillors (David Cartwright) lives in Grove Park road, and may be of assistance.
      Good luck

  2. Hi we are home owners on West Park. We are wondering who has started keeping farming yard animals- particularly the cockerel that disturbs our sleep everyday. We are young professional with stressful jobs and its yoo hot to keep tge windows closed. Could we please ask the owner to get rid of it before this becomes someones cockerel soup.

    • Hello Gurbani

      In reply to your comment regarding chicken nuisance.
      I am not sure that there is anything the MRA can do for you apart from sympathise.
      I would suggest that you contact one of the Greenwich Ward councillors to see if there is anything that they can do or advise.
      Yours faithfully

  3. Fed up with Heathrow and London City Airport planes flying over this area. They are noisy and polluting. Bad for our health and well-being. The City planes fly on a Concentrated Flight path which is resulting in a noise ghetto – flights should be spread over a much wider area.

  4. The Greenwich Council, on an appeal, has granted an application (the property is near to completion) for an 8 bed HMO in Bowmead, Mottingham.
    It is a quiet road and has controlled parking during the week. There is no facility for 8 cars to be parked on the property.

      Having discussed with our planning experts, I have learned that :
      The 6 bed HMO was a follow up application from the original 8 bed which Greenwich refused.
      They appealed for the 8 & won so the 6 bed was allowed to lapse.
      It is worth noting that it is the National Planning Inspectorate which makes the appeal decisions, and not Greenwich Council.


  5. Can u help. I live in Lavidge. My neighbour has embarked on a frenzy of building, each step by stealth (no consultation).Firstly they built a single brick ‘house’ at the bottom of the garden. Secondly a massive loft conv. Thirdly a brick extension on back of house. Leaving the the garden half its original size. Houses backing onto the property now have a real eye-sore of a view. There are 8 adults and 3 children currently there and maybe more? I wonder how the 1930’s drains/sewer will cope. But my real frustration is the lack of advance warning or ability to comment on such drastic changes. Greenwich have had complaints since January but seem oblivious. Is there anything I can do at this late stage ??

    Kind regards – Michelle Bond/Kitley

    • Suggest you contact your ward councillor John Hills (see Councils page).
      Have also forwarded your comment to our planning team.

      • Thank you – We are today told that Greenwich are sending someone to photo and check on the new structures. So hopefully this will be sorted out officially. Thank you for your help and will let you know the outcome. Regards
