  1. Re The Porcupine.
    I think that we should oppose the building of Lidl supermarket by any means available.
    The council needs to issue a compulsory purchase order to retain the Porcupine as a community asset.

    • Thank you for your comment.
      Please see new posting and update on Porcupine Consultation.

    • The porcupine is an eye sore and should be turned into a Lidl. Turn it into anything that will benefit the community and provide jobs for local residents.

      Area’s grow because of investments from larger companies and not from more Pubs.

      Cramming more housing int an already built up area is ridiculous. Look how bad it looks right by Mottingham station?

  2. Ive been a resident of Mottingham for 5 years now and I’m sad to see the area has not improved at all in this time. In fact the high street has got worse as it’s lost businesses and more shops are now empty. Please turn the eye sore of the porcupine into a Lidl, as I believe this will bring much needed life to our small high street.

    • The committee is also concerned about the situation, much of which is out of our hands. The shops are empty because the landlord from north London doubled the rent for existing tenants. The shopkeepers declined to unite as we advised. We will be watching the planning applications from Lidl carefully. If you have concerns for Mottingham, please join the Committee which is open to all members. Next meeting this month.
