    It looks much better from the outside than their previous location.

    Any news on what will happen to their old store?

    It's an outstanding example of thoughtless design; something Network Rail excel at. See also Denmark Hill station for hopeless circulation space and crowd flow, and Herne Hill station for how to refurb a historic building in the most underwhelming way possible.

    Surely this is an example of Secured By Design:
    They swapped over the entrance to stop passengers stealing free rail trips by rushing the gates. And it worked (or maybe we're not fit enough to vault over the barriers anyway).

    Any updates on the LJ Station renovations? It looks awful and there is no elevator. It's a disgrace...

    What renovations are those?
    If you are local and want to make a suggestion you could come to the developers at this meeting about the site opposite. If this new housing scheme was done right there could be scope for station improvements IMHO.

    Not really, it's the Sureways church site that (might) offer scope for improvements. This proposal doesn't include that bit.

    Shouldn't we be asking the council and Peabody to use powers to put it in?

    Do you mean a compulsory purchase of the Sureways site?
     
  13. CH1

    CH1 "Red Guard"(NLYL)

    If necessary yes. It would make a huge difference to the site as a housing scheme, enable pavement widening and station improvements as you say.

    I don't disagree but can't see it happening.

    A 23-year-old man has died after being stabbed in south London.

    critical1 All views expressed are definitely my own.

    Jack really needs help from Lib Peck as she’s the expert within communities.

    Now what was that new post Lib Peck went to as I can’t seem to recall? Head of something, any ideas?

    You've got to be doing something pretty fast and at such a strange angle on that stretch of road to hit that lamppost at such an exact right angle. Car drivers around LJ = :mad:

    Does anyone know if the court case re Peter Shorinwa and Sade Adedotun is going ahead? I was shocked to learn of it and the fact that Peter is still Chair of the LEMB and that Sade is still running the Loughborough Estate Office. Surely they should have been suspended until the matter has been resolved.

    As has been posted previously the court case is in the legal process now. So I guess its going ahead.

    From what I heard at last general meeting of LEMB this was brought up from the floor of the meeting.

    Due to posting here many more people on estate new about it.

    Yes Peter and the board are bullish on this. From what I heard about last meeting when residents were able to voice there views Peter and Baord were adamant they were going to contest allegations. And they weren't even thinking of standing down until case is resolved.

    From what I've heard Urban75 meant that people on estate got to know about this. Board hadn't told residents about this.

    Draw ones one conclusions.
