Good to know, I don't drink beer much any more so hadn't checked if they sold wine, ta.
Clearly stung by last night's criticism, there are now four yellow-jacketed fellas hard at work relaying the stones on Station Rise
Check out Tulse Hill going all upmarket....new pathways, posh booze, The Tulse Hill Tavern...
What fate awaits the White Hart now Heineken have pulled out of negotiations with the Landlord? Will the Railway become a boutique hotel instead of a Hostel.....will gentrification take hold and shake us mere mortals out of our trees?
They are often around in the mornings from about 7.30ish...
Yes, they are! And after making an unholy row till 9, they all piss off to have their breakfast for an hour and a half, as do the builders that have been in the flat next to ours for the last 13 months(!). Why they can't just have breakfast before they start work, y'know like normal people do, and then actually start at 9 is beyond me.
Big problem for flats and businesses on Station Rise is that there are no wheelie bins, there's nowhere to keep them. We're instructed by the council to leave rubbish on the street to be collected - and it normally is every night, by the same truck that scoops up all the stuff left outside the charity shop. The shop thinks people just nick the donations - but they might as well as that lorry will take it all away anyway.
...because they tend to go for a fry up (to fuel all that manual work) and most cafes aren't open that early and not many people want to start cooking their own fry up at 5:30/6am (depending on how far they are travelling to get to work).
Yeah, I'm sure that's a major issue. I was referring to the corner by the pharmacy opposite the Tulse Hill Hotel, which is a particularly bad spot for rubbish dumping, but I guess residents and businesses face the same problem as what you describe.
This was the scene this evening, which is a massive improvement. When the railings were in place the entire bloody corner was often covered in rubbish (probably because it was a 'dead end' corner that was of no use to passers-by), so it seems at least the rubbish is packed more neatly now
As an afterthought, I wouldn't be surprised if railings don't make any difference to pedestrian safety, or actually prove less safe than having no barriers.
There's also no bike parking there - I've always battled through the rubbish to park my bike against those railings when visiting the chemist/PO etc. I hope they put some bike parking there.
The majority of that rubbish is dumped by the shops there - I've seen lots from the chemist/hair shop and the pizza place. I really hate it. I don't understand why there isn't some big bins for the businesses.
I think there was some research to say it's ultimately as safe without railings, but it certainly feels counter-intuitive (much like the Copenhagen crossings). However, I can see a lot of cars mounting the pavement rounding that corner and I'll be extra careful heading north on my bike through the bus/cycle lane.
Liked for the bike parking comment - def need more there. Which is going to happen soon according to the plans.
There's been a fire in KC supermarket! Three fire engines out. It doesn't seem too severe though.
ooh blimey - hope they're all ok!
Anyone else spot this lot? Seem to be opening up in the old Edward Ashdale estate agents:
BOB WINES Crystal Palace
(I have a vague idea someone else might have posted this already - sorry if so)
A man collapsed (I think) on my street just outside my house. Only knew cos Fingers text me as he saw it from norwoidroad on the bus. Ambulance and police came but he looked very poorly. So police tape around where he was lain on the road. I spoke to one of the officers who said that no foul play is suspected but they need to cordon the area off just in case. Poor bloke hope he makes it.
Yes was posted earlier. Saw inside yesterday. Doesn't look like much ATM.
Police door knocking now.
Some fucker keyed my car on Kinfauns Road. £2,000 worth of damage. I had the cops out.

Neighbourhood Plan Working Group Volunteers
The government has radically reformed the planning system to empower local communities and decentralise planning policy where possible. The Neighbourhood Plan isn’t just about housing development; we have to vigorously protect our environment and the benefits we enjoy from it.
We are looking to expand our working steering group by 4-6 key volunteer roles to be part of our current steering group made up of currently 6 volunteers
This Working Group was formed to create a lasting vision and plan for the development of our neighbourhood from housing, transport, traffic, economic and environmental development and sustainability, to ensuring the town’s heath, wellbeing and happiness into the future.
The overall process will take 18-24 months and we are looking for professionals or those with skills and commitment to offer willing to provide their expertise in a working group. Commitment is essential whether for 6 months or the duration.
This is very much a community driven initiative that will involve a range of surveys and consultation meetings before, during and when the plan is completed. Communication and consultation is vital and the end result will be put to a referendum of the Neighbourhood’s whole population before the plan is examined and adopted into planning law.
This is a great opportunity to improve the services of our neighbourhood , build more and better jobs, ensure the right housing in the right place and protect the environment.
In order to meet the diverse needs of individuals and communities we need a range of volunteers with different skill sets, interests and expertise. We offer a number of opportunities for volunteers to help us
As set out below a range of skills and traits are required to produce a neighbourhood plan. Some technical, some transferable, some attributable purely to the sorts of personalities working on the plan. Wherever possible, we are looking for these skill through out the Steering Group (in no particular order of importance):
• promoting Tulse Hill Neighbourhood Plan to organisation and/or local area
• Preferably an understanding of the planning system and what it can and cannot achieve.
• The ability to analyse and assess often complex information
• The ability to promote and publicise.
• Actively being involved in local Consultation and community engagement
• Developing resources and guidance
• Good information technology skills, including the establishment and maintenance of websites use of social media and knowledge of applications such as excel, PowerPoint and publisher.
• Organising events and training for neighbourhood planning
• Promoting the benefits of volunteering, sharing experiences of Volunteering with Tulse Hill Forum and recruiting
• Good negotiators and strong advocates for what the plan is seeking to achieve.
• Motivational skills, allowing the group to help get the most out volunteers.
• Clear and objective decision making skills.
If you feel you have any of these skills and would like to become a member of The Tulse Hill Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group Working Committee please email
White Hart staff have been given a date in August as their last day.....
.....but the White Hart has made more comebacks than Rocky Balboa....so who knows what's gonna happen
Such a shame that no one competent has taken over that pub. There's no shortage of footfall.
Be prepared for traffic chaos:
Norwood Road is enough of a N/S bottleneck already.
6th August is apparently last day....and new owner is a 'developer' apparently...
Oh dear. Have you had a look around the planning database to see if anything has gone in?
I tried....but I'm not too clever with that stuff. I got nothing from my searches.
My take on it is this:
If a 'developer' is the new owner then they have yet to put in any planning apps etc and were trying to negotiate a continuation with the brewery to fill a gap while they decided on what they wanted to do with the building. These talks have been up and down for weeks now and the brewery threw in the towel this week....agreeing to keep pub open til Aug.
What happens next is anyone's guess.
Are those barriers on the crossing on Christchurch/hardel new? I only noticed this week while crossing there. I remember there was an accident there a while back...I'm guessing they're there because of that and nothing to do with Saturday's attack.
