Reporting Parties in Littleheath Woods 25/07/2013 08:28:00......Posted by Sara Bashford
We have been made aware that there have been some noisy parties taking place in Littleheath Woods, the latest one being this Saturday (20th July). Whilst we do not know who is arranging these, they seem to be well organised with vans bringing sound equipment, tables, chairs and Gazebo's. However, they are not authorised or allowed and they have been disturbing the local residents. If you become aware through social media or any other means, that another party is going to take place, please do let one of your local Councillor's know or contact the Selsdon Safer Neighbourhood Team on 020 8721 2464. Should another party take place we have sort the guidance of Police and the Council and the advice is to dial 999. This is due to the fact that it transpires from information obtained following the previous party, that drugs were being used and that there were people driving away from the road, who might have been under the influence of either or drugs or alcohol. I know that previously residents dialled 101 and that got no response, which is why the advice we had was to dial 999. The council have also suggested that they are phoned on 020 8726 6000 and the emergency team requested, as the Council is responsible for the woods. Both the Council and Police are aware of previous parties, so know the call is not about a one off event and will attend if priorities allow. Whilst we don't want to prevent people having a good time in the lovely weather, we do all have to live together and respect each others need to sleep and have quiet enjoyment of our homes.
Gas main replacement in Farnborough Avenue 10/10/2018 10:50:00.......Posted by Robert Ward
Southern gas networks are today, 10th October starting work to replace the gas main in Farnborough Avenue, which will include some works across the mouth of Copse view and Heathfield Vale. The majority of the work will involve open cut trenches in Farnborough Avenue, in the line of where cars would normally park, so existing flows will be maintained.
It will be necessary to close Farnborough Avenue whilst they trench across Heathfield Vale, connecting the new main to the existing one. Two-way lights will be in use on Heathfield Vale through this phase of works. Advanced warning of this closure will go out one week before it is due to happen, with a local diversion signposted.

Went to Monks Hill for their community association meeting. They were discussing plans for their Christmas Crafts event in December and I am happy to support this using some funds from the Ward budget. They have set the date for their Fund Day next year - 1st June - look forward to it!
Consultation on new Planning Guidelines 04/10/2018 17:36:00.......Posted by Helen Pollard
Went to the consultation event about the Intensification of the Suburbs proposals that are being put forward by the Council. There were some good visuals, a video and some models which clearly showed the impact of the additional housing on communities. I am not convinced this is the best way to tackle the housing shortage.
