Rivoli developer seeks additional storey

Just as we all thought the new Rivoli development, flung up at 59 Ladywell Road, is all-but finished with a sales open day just last month, it seems the developer wants to squeeze more value out of the site by adding another floor.  This is logged as planning application DC/14/89383 and you can find more here.
A lively debate has already opened up on this on Brockley Central.

Ladywell (Christmas) Supper Club - Friday 12 December at The Larder, Ladywell

Elen from the Ladywell Supper Club writes:

I am very excited to announce that I will be hosting a festive supper club at The Larder in Ladywell on Friday 12 December.  I believe it will be our best supper club to date and am so excited about celebrating this season's foods with a festive twist.

It will be a cocktail and four courses (and a few little extra bits here and there - it will be Christmas after all!) and tickets are priced at £32.00.

Tickets will go on sale on Friday November 21st @10am and will be available here.

Save Fossil Road's historic lampposts

Residents in and around Fossil Road are campaigning to save their historic lamposts which are to be replaced, under the controversial and oft-criticised Skanska contract, by bland modern lampposts. There are few similar examples in our increasingly bland and characterless Lewisham streetscape and one has to feel very sypathetic to the petitioners' goal.  Surely refurbishment to acceptable modern standards, albeit with some costs attached, must be an option?
They have set-up a petition to Sir Steve Bullock.
