Wickham Way will be closed to traffic from 25th March until 8th April for essential gas replacement works. Homes along Wickham Way will continue to have access and the 352 bus route will be diverted. The route is not known at this time.

There have been several reports of dog walkers dropping their bags in tree pits and people's hedges. You have done the hard work in picking it up - PLEASE take it home and dispose of it properly!

*****

The Committee have decided to continue with the paid for plan to hire a contractor to dig over and tidy up tree pits. It would really be community spirited if residents continued the good work of maintaining them through the season.

****

A ULEZ camera has been installed in Wickham Way at the Chinese Garage roundabout.

*****

On tins and plastic recycling days, please remember to rinse out food containers for recycling. Foxes have a habit of pulling out tasty containers and spreading them about.

The Lawnmower Shed on St Dunstans Lane had an application for improvements refused by Bromley Planning Department.

This is subject to an appeal and all details can be read here.

Please remember you (or your gardener) should not blow leaves on to the pavement or road. These end up in the storm water gullies, blocking them and causing flooding.

Resident complain about the state of our pavements. If you see a paving stone out of position by 3/4 inch (18mm), then please photograph the pavement, note the exact location and then upload the details to the Bromley Council website under Fix my Street

*****

The Council is committed to have crews removing leaves in our streets. If you see excess leaves, then please report it on
Fix my Street.

The Association has hired a contractor to clear and maintain over a hundred street tree pits in Park Langley. Bushey Way has been chosen as a pilot to see if this will be successful. Work has been completed and residents have been encouraged to maintain the pits. The plan would be for us to create a 'Bee Corridor' with each pit planted with flowers rich in pollen to encourage bio diversity.
We have subsequently won a grant from Veolia to enhance this Bee Corridor. Hopefully it will become an enthusiastic enterprise for residents which will later be extended to other roads in Park Langley.
Details and futher links are available here.
******
Langley Annex Ltd have applied for a liquor licence and the application has been heard. The decision made is that liquor can be served until 6pm.

******

The hairdresser Shellshock at 312 Pickhurst Lane have applied for a change of use to become a hot food outlet. This has been refused.

Park Langley Litter Pickers (PLLP)

Consider joining the Litter Pickers. Our litter never seems to end - there is always more to pick up. Who knows where it comes from but your help in keeping it under control is invaluable.
