*****

Langley Annexe Ltd have purchased the playing fields of the old Warren in St Dunstans Lane. The Association believes this Company wish to convert this land into a sucessful commercial enterprise. After some 50 years of using these fields as a low key sports venue and operating in harmony with the neighbours, this could change dramatically in the future.

The Company have applied for three five aside all weather pitches with associated floodlights. Comments for this application have closed and we await the report by the planning case officer.

The Company have applied to convert the garages into The Lawnmower Shed serving tea and coffee and food. Hours of opening are 8am to 8pm throughout the year 'while sporting activity is taking place'. Comments on this application remain open (2 July).

Both applications can be found on the Bromley Planning Portal. Search planning applications and type in

 BR3 3SS.

 

The Association have no issue with the land being used for sport as it has been for many years. It opposes the prospect of a large commercial enterprise with floodlights, noise, parking and all other issues that come with providing adult sporting facilities.

After years of asking, Bromley Council have planted a great number of street trees in our area. Wickham Way alone received 49 new trees. Each tree has a watering bag and we hope to prepare a video showing how the watering system works.

 

Burglary and car theft continues in Sortlands and Park Langley.

Please take extra care in locking your house, garden shed and car.

Don't become a victim of crime. It is very unpleasant.

 

We pride Park Langley as being Clean and Green. Please maintain the standard by looking after your waste and recycling bins. Put them out on the correct day and then take them in to keep the street scene as pleasant as possible.

 

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.

A request to our Residents:

 

The Association communicates with Park Langley residents twice a year through the Yellow Newsletter.

Recent events have shown this is inadequate and many residents complain they do not know about important issues affecting Park Langley. This should not continue.

 

The Association has decided to set up a dedicated email address which will be used by the Park Langley Residents' Association to send messages it considers important. This will not be a Nextdoor and messages will be rare.

 

For this to happen, we need the email addresses of our residents who are interested to participate. What we need is:

Your Name:

First line of your street address:

A phone number (optional in case the email we use bounces back):

We will take the email address from the sender:

 

Remember by sending your email address, you agree we can use this address to contact you. Of course it will be totally confidential and only used by the Park Langley Resident's Association.

 

The address to send your message is:

 

parklangleyresidentsbr3@gmail.com

 

 

Thank you for joining.

Our residents are grateful to those who pick up litter from the streets of Park Langley. Wind and rain cannot stop them.
