We have just been informed that The New River Company have acquired the lease to the Blenheim Centre Car Park.
At present car parking is free while a new payment system is developed.
The car park has been underused for a long time putting pressure on local roads, this development should make parking easier and attract shoppers back into Penge.
We have campaigned for a long time to bring this facility back into use and thank Penge Traders for their assistance with this.
Sri Lanka will be playing two warm up matches at Worsley Bridge Rd (pictured above) for the ICC Champions Trophy which takes place next month. They face Scotland on Sunday and next Tuesday in 50 over games starting at 10-45am. Free entry.
Message from Ben Howard, LBB Traffic Officer
SGN have emergency gas works in Rectory Road, Beckenham at the junction with Blakeney Road.
Works are related to a broken gas main which is leaking and works started early this morning (Monday 15/05/2017). SGN are managing their works under temporary three way traffic signals.
LBB have requested extended hours of working and SGN will be manually operating their lights between 07:00-19:00 to minimise delays as much as possible.
SGN are aware of the major works currently going ahead in Beckenham High Street and we foresee works going on until the later part of this week, depending on the severity of repair.
LBB will send out an update on SGN’s progress tomorrow/Wednesday.
Bromley Concert Band are performing at Croydon Rd Receation Ground, Beckenham (pictured below) @ 3pm this afternoon. Free admission. For more information, please go to http://www.becrec.net
