In case you missed it The Bromley Times front page features High Street Penge and the rubbish issue – See the picture in the article!
We have been pressing for a solution for several years now as the piles of black bags and discarded rubbish continue to litter our high street.
Too many flat conversions have been permitted above High Street shops without including any facilities for rubbish storage. We have been successful in addressing this problem via the LBB planning department which now ensures all new conversions include bin storage areas.
Residents have had enough and have launched a petition – link below:
We will continue to work with LBB to come up with a solution and as Penge has been awarded some of the Mayor’s New Homes Bonus money we and our Penge Traders had agreed that this issue is a priority and if necessary, we will use some of that money to ensure our High Street is transformed into a welcoming place to live and shop.
