OLD ST PAULS CRAY VILLAGE RESIDENTS SOCIETY
Meeting held on 04/05/17
1 ST PAULS CRAY PARK. Dog walkers are still being intimidated by quad bike users. This usually occurs in the afternoons/evenings particularly at weekends. The police are aware of the situation and have apprehended visitors from afar away as Essex who, not being prepared to give address, have had their bikes confiscated. With access from Hockenden over the farmers fields the situation will not be remedied by Bromley council continuously replacing the Star Lane entrance gates.
2 FIX MY STREET. Residents with Internet access are recommended to use www.fixmystreet.com to report any problems, which they consider need attention. This is an independent website who “harass” Bromley Council into executing
3 LEESONS HILL/SEVENOAKS WAY. The revised traffic light system has, all bar minor works in connection with a burst water main in Station Road (WHICH SHOULD COMMENCE SHORTLY), been implemented.
4 WASTE 4 FUEL Bromley Council have purchased the site and access road and, in coordination with the Environmental office, HAVE COMMENCED to clear the site. However due to the amount exceeding expectations Bromley Council are awaiting extra funding from the Environment Office.
5. HOMEBASE. The problem of parked cars on the Orpington side of the approach road (from The Bull) to the recently installed traffic lights is causing queuing confusion for those intending to turn left. Possible provision of additional yellow lines being investigated. The island preventing no more than two cars waiting to turn right from Sevenoaks Way into Main Road will be removed - and the pedestrian crossing altered in the near future.
