  • This has been reported a few times but the report just gets closed without any action being taken. Are the grass verges going to be repaired and the perished tree saplings replanted?

  • Destruction of the grass verge by Maybrey Works Construction vehicles continues unabated - without any enforcement by the Council. Perhaps the Council would like to explain to Bromley Taxpayers exactly why they refuse to take any enforcement action against this Contractor. Note that it is NOT down to Bromley Taxpayers to finance the restitution of this area, this remains the Contractors cost.

  • The grass verges outside Montana Gardens are turning into a muddy parking lot by the heavy utility vehicles from Maybrey works without any consideration to the residents. Multiple representations to the contractors and the Council have yielded zero results. Could the Council please look at installing wooden bollards and double yellow line restriction as done on the other side of the road.

  • When the Development Planning Application was submitted, it included confirmation of residents concerns regarding construction traffic entering & exiting the site. The application CONFIRMED that ALL deliveries etc would be via an in/out system whereby vehicles entered one gate, and exited the other. This HAS NOT been the case, hence the continual damage to the grass verge

  • This is NOT a closed issue, but remains very much a LIVE one. This area of grass verge continues to be suffer further damage as the Building Contractor COPNTINUES to permit HGV's etc to either park on this verge, or use it as a turning point. NOTE: It IS NOT down to Bromley taxpayers to FUND the repair and restoration of this area, but for the COUNCIL to ENFORCE the Contractor to do so - at HIS cost. However, this weak and lily-skinned Council will just let the issue continue until the Contractor has departed.
