Metal Erection

Metal ErectionMy thanks to Colin, who sent me this photo of the back of his house today. As you can see he has had a very large metal erection stuck on the back of his house by his neighbour, courtesy of a rather bizarre planning approval given by Croydon Council.

Colin has spent the best part of a year trying to get this ugly carbuncle removed.

As yet, to no avail.

A Pile of Rubble III

Those of you who are regular visitors to this site, will doubtless be familiar with that little eyesore on St James's Road known as The Pile of Rubble.

I received a letter yesterday from Phoenix Logistics, who own the site.

They are progressing with their plans to redevelop it, and are holding a second exhibition on 11 December and 13 December at the Scout Hut, 113 St James's road Croydon.

Where they will be displaying their plans for the site. They plan to build 184 apartments on the site.

Good luck to them, I hope that the site is redeveloped as soon as possible.
