Below you will find a brief update of the important points from the KVRA committee meeting that took place on Wednesday 25 May.
We were pleased that Cllrs Carr and Michael were able to join us it is always helpful as the Cllrs are able to update on the latest information from the Council and often take issues forward for us.
Traffic calming measures in Heathfield Rd
- Cllr Carr told us that the first step in looking at the possibility of getting something installed was for the Council to undertake a consultation exercise and write to the residents of Heathfield Rd. He said that he would begin that process by talking to the appropriate Officers the following day. Once the consultation starts, please be sure to copy KVRA on your comments to LBB. This will enable us to be aware of the strength of residents views.
Biggin Hill airport
-There is no news on the Judicial Review process although Cllr Carr informed the Committee that the papers had been transferred from Manchester, where the review had been lodged, to London and in his view there was not going to be a case. David Clapham did not agree with this view and so we still await further news. For further information, please see www.flightpathwatch.co.uk .
The LBB Executive will consider the responses from Biggin Hill Airport to all the recommendations included as conditions by LBB at the meeting in the Civic Centre at 7pm on Wednesday 15th June 2016. The report under consideration can be found on the following link: http://cds.bromley.gov.uk/ieListDocuments.aspx?CId=121&MId=5760&Ver=4 Attendance at this important meeting will show your support.
There will be a chance for local residents to visit the centre at 7.30pm on 31st May 2016. See enclosed invitation flyer.
Mobile phone mast
Cllr Michael is in contact with vodafone regarding the possible alternative siting for a mast at Holwood, outside the boundary of the scheduled ancient monument.
We look forward to seeing as many residents as possible at the AGM on Wednesday 1 June at 8pm in the Village Hall.
