  1. Tessa Pope says:

    As a resident in Lakes Rd , I strongly object to the proposed extension to a 2nd bulge class being allowed at Keston Primary School, and as for a full double size extension for another 200 children is beyond belief. At the moment the residents in Lakes Rd know it is impossible to get anywhere to park between 2.50 and 3.40 which means if we come home at this time we have to go elsewhere till the road is clear.Also on a personal level when I was having treatment at St.Thomas!s hospital the ambulance bringing me to and fro at times had to drive off and return when the road was clear is this acceptable.In an emergency situation what would happen , there is a community bus that collects and drops old people in this road and they have to be taken to the door

  2. Laurence Pierce says:

    I am in full agreement with Tessa, we have already had Coney Hall Primary School double in size, we have had the large housing development on Bromley Common, and Biggin Hill Airport seems to just grown bigger and bigger.

    The end result is I now live in a small village, on a very narrow lane (Fox Lane) and the speed as well as the amount of traffic has increased FAR to much

    If the Keston school doubles in size, I am certain that the entrance to Lakes Road will grid lock, and remember that Heathfiled road is the gateway to the ever growing Airport as well as getting to the M25 (Shire Lane)

    So as far as I can see, Bromley council seem adamant to just keep adding development.
    There is a difference between “not in my back yard ” and what is feasible

    Next stop, will be just bung a nice dual carriage way right down Heathfiled Road, and add a few Jumbo jets to Biggin Hill
