Eliot Pitstopped

Just got an email from the office of Sir Steve (Lewisham’s mayor). Looks like they won’t be building a children’s play area in Eliot Pits after all:

The Preliminary Ecological Appraisal report recently undertaken by The Ecology Consultancy for Eliot Pits has now been received.
The Council’s Ecological Regeneration Manager has reviewed the report and given that the proposal will likely have “significant ecological impact” has recommended that this option is not pursued.
I imagine that further details will be available soon, but given your concerns I am sending you this information at the earliest opportunity following Sir Steve’s request that you are kept fully updated.

  1. As much as I’d like to see a decent play area for children somewhere in the area, Eliot Pits really isn’t the place for it.

    It’s time to dig up those plans for extending the bridge by the train station from a few years ago . Would make a nice play area…

    • Do you know, I’ve often thought about that, and how different the economic outlook is now compared to then, back when we had a proper library. In retrospect it looks like a missed opportunity, and in retrospect I think I shouldn’t have criticised the plans.

    well done to everyone who helped stop Eliot Pits being developed – and thank you :)
