The area around Shooters Hill parade of shops is neglected and underinvested

The area behind is unpaved and attracts antisocial behaviour. Fly-tipped rubbish builds up continually.

On the street side the paving is in a terrible state and dangerous to pedestrians. The council has completely neglected the area for decades.

Kidbrooke deserves better!

It is beyond dispute that large buildings change the areas that they are constructed in. The area targeted by this development is comprised of low-rise/mid-rise buildings and open areas that will be harmed by the establishment of a cluster of skyscraper buildings. In particular, the levels of daylight at lower levels of accommodation will be negatively affected, which […]
