Affogato closes while it seeks planning approval to serve food
The Affogato coffee shop at 1457 London Road has had to close because it has not got planning permission to serve food. It has now submitted a planning application (17/01615/GPDO). See below. It does raise the question of why the Council has made it close while still allowing the Havanas to remain open in breach of anti-smoking laws
Mr H. Qureshie of the business has emailed to say that this is no accurate.
The new Portuguese deli that is opening up in the form Temptations shop at 1451 London Road has applied for a licence to sell alcohol on and off premises between 10am and 10pm Monday to Sunday. The notice appears in the window but wine bottles are already being put on shelves before a licence has been granted. The Council tells me that display does not need a licence.
Its application can be seen here:
Fire on 3rd floor of Anderson Heights
Six fire engines and 35 firefighters and officers battled a fire in a third floor flat in Anderson Heights on London Rd. 100 residents have to be evacuated.
The Council is about to implement the small CPZ extensions in the area of Bishops Park and Abingdon Rds. It you live in the streets affected and want to see the documents that are supposed to be delivered to the affected residents please email ne at email@example.com as the Council officers have provided me with a set in computer file format.
Views on Transport
ComRes (CommunicateResearch Ltd) is conducting a survey of local authority ‘stakeholders on behalf of Transport for London (TfL). TfL wants to understand Councillors transport priorities, what you think of their transport services and communications with local authorities, and how these can be improved. Councillors are being asked to complete a survey. If you have any views about what Norbury Councillors should say then you can email Cllr Maggie Mansell at firstname.lastname@example.org
