6 December (Part 2) - Abbey Wood. Welcome to the rubbish tip

Harrow InnI think it may have been my councillor Danny Hackett who told me that after putting up with a rat infested eyesore where the Harrow Inn used to be for five years, Bexley council had served an enforcement order on the land owner, or rather their administrators because the property company which planned to build on it has gone bust.

I could be wrong because I don’t seem to have any email confirmation but on the other hand I do speak to him face to face occasionally - but only when Deputy Director Paul Moore isn’t looking because that idiot told Danny he shouldn’t speak to me, his ward resident!

Danny’s colleague councillor John Husband recently said that the site administrators had promised to clean the site up yesterday but if they did there is no very obvious sign of it. Less of the green plastic draped around the site may be falling over but the site itself is as bad as ever.

The plans to build flats on the site have been put on ice “because [Bexley planning] officers have concerns over the viability of the proposed redevelopment”.

Abbey Wood is condemned to be the eternal rubbish dump.
