18 January (Part 3) - Just a slum

Fence Fence The last time the notorious Harrow Inn fence was featured here I felt I was probably wasting my time and yours because Bexley council is beyond shame. However someone who lives very near to the site may be more hopeful.

A councillor told him “the more fuss we make the better”. After more than five years of faffing about that councillor really is an optimist.

The official Bexley council line (email 14th January) is that the problem is caused by “the weather and vandalism”. Can you believe that? In Abbey Wood in winter both are pretty much inevitable. That's why Crossrail, Cross Quarter and English Heritage have all erected proper fences no more than a quarter of a mile away.

The council says it cannot take enforcement action because it would mean going to court. Where does Bexley council get these people from? They’ve been quick enough to go to court over relatively trivial matters in the past. But they lost that personal vendetta so maybe they have become chicken now.
