Public meeting about Duncombe Hill Green development

Where is the meeting being held?

I’m told it’s inside the fence on the hill

I’m advised the event posted on the Facebook group page will have more info as the event gets closer.

Mods. Have posts been deleted?

I removed three posts (two of them mine) regarding Facebook group permissions, as the issue was resolved (I was added to the FB group) and thus the posts became off-topic.

If you’re keeping an eye on this, please share updates back here for the benefit of the many people not on Facebook. Ta!

If you’re unable to attend in person, the meeting will be live streamed on the group’s Facebook page.

The developers have called off the meeting. :frowning:

Update. It looks as if the developer has conceded to meet a small group of people to discuss concerns. But it will not be a public meeting. No doubt further information and a report of that meeting will appear on the FB group and on Twitter.

And one would hope on here as well.

Feel free to ask the group admins.

What I meant is hope you can report on it here for the other interested members who may not all be on other social media.

I’m doing bits and pieces. But my point is there is a whole lot of content on the FB page.

Why would you want to direct everyone from here to Facebook? Don’t you think Zuckerberg has enough cash?

The people who have been getting the community involved in this issue, who have started petitions, spoken to the council, contacted the developer etc have decided they want to use Facebook for their campaign. If you don’t want to use Facebook that’s your personal decision but not sure It’s for anyone else to tell them where to run their campaign. They are not an official group, just a bunch of people trying to do something good for the local community.

With respect, no one was trying to tell the organisers where to run the campaign. And no one criticised the organisers. They’ve done a fantastic job.

@Londondrz just questioned the above posts diverting SE23.life members away from this forum and onto Facebook.

He encouraged information to be re-shared by Starman on here instead, to ensure the organisers’ reach is maximised.

SE23.life conversation is visible and searchable on the open web, and also re-shared onto social media networks (Twitter, Facebook, Nextdoor etc) to ensure it’s accessible to as many of the local community as possible.

The group is publicly available on Facebook for anybody interested who has a Facebook account: https://www.facebook.com/groups/SaveDuncombeHillGreen/

I love seeing lots of different ways to engage with people. This particular Facebook group has almost 200 members including the mayor of Lewisham. Plus they have managed to engage 5,000 people through a petition (that’s a lot of work). I would encourage others to join their group if they are interested in supporting them and engaging with the group.

Perhaps that’s an issue for another thread?

I have been sharing information. But there is a huge amount of info as to make copying untenable. I am not steering people away. I am steering people to. In the same way I steered people to the Forest Hill sign campaign. It’s always been about supporting a community led campaign be people in the community. I’m sorry you missed that.

As for this last post. I understand John Hamilton is not part of the Save Duncombe Hill campaign. I also understand the developer is meeting both campaigns at the same time.

As my effort seems unnecessary perhaps Chris you can keep sharing info as I understand you’re a member of that group too.
