  • Please can you advise when this work will be undertaken. My understanding is that the contractor attending some weeks ago but was unable to do the job because of parked traffic. This will always be the case unless traffic is prevented from parking so please advise how you will action this. Thx

  • Hi - thank you for calling me this morning and providing an update - unfortunately I couldn’t take your call as I was on another one. I fully understand you may not be able to dictate to the contractor in terms of timing. My concern though is that even when they turn up they won’t do the job - as this is what happened - because of parked cars. This must have cost Bromley council money and It is very likely there will always be parked cars so will happen again unless they plan ahead and block the space. It is this that I am asking about. Many thx.
