Our Association says NO to Pavement Tax!

The September meeting of BRSVA members of our committee were united in condemning plans by Greenwich Council to introduce a "Street Trading Licence" which has been dubbed the Pavement Tax by other Community and campaigning organisations.

Raising the Standard

The area known as The Blackheath Royal Standard, is one of the oldest and a pleasant part of  Royal Greenwich.  Sadly, however, in recent years, it has missed out on attention and amenities while other parts of the borough have not.  Local people have a real pride and affection for where they live and feel it is time that Greenwich Council also took an interest - go to Eltham, East Greenwich, Mottingham, Charlton or central old Greenwich and you will see flower beds, troughs of flowers by the roadsides and many plants that make the area look very attractive. Sadly these flower baskets and troughs, as well as the new 'Royal Borough' street signs, have not made their way to the Blackheath Royal Standard yet, which is a real shame but a mistake that can be easily and quickly corrected!
