Update: Teevan Road
The planning application for 20a Teevan Road has been approved. This is despite numerous objections, including both of our ward councillors. As the proposals were submitted using the Permitted Rights regulations, it would appear that Council planners were unable to reject them, although they have put some conditions on the build.
These plans were put forward during lockdown and were not widely advertised, and it is only through information from our members that we were able to bring them to the attention of a wider audience. If you hear of any proposals near you that you are concerned about do let us know.
Includes a directory of your local Addiscombe shops.
The BHRA was formed 35 years ago to give a voice to local people on issues that matter to them.
The BHRA Committee meets regularly to listen to local concerns and to plan social events, to which all members are invited.
Each road covered by the Association has a representative who is automatically on the committee to ensure that issues are raised and heard.
Recent Matters under discussion have inevitably been the Blackhorse Lane Bridge closure and is negative impact on local residents and local traders, and the newly refurbished Ashburton Hall.
The Association also writes regularly to the Council on issues such as fly-tipping, street lighting and traffic/parking, BHRA worked with the council on behalf of residents to limit the use of Tenterden Road, Pagehurst and Wydehurst for the numerous fun fairs, main entry is now via the new double gates at the front of Ashburton Park.
