2 Berther Road:

The application for a single storey rear and side extension on ground floor and Change of use of first floor to A4 use class (Drinking establishments) was refused by the Council on 7 July. Now a new, similar, application has been submitted for Change of use of first floor to mixed use A3/A4 use class (Restaurant/Cafe and Drinking establishment) and also includes a single storey rear infill extension and part demolition of rear store and erection of entrance porch. We have received a request from the Havering Residents’ Assn. to help them object. We had previously objected to the new application and gave the HRA a copy of our letter of objection to help them.

68 Nelmes Way:

Application for outline planning permission for demolition of the existing residential unit and erection of 4 new residential units. We have not been contacted by any local resident and have not objected, but RR has queried the application. The Council’s decision was due on 29 December but has still not been decided.

Policing Matters

Computer Scam BEWARE

logoMPS (2)

 

Recently a member of the EPAGRA  committee  received a phone call purporting to come from BT who informed them they had a problem with their internet access. They told the caller that their account was not in fact with BT but another internet provider.

The response was that BT owned the cables that provided the internet and if the member did not buy  a piece of software they would have their internet cut off and they would be blacklisted by the internet companies.

The committee member  very sensibly hung up and did not agree to anything.

BEWARE THIS IS A SCAM  AND ALL THESE PEOPLE WANT TO DO IS TO SELL YOU A PIECE OF SOFTWARE YOU DO NOT NEED.
