There is a new developement going up on Westbourne terrace at the moment. I don't suppose anyone knows what it's going to be? I recall getting something from the Council saying that someone had applied for planning permission to build there but I can't remember what it said. Does anyone else know anything more?

Also, as someone who has not posted on here before but who has been reading the forum for quite some time, I'd just to say how much I enjoy reading all your posts - they're a really interesting and entertaining way to find out more about the area.

(But they've also given me a lot a class-envy and resentment about the fact that I live on the wrong side of the tracks and not in UDB but I'll save that for a future post!)

Hello Robert,

I live on "this side" of the tracks as well ( I have the decided not say wrong anymore when I refer to it) but I don t know anything about the development I am afraid. I am sure we will soon be enlightned by another forum member.

In the mean time, did you manage to read the Forum conversation concerning the creation of a Forest Hill Society ? Would you be interested in participating by maybe telling us your views or attending our first meeting? This would enable you to learn even more about your local area and would give you a chance to make it a better place......who knows, one day we may able to say that we live in the best side....

Hi Millesens

Thanks for your message. I have read the thread about the creation of a Forest Hill Society and I think it would be a really great idea.

Unfortunately, I don't think I'd have time for much active involvement as I work very long hours and I'm always cancelling social arrangements because "I have to work late" (the joys of wage slavery!). I don' think I would be the most reliable member!
