Thank you to everyone who's signed and shared so far. Live music venues are necessary for a town to expand on its culture, especially ones as supportive and catering to musicians and locals like The Iron Horse. Although the pub is a bit part of it, this concerns Sidcup as a whole. There definitely is a need for affordable homes, but they're already being built in the area with more yet to come, and some of our green spaces including Old Farm Park have been sacrificed for it.
How is it okay to overpopulate an area at the expense of the few things left to do here? Sidcup won't have any identity left, it'll be nothing more than a place to pass through to get to London.
There is an opposing petition to allow the flats, which unsurprisingly has reached 19 signatures in a month. Our petition has 544 at the time of writing, not only from those passionate about music but locals who rely on the station area. If you keep spreading the word and sharing this, our voices will be heard.
