The Royal Borough wardens were out and about in Wilton Road, Abbey Wood
again today and the photo below (taken from the @loveabbeywood Twitter feed) shows
Greenwich police (note the RG shoulder flash) out and about too - on the wrong side of the borough border.
It’s beginning to look as though Bexley Council is not very interested in Wilton Road (what’s new) but Greenwich Council will be keen not to see a repeat of what happened under similar circumstances in Plumstead. Its residents established a a rival political party.
There has been a persistent rumour over the past 36 hours that Wilton Road will be graced by a visit by the great and the good on Thursday. Whether it is true or not remains to be seen.
I contacted the MP and Councillor Hackett (Bexley Lesnes Abbey) to see if they were aware of the details but neither knew anything about it.
If the visit happens it will be further confirmation that the problems commonly seen in Wilton Road are being ‘owned’ by Greenwich Council but don’t forget who it was who decided things down there were getting out of hand and stirred the hornet’s next; it was Danny.
Maybe the Greenwich Councillors have one big advantage over Councillor Hackett when it comes to inspecting Wilton Road, no one will modify their behaviour because no one will know who they are.
