Working with the Community

Welcome to our website. We are a residents' society covering an area of 1500 house­holds of which nearly 500 are subscribing members. Our objective is to maintain and enhance the en­viron­ment, to promote a sense of community and to generally improve the area for the benefit of residents.


We have just been advised of two important consultations:-

1) Changes to parking in Crab Hill, Ravensmead Road and Ravensbourne Avenue

Please see the consultation here. Replies must be received by Bromley by 27 January 2020. Broadly, we are happy with the proposals (but would welcome further input from Members - contact us here) but we remain concerned that:-

a) there are no pedestrian refuges proposed to help pedestrians cross Crab Hill or Ravensbourne Avenue near Ravensmead Road; and

b) there are no proposed methods to mitigate the high speeds on Crab Hill which occur when commuter parking does not reduce the width of the road and thus slow traffic.

2) Proposal to make it an offence to be in control of more than 4 dogs in public

Please see consultation here. Replies must be received by Bromley by 5 February 2020.

Members may wish to comment about whether the number of dogs being controlled by owners should be limited.

Please copy to us here any response you make to the Council on either consultation.

Barbara Brown RIP

We are very sad to announce the death on 14 December 2019 of long-standing RVR member Barbara Brown. Barbara was a valued and well-known member of RVR and the local community and will be sadly missed. The funeral is on Thursday 23 January 2020 12.30 at Beckenham Crematorium.


Change of name of the society

At our AGM on 7 March 2019, we agreed to change our name from ‘Ravensbourne Valley Preservation Society’ to ‘Ravensbourne Valley Residents’. We are in the process of changing our records to reflect this.
