Illegal Business Riverdale Road

Sent to Royal Borough of Greenwich less than a minute later

The mechanic business based of Riverdale and Saunders Road is STILL operating on the public footpath/highway causing an obstruction and illegal works. This is totally unacceptable as you’re by now aware as I have reported this numerous times and I have asked you to deal with the issue.
