Brick by Brick Action – Group Protest on 26th March 2018

We have been asked to share this by Brick by Brick Action:

“A Protest is to be held at the Town Hall, Catherine Street, Croydon Town Centre at 5 for 5.30pm on Monday 26th March 2018. Please all come along and support the local communities who are being torn apart and devastated by the proposed new builds programme. We are protesting against the Planning Department pushing through all BbB’s plans regardless, against the taking of green areas, parking places and children’s play areas. We are asking that they use brown field land and empty offices to turn into housing instead. Also to make all new housing council properties only. Not for sale or unaffordable ‘affordable’ housing but council owned properties that the homeless and overcrowded families can live in.”

“Brick by Brick Action are a collection of residents, organisations and interested parties that are sick of the actions of Brick by Brick across the London Borough of Croydon.

We are not affiliated to any political party or company, we just want something done about the actions of a Company that is solely owned by the Council and is ruining our area with badly planned building schemes that are proposed and approved by a husband and wife team with no regard to the wishes and ideas of those affected.

If you have been affected by Brick by Brick schemes, please feel free to join us, and maybe we can do something about it.”

MORA AGM 2017 Thank you

It was great to see our MORA members out in force for our 93rd AGM that took place at Edenham High School on Tuesday 25 April 2017.

In a break with previous AGMs we kicked the evening off with a live performance from Zayn Raja, Deputy Head Boy and finished with a raffle at the end.

Thank you to all our members and guests who attended and contributed to the lively hour of debate at the end on planning issues that are facing us who live here in Shirley.

We’ve had some great feedback and have been approached by residents wanting to get more involved, which is great and there is plenty to be done.

Invited guests included Cllr Paul Scott, Chair of Croydon Council Planning Committee, Shirley & Ashburton councillors and Gavin Barwell MP.

We’re delighted you enjoyed the presentations from MORA. And for those of you that missed it, there are some pictures below. We’ll be publishing more details in our Summer Magazine. Don’t miss it.
