Action on Bridle Road Black-Spot

A Petition to Croydon Council has been created calling for urgent action on major accident black-spot heading from the bend in Bridle Road, outside All Saints Church.

Five major accidents have occurred last year alone, with numerous others over the past 20 years, with excessive speed believed to be a significant factor, putting the lives of pedestrians and other motorists at risk of serious injury and death.

Please do share this online petition with friends and neighbours:

1,000 signatures are required by the end of February, to ensure it’s added to the agenda for the April 2017 Croydon Council meeting, so this important issue can be debated.

 

Thank you for your support.

Council keeps quiet about its plans…again

Dear #SaveShirley resident,

I’m sure like us you feel in the dark about what’s going on after we all joined forces to let the Council know how we felt about their disastrous plans for Shirley.

It was around this time last year we got wind of their plans and rallied support to respond to their ‘consultation’, something they were hoping would go under the radar.

So, we suppose it will be no surprise to hear they are up to their old tricks. Only this time we have learnt they are planning to ignore the 4,000 objections Shirley residents made in October to oppose the plans.

The Council is intending to rubber stamp Croydon Local Plan (CLP2) at this Monday’s Full Council Meeting – that’s right Monday 5 December. There’s a reason why they’ve not informed us residents who these plans will affect for many years to come.

We’re intending to turn up and let Councillor Butler know that we’re still not happy with her plans. Plans that she never consulted with us, even though she agreed publicly to hold a meeting with Shirley residents.

This will be another opportunity to show the Council the strength of feeling in our community about some of the policies within that plan before it goes to the planning inspectorate.

We know many of you have attended previous meetings on this subject and I hope many of you will feel it appropriate to attend once more.

Here are the details of the meeting (arrive at 6.15pm Mon 5 Dec):

The Council Chamber
Town Hall
Katharine Street
Croydon
CR0 1NX

SaveShirley – Council meeting Monday 17 October 2016

Please come and support us at the Council meeting on Monday night (17th Oct).

Once again, we need to pack the public gallery with residents as we enter the final stages of the ongoing battle we’re having with the council over the Croydon Local Plan (CLP) and the devastating effect it will have on our local area.

We will again be making our objections to the Council, as this is our last chance to object to these policies, which if implemented, will have a serious and detrimental effect on Shirley over the coming years.

If you haven’t yet put your objection in to the revised local plan, you can use our template: http://www.mo-ra.co/urgent-croydon-local-plan-clp-objection-letter-template/ (Note: Objections must be received by the council before midnight 17th Oct 2016).

We’re not done yet and neither is the Council, if they get away with this then they’ll be back for more of our green spaces, back gardens and will knock down more houses to put blocks of flats in their place.

We will be meeting outside the Council Chamber at 6pm.

Here are the details of the meeting:

The Council Chamber
Town Hall
Katharine Street
Croydon
CR0 1NX

6.00pm: Meet outside council chamber.
6.30pm: Council Meeting starts.
The Croydon Debate is Agenda item 7.
