Spring is here! The MORA Spring 2017 Magazine is on its way to our Road Stewards for delivery to our members. Look out for it coming through your door over the next week or so.
Also a reminder to save the date for Tuesday 25th April 2017 7PM in your diary. It’s the MORA 2017 AGM event and we hope to you see there. We have lots to update you on.
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.
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):
