Carriageway Resurfacing on The Glade 12 & 13 August

FMCONWAY, on behalf of Croydon Council, will be commencing resurfacing works on:

The Glade from 12th to 13th August between the hours of 20:00-05:00.

The resurfacing works will take place between Starling Close and Property No: 13.

To enable the Contractor to undertake the works, on-street parking will be suspended during works hours (19.00 – 05.00). Please note these suspensions will stay in place until gully cleansing is completed. No parking for residents on the highway in the areas covered by the enforcement signs.

Please note that penalty charge notices (PCN’s) will be applied to vehicles parked within the suspended areas during the works hours and/or vehicles relocated. Due to the above we would urge all residents to ensure that their vehicles are moved from the suspended areas in order to avoid any delays to the works as well as incurring any charges.

Pedestrian access will not be affected.

Information boards will be in place before the works commence, advising of the precise dates and times of the road closure.

Please however note that unforeseen circumstances (e.g. inclement weather conditions) may necessitate a change to the scheduled dates and information on road signs will be changed accordingly. Please check the road signs regularly for any updates.

Due to the nature of these works it is inevitable that some disruption will occur. For this reason it is recommended that where possible you use alternative routes, or allow extra time to complete your journey.

DEMOC Campaign Update

With just 100 days to go until Croydon goes to the polls on 7 October, the momentum around a democratically-elected mayor is gathering pace.

Thousands of Croydon residents have viewed our video setting out the need for a Croydon mayor, while households across the borough have received a leaflet, thanks to our growing team of volunteers.

DEMOC, the resident-led Campaign for a Democratically Elected Mayor of Croydon, is focussed on building a bright, positive future for the borough. A mayor offers a fresh start and an opportunity for Croydon to fulfil its potential. However, the campaign also acknowledges that the current state of Croydon’s governance and financial management is difficult to ignore.

Gerry Meredith-Smith, DEMOC’s chair, said: “Every week there are yet more revelations and allegations about the mishandling of the Council’s affairs – and it’s us, the residents of the borough, who suffer. Services for some of the most vulnerable in the borough – children, the elderly, those with complex needs – are already being scaled back. It’s shameful. Croydon deserves better. We deserve proper leadership, proper transparency around decision-making, and proper respect. That’s what a democratically-elected mayor can give us.”

In just 100 days, Croydon residents will have the opportunity to shape the borough’s future. If you would like to get involved with the campaign, get in touch at DEMOCInfo@democ.org.uk and follow us on Facebook
