Final comments sought on #Croydon Local Plan up to 17 October

 

thumb_dsc01153_1024

The Croydon Local Plan sets out how the borough can thrive and grow to meet future increasing demand. It details how many new homes the borough needs, how the infrastructure such as roads, schools and medical facilities need to change, and what jobs and employment opportunities are required to support local communities in each of the borough’s 16 places.

Last winter’s consultation saw over 8,000 people respond, helping planners to shape the plan to its proposed submission stage. Residents can make any final comments on the proposed submission. All responses will be sent to the Planning Inspectorate to be considered as part of the public examination of the Plan. The final Plan will then go before the council in the winter for approval for submission to the secretary of state. More information about the Local Plan programme can be found here.

The Local Plan documents can be viewed at www.croydon.gov.uk/localplanone and www.croydon.gov.uk/localplantwo, at all Croydon libraries and at Access Croydon in Bernard Weatherill House. Residents can have their say on the proposed submission by visiting the council’s Get Involved site at www.getinvolved.croydon.gov.uk

  1. SURREY STREET MARKET I am aghast at some of the changes brought about by Mary Portas and Boris Johnson in cahoots with Croydon Council.  People were urged to set upstalls in the market with huge inducements.  I understand Mary Portas wanted it to become a “clothes hub” and a “food hub”. Just as we are being exhorted to eat more fruit and veg, they want to bring in scented candles and barbecued jerk chicken!  We have had enough of this street eating.  We have had enough of scented candles.   Has anybody suffered a coughing fit as I have due to the dark sticky smoke that is around the market?  We don’t want any more takeaway food.  We have enough of it thank you very much.This is not Shoreditch.  It is East Croydon.We are more boot sale than box park.  And we ought to be glad of that.  Miriam Heyburn
