The statutory consultation follows on from a report to Croydon Council’s Traffic Management Committee on 5 July 2017. This recommended that the Cabinet Member for Transport and Environment should:

  1. Consider the responses to the informal consultation from local residents.
  2. Agree to proceed with the Statutory (formal) Consultation for the introduction of a short section of one way working with pedal cycle bypass in Addiscombe Court Road and Canning Road.
  3. Report any objections to the statutory consultation to a future meeting of the TMAC for their consideration and decision

The informal consultation had asked residents of the area bounded by Cherry Orchard Rd, Lower Addiscombe Rd, Ashburton Rd and Addiscombe Rd, plus some roads to the south, to answer yes or no to the questions below. 780 out of 4,480 people returned their questionnaires and the results were as follows

  1. Do you support the Councils plans to introduce no-entry restrictions on Addiscombe Court Road? 41% Yes, 59% No
  2. Do you support the Councils plans to introduce no-entry restrictions on Canning Road? 31% Yes, 69% No
  3. Would you support the Councils plans to introduce no-entry restrictions on Addiscombe Court Road if Canning Road was made no-entry? 
32% Yes, 68% No
  4. Would you support the Councils plans to introduce no-entry restrictions on Canning Road if Addiscombe Court Road was made no-entry? 30% Yes, 70% No

The full report, including a more detailed breakdown of these results can be found in the report (item 5)
