Labour betrays Norbury residents over regeneration
 

Residents of Norbury have been denied over a million Pounds in investment towards public realm improvements in their district centre. Under plans drawn up by the previous Conservative administration, £1.1 million from the Mayor of London's Local Implementation Plan (LIP) funds, had been allocated to Norbury to improve the district centre, to get going this year. This would have included improved pavements, pedestrian access, cycling facilities, and general street scene improvements to the shopping parade, delivering much needed regeneration and improvements to the area. However, under plans to be approved at Monday's Cabinet meeting, the Labour Council voted to defer this investment in order to fund Labour's pet project of 20mph zones. Investment in South Norwood has also been delayed, for the same reason. Nobody can now be confident that these projects will ever happen.

Commenting on these plans, Cllr Vidhi Mohan, the Conservative parliamentary candidate for Croydon North and shadow cabinet member for transport and highways said, “This is a great betrayal of the people of Norbury and South Norwood. These important projects have been delayed and nobody could now put money on them happening at all. Labour talk big about investing in our district centres, but within months of coming power they have delayed, perhaps permanently, two major regeneration schemes.”
