The new Labour Administration intend on spending £1.5million to make the whole of Croydon a 20mph zone.
Croydon Conservatives are launching a petition which is not taking a view for or against these proposals (that's for the people who live in each area to decide), but believes the people of Croydon should be consulted in a way that best represents local geography and community identity.
The current consultation model uses five zones to decide the policy around Croydon. We believe that individual roads should have a say on their own individual speed limits.
At present, a decision made by residents in New Addington would affect those in Croham. A decision made by people on Purley Way, would control what happens in Coulsdon. Those living in Croydon town centre would dictate the speed of roads in Norbury. Sanderstead village would be split into two, with one road potentially having a different speed limit to the next.
We believe that this is wrong and cannot accurately reflect the views of the Croydon people.
We the undersigned believe Croydon residents should have a direct say on whether or not their individual roads should have a 20mph speed limit, which is not the current plan of the new Labour administration.
The petition say "We the undersigned request that roads and not zones are consulted on when Croydon Council contacts residents about their 20mph speed limit policy across Croydon.". You can sign it here.
