Warning message from the Coulsdon East Safer Neighbourhood Police
03/03/2017 14:55:00......Posted by Margaret Bird

Amicus Horizon have made us aware of a potential scam and we would like you aware of it.

Two males wearing Amicus Horizon identification knocked on a door in nearby Caterham and stated “we are taking possession of your property” due to the rent arrears and hand delivered a letter.

No visit had been organised by Income or Housing Management teams and the letter would have been delivered via first class post before any visit.

If this happens to you or any vulnerable neighbours then please contact Amicus Horizons to verify the visit. If in doubt then please call police.

Legislation on disposal of empty paint cans
16/03/2017 10:02:00.......Posted by Margaret Bird

Empty paint tins or those containing dried paint can still be taken to the Household Reuse and Recycling Centres, however wet paint is now classed as hazardous waste and the site licenses do not currently permit this.  Residents can book a free paint collection from their home via the City of London, details of which can be found here:  https://www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/hazardouswaste.

 

The Council has been as been asked to  include  collection points at  Household Reuse and  Recycling  depots and and they are looking into  doing this.

20mph consultation
06/02/2017 13:58:00.......Posted by Margaret Bird

Several residents from the top end of Mead Way have said they have ot received their consultation letter from the Council on the 20mph blanket proposal.

Coulsdon East Councillors have been letting the Council know of indivdual residents addresses when we have been contacted but given the number for this road Cllr Margaret Bird asked the Council to re-deliver the whole road but they have refused.

If you have not received your letter and want to comment please go online to www.croydon.gov.uk/20mph and quote reference PD/CH/A63. ​You can also comment on the other two areas currently being consulted on.

Blanket 20mph proposal
15/01/2017 13:37:00.......Posted by Margaret Bird

Dear Coulsdon East resident,

The Council have a policy to introduce 20mph on all roads across the Borough with the only exception being arterial roads such as Coulsdon Road and Marlpit Lane.

There is a Council Consultation starting on January 18th to February 15th https://www.croydon.gov.uk/transportandstreets/roadsafety/20mph-areas-for-residential-roads/south-west-croydon-%E2%80%93-area-5-proposal

with a leaflet being delivered to each house. This is a different method of consultation from that carried out in the north of the borough. You will be responding as Zone 5 (Coulsdon, Kenley, Purley, Sanderstead and Waddon).

Do you want this blanket approach?

As local Councillors we are fully supportive of

Residents who have requested a lower speed limit in roads such as Woodplace Lane where speeding has caused accidents.

Of 20mph outside of schools or near to elderly care homes

But we do not believe a blanket approach is in the interest of residents.

* At low speeds pollution is greater

* 20mph increases journey times and generally causes congestion

* The Police have said at Scrutiny on 20mph zones that they would not enforce it

* Pedestrians have a false sense of security

* Present school zones will lose their 20mph significance

* A majority of accidents occur on major roads which are not to be covered

* This scheme will not prevent inconsiderate and bad drivers who are the cause of many accidents.

And the cost……£300,000 to implement just our Zone and £1,500,000 for the whole scheme at a time when services are being cut.

To have your say you will need to respond to the consultation as non reply will be taken as acceptance of the scheme

Please let us know if you do not receive the information from the Council by January 25th or if you have any questions.

 

If you object you must email objections@croydon.gov.uk quoting PD/CH/A63

 

 


 

Christmas Lights in Old Coulsdon
24/11/2016 19:12:00.......Posted by Margaret Bird

Last Christmas Old Coulsdon was bereft of Christmas Lights as they were no longer supplied by Croydon Council so Cllr. Margaret Bird spoke to shopkeepers on Tudor Parade and found they were as disappointed as she was. At the beginning of 2016 she invited all those to a meeting and CLOCFG - Christmas Lights in Old Coulsdon was born. We hoped to raise enough to  have 4-6 lampposts lit up.

Thanks to the residents fantastic response to the fundraising we have managed 13 on Tudor Parade and thanks to the Councillors Community fund a further 5 on Lacey Green Parade.

Lacey Green Parade  will be switched on before  4pm prior to Tudor Parade carol singing at 4pm and their lights at 4.30pm.

Father Christmas has promised to come too if his schedule allows.......!

All welcome
