Report on Croydon

Press release

Government confirms rapid review into London Borough of Croydon
Review will look into the council’s governance, culture and management of risk.

Update: Blackhorse Bridge

Morgan Sindall are in the process of developing the design for the water leak defect remedial works by the bridge abutments.  The current provisional date for commencement of the works to the north bridge is 7th Sept 2020. 


The approx. duration for the works is 2-3 weeks. A closure of the railway park will not be required as Morgan Sindall
will be working behind heras fencing.

Update: Teevan Road

The planning application for 20a Teevan Road has been approved. This is despite numerous objections, including both of our ward councillors. As the proposals were submitted using the Permitted Rights regulations, it would appear that Council planners were unable to reject them, although they have put some conditions on the build.


These plans were put forward during lockdown and were not widely advertised, and it is only through information from our members that we were able to bring them to the attention of a wider audience. If you hear of any proposals near you that you are concerned about do let us know.
