Blackhorse Residents Association
WE TRY OUR HARDEST TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
The BHRA was formed 35 years ago to give a voice to local people on issues that matter to them.
The BHRA Committee meets regularly to listen to local concerns and to plan social events, to which all members are invited.
Each road covered by the Association has a representative who is automatically on the committee to ensure that issues are raised and heard.
Recent Matters under discussion have inevitably been the Blackhorse Lane Bridge closure and is negative impact on local residents and local traders, and the newly refurbished Ashburton Hall.
The Association also writes regularly to the Council on issues such as fly-tipping, street lighting and traffic/parking, BHRA worked with the council on behalf of residents to limit the use of Tenterden Road, Pagehurst and Wydehurst for the numerous fun fairs, main entry is now via the new double gates at the front of Ashburton Park.

East India Way to the South of the Park.
On Monday 8th October 2018 Croydon Council announced that Blackhorse Lane Bridge will not open until Q1 2020 at the earliest.
Blackhorse Lane has been closed to vehicles since August 2016, when safety concerns were raised over its corroding structure. It was initially due to be completed by November 2018, but in May 2017 we learned it was delayed until January 2019. This new, further delay is completely unacceptable. I have asked our GLA Member, Steve O’Connell, to challenge the Mayor publicly on why he continues to fail the people of Addiscombe and Woodside. But I need your help to do more.
Join me in signing a letter calling upon Mayor Khan to make this a priority and get this bridge opened – we have waited long enough!
The more people who sign the letter, the more weight it will carry with Mayor Khan.
Yours as ever,
Cllr. Jeet Bains,
Addiscombe East, Conservative
