Petition – Stop anti-social drinking in Norbury Hall Park

The petition to Croydon Council and the Metropolitan Police started by Friends of Norbury Hall Park reads,

“Local residents and visitors to Norbury Hall Park have had enough of the blight of litter and other anti-social behaviour caused by heavy drinking in our lovely park and surrounding area. We are therefore petitioning the London Borough of Croydon and Metropolitan Police to take action now and instate a Public Space Protection Order or a controlled Drinking Zone covering the park and surrounding streets. 

Help us make Norbury Hall Park a wonderful community green space everyone can enjoy.”

The new draft London Plan has been published and is available here.

How to comment

You can register online to comment.

Comments must be received by 5pm on Friday 2 March 2018.

Some of the points raised at a recent meeting that you may wish to consider:

  • The removal of protection for back gardens (contrary to national policy)
  • The removal of the density matrix (which sets limits on housing density)
  • The removal of targets for family homes
  • Protection of green belt
  • The reduction in parking standards – new developments near transport hubs should have zero parking provision without exception
  • Increase in 10-year housing targets (Croydon’s target was 14,348. The target proposed is 29,490).

If you have comments to make on the list above or any other comments on issues or areas that think should be supported contained within the new draft London Plan,  please add a comment to the post or email CroydonNeighbourhoods@gmail.com to share it with other residents.

Have your say! MOPAC consultation on accessing Met Police services

MOPAC CONSULTATION on accessing Met Police services

Including public meeting…

Please help spread the word!

The Met Police have had to find £600m of savings and must save a further £400m by 2020.

The Mayor, Sadiq Khan, has published draft plans to close costly and underused police front counters in London and provide better ways to contact the Met online. 

Doing this would help to meet growing public demand to be able to access Met Police services from smartphones, tablets and computers, whilst saving £10mill that could be spent instead on frontline policing.

Public consultation session in Croydon

The Metropolitan Police Service is holding public consultation sessions in every London Borough so that local people can learn about the changes described in this document and can give their views.

The session in Croydon will be held on:

4 October 2017 at 6.30pm
 Council Chamber
Croydon Town Hall
Katherine Street
CROYDON
CR0 1NX

There is no need to book. Just turn up on the night.
