Who was the mystery man seen running from car to car in one of Croydon’s controlled parking zones last week?
Tonight is the decisive meeting at Croydon Council over the proposed changes to controlled parking zones.
Residents’ groups are livid that despite accumulating 7,364 objections to the council’s plans across the borough, it seems that Councillor Phil “Two Permits” Thomas and his masterminds who came up with the plan are now trying to say that because there was little opposition, street-by-street, in the area around Mayday Hospital, they can steamroller through the unwanted CPZ plans to penalise the sick and those visiting hospital patients.
There will be another protest outside the Town Hall from 6pm tonight (Feb 9).
Which brings us to an interesting report that has reached Inside Croydon Towers. During the previous protest last Monday week, campaigners leafleted cars in affected zones with a dummy parking ticket, to let car owners know exactly the impact of the council’s proposals.
So who was the Croydon Councillor seen rushing from one leafleted car to the next, removing the leaflets and shouting out after the protestors: “You can’t do that! It’s illegal”?
We may be able to share the councillor’s identity with our reader shortly…
