Fisher’s Folly shows problems addressing council services

Our loyal reader’s been in touch again.

They’ve just received a letter from one of the council departments working in Fisher’s Folly, the country’s most costly borough offices, the £220 million glass palace on Cost A Mint Walk from which all our local “services” are dispensed.

“They don’t know their own postcode,” Inside Croydon’s loyal reader observes.

Council letterThe correct postcode for the council headquarters should be CR0 1EA. 

“The address is so long that anyone replying would need to use 172 characters (not including spaces) just for the name and address,” our reader observes.

An accessible council? Our reader suggests not. “Simple things which unfortunately show the council is not even providing the basics of a good service.”

Presumably, all this will change now that Nathan Elvery has been appointed as the “new” council chief executive. Oh.
