    That’s nice for the residents of Thornton Heath. They must be valued special residents.

    Here in East Croydon, there’s some “disappointment” that the planning officers have declined the request by ECCO to come to a meeting to discuss the 106 Funding and the other planning proposals. Despite having Menta-Redrow and Durkan developments occurring in the area and the obvious impacts on local services and the environment, East Croydon residents wont have the chance to discuss the options.

    Croydon Local Plan: Strategic Policies – Partial Review
    There are public events where people can come to look at the Croydon local plan and make their comments, details at
    Planning officers have generously set aside 26 hours to engage Croydon’s population of 376,040, and one assumes that they are trusting that a very small percentage of the population shows any interest and turns up. Even if 1% turned out it would still be well over a hundred people an hour!

    However I do hope that lots of people do attend these events and engage with the authors of the plans to gain an understanding of the rationale behind them.
