Notice from Croydon Council on Footway resurfacing on Stoneyfield Rd
30/01/2018 16:19:00......Posted by Margaret Bird

 London Borough of Croydon Place Department Highways Team Bernard Weatherill House 6th Floor, Zone C 8 Mint Walk Croydon CR0 1EA Home owner/Occupier London Borough of Croydon Dear Sir/Madam Footway Surfacing I am writing to inform you that Kier Highways, on behalf of Croydon Council, will shortly be commencing resurfacing at the location/s and date/s below: Date: 13th – 19th February 2018 (excluding weekends) between 08:00- 19:00 Location: Stoneyfield Road To enable the Contractor to undertake the works, on-street parking will be suspended during works hours. We also kindly ask that with forward planning vehicular and pedestrian access to and from properties adjacent to the footway are reduced to a minimum during the works hours. Please speak to the site foreman for any assistance. Advance driver / resident information boards will be in place before the works commence, advising of the precise dates and times of the road restrictions that will be in place. Please however note that unforeseen circumstances (e.g. inclement weather conditions) may necessitate a change to the scheduled dates and information on road signs will be changed accordingly. Please check the road signs regularly for any updates The resurfacing works will take place between O/S House No-13 to Coulsdon Rise and due to the nature of these works it is inevitable that some disruption will occur. For this reason it is recommended that where possible you use alternative routes, or allow extra time to complete your journey. The on-street parking suspensions that will be in place within the works area are 08:00-19:00 on 13th – 19th February 2018 (excluding weekends). No parking for residents on the highway in the areas covered by the enforcement signs. Please note that penalty charge notices (PCN’s) will be applied to vehicles parked within the suspended areas during the works hours and/or vehicles relocated. Due to the above we would urge all residents to ensure that their vehicles are moved from the suspended areas in order to avoid any delays to the works as well as incurring any charges. If your vehicle is relocated please contact the LBC on 020 8726 6000 Ext 52816, who will provide you with an exact location of your vehicle. We are extremely sorry for the inconvenience this may cause residents; however we want to ensure that all works carried out on the Croydon network are to the highest standards to ensure value for our residents. Beware Bogus Callers Croydon Council does not permit its employees or contractors to undertake work on private property during the course of any scheme. If anyone offers such work they will not be a council approved contractor and should be treated with caution. Any scheme undertaken by a council approved contractor does not require cash payments. Cold calling doorstep traders offering to carry out home maintenance work such as driveway repairs and roofing are a problem in Croydon. These traders can be very persuasive and can intimidate you into agreeing to have work undertaken. The advice from Croydon Trading Standards Service is to say “NO” to all cold calling traders – Every Time. If they will not leave or you get into difficulties, then call Croydon Trading Standards on 020 8407 1311 Thank you for your cooperation whilst we carry out this essential upgrade. If you require any further information do not hesitate to contact us by email: HighwaysMaintenance@croydon.gov.uk or tel: 020 8726 6000 Ext 52816.

Tollers Estate
22/01/2018 22:38:00.......Posted by Margaret Bird

Cllr Margaret Bird and Cllr Chris Wright attended the newly formed residents forum on Tollers Estate tonight. The enthusiasm from residents to improve the estate was evident as was their concerns with the imminent  additional 40+ homes being built by the Council building arm Brick by Brick without concern for improving the infrastructure. We are constantly  asking for improved parking, the verges to be maintained and the drains to be upgraded before building works commence and for the new Community Centre to be fully kitted out as originally agreed before planning permission was granted.
