Proposed introduction of emission-based charges for resident and business parking permits
London Borough of Croydon From 23 May 2019  to 20 Jun 2019
Feedback due 02 Sep 2019
Why are we doing this?

We are proposing to introduce emission-based charges for resident and business parking permits, plus a diesel surcharge, to all controlled parking permit zones within the borough.

These proposals are in response to feedback we've had from our communities who have told us that they are concerned about air quality, and that traffic levels should be reduced*. 

We are also working to a number of national, regional and local drivers with an aim of reducing emissions. The full list of these initiatives can be found in the cabinet paper below, however, some examples are:

  • The National Clean Air Strategy 2019 (aims to clean up the UK's air and reduce the damaging impact air pollution has on public health, including the harmful emissions from vehicles amongst other sources),
  • The Mayor's Transport Strategy 2018 (prioritises public health and aims to reduce car dependency),
  • Croydon's Air Quality Action Plan 2017-22 (which aims to reduce exposure to air pollution and raising awareness for those who live and work in Croydon).

If introduced, the emission-based charges will be launched in two stages:

Residents' permits - October 2019

Business and other permits - April 2020

We are also proposing to introduce emission-based charges to on and off street parking places, we plan to consult on this in 2020, after we've explored what technology would be needed.

*A survey on the future of transport for the draft third Local Implementation Plan (LIP3) in September 2018 found that 74% of respondents are concerned about air quality in Croydon and 72% agreed that traffic levels should be lowered.

Proposed introduction of new School Streets
London Borough of Croydon From 23 May 2019  to 20 Jun 2019
Feedback due 02 Sep 2019
Why are we doing this?

We are proposing to introduce new School Streets in Croydon. These proposals are in response to requests for something to be done about high levels of traffic, safety issues and air pollution outside school entrances. Croydon already has three School Streets which have led to 250 fewer children travelling to school by car with most of them walking, cycling or scooting instead.

A survey in July 2017 found that 88% of respondents agreed that the Air Quality Actions Plan healthy streets initiatives are important.

The roads being considered are:

  • Abingdon Road (between Turle Road & Upwood Road), at Norbury Manor Primary School.
  • Biggin Way (between Biggin Hill & Downsview Road), at Downsview Primary and Nursery Schools.
  • Brading Road (between Cecil Road & Lavender Road), at West Thornton Primary Academy.
  • Cypress Road, at Cypress Primary School.
  • Goston Gardens (between Winterbourne Road & Oaklands Avenue), at Winterbourne Girls and Boys Schools.
  • Kendra Hall Road, at Harris Academy Purley and Regina Coeli Primary School.
  • Little Roke Road (between Lower Road & the north-western flank wall of No. 47 Little Roke Road), at Harris Primary Academy Kenley.
  • Rosecourt Road, at West Thornton Primary Academy.
  • Winterbourne Road (between London Road & Wiltshire Road), at Winterbourne Girls and Boys Schools.

The Public Notice and drawings for the indivdual schemes are provided below.

If introduced, the School Streets will be rolled out between September 2019 and April 2020.

Norbury Park Outdoor Active Space
London Borough of Croydon From 20 May 2019  to 09 Jun 2019
Feedback due 21 Jun 2019
Why are we doing this?

Norbury Park is the fifth and final site in this phase of delivering outdoor active spaces for Croydon. Other sites have included: Goldcrest Way in New Addington, Grangewood Park in Thornton Heath, Purley Way Playing Fields in Waddon and King George’s Field in Selhurst.

This outdoor active space is part of the masterplan for Norbury Park and is designed to be accessible and open to all adults and older children. It is funded by grants from the Matt Palmer Trust, community ward budgets and section 106 funds. The full proposal is available below.

Councillor Oliver Lewis, cabinet member for culture leisure and sport said:

‘These sites are part of our Live Well agenda. We are creating exciting and innovative spaces in local communities that address health inequalities and inactivity throughout the borough, and encouraging all residents to lead healthy and active lifestyles. They are free to use, accessible and open to everyone – encouraging all of us to be active outdoors all year round – whatever the weather!’

Below is an idea of what the space could look like, showing a range of outdoor fitness equipment.

Addington Conservation Area Review Consultation
London Borough of Croydon From 18 Apr 2019  to 30 May 2019
Feedback due 30 Sep 2019
Why are we doing this?

Croydon Council is consulting on proposals following a review of Addington Village Conservation Area. 

The review of the conservation area has identified boundary amendments that would better reflect the area’s special architectural and historic interest.  Following this review, the council is proposing to adopt:

  • A new Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan (CAAMP).
  • Changes to the conservation area boundary to include Addington Palace and Parkland (including Roxton Gardens), and to remove areas of modern development that do not relate to the historic development of the area.  The name is proposed to be changed from Addington Village Conservation Area to Addington Conservation Area to reflect inclusion of the Palace and Parkland.
  • Inclusion of the former stables (Addington Palace Golf Clubhouse) and Stable Lodge on the council’s Local List of Buildings of Architectural or Historic Significance.

The CAAMP will be adopted as an SPD (as defined by the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 (as amended) and the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012) to give it weight as a material planning consideration when determining planning applications. Once adopted, Addington CAAMP will supersede the existing Conservation Area Statement which was issued in 1996. The statement is outdated and did not provide sufficient information regarding the historical development of Addington or the significance of the conservation area. This Appraisal and Management Plan will address this.

Full details are available at https://www.croydon.gov.uk/planningandregeneration/framework/conservation

Formal consultation on these proposals will take place between Thursday 18 April – Thursday 30 May 2019. A public consultation event will be held at Addington Church Hall,  Addington Village Road, Croydon, CR0 5AS on Thursday 9 May 2019 between 16:00 and 20:00. During this event, there will be further information and council officers on hand to answer questions. A public meeting will start at 18:30.

The consultation display will also be available to view at Croydon Clocktower between 11 and 18 May.

Have your say on Croydon's draft parking policy
London Borough of Croydon From 08 Apr 2019  to 05 May 2019
Feedback due 07 Jul 2019
Why are we doing this?

Parking affects almost everyone that lives, works or visits Croydon. The competition for road space from pedestrians, cyclists, vehicles and parking is growing, in particular in areas where new homes are being built and outside schools.

The draft parking policy sets out the aims and objectives for 2019 to 2022 for parking services; to manage the demand, improve air quality in Croydon by encouraging less reliance on cars and the use of lower emitting vehicles, and improving safety outside the borough’s schools.

Client Contributions / Charging Policy Questionnaire
London Borough of Croydon From 17 Dec 2018  to 30 Apr 2019
Feedback due 29 Mar 2019
Why are we doing this?

We want Croydon to be a healthy, safe and great place to live and we have duties as laid out in the legislation including the Care Act, 2014 to provide support to those who may need it and / or are eligible.

We want to ensure equity and fairness in the distribution of our resources and like all councils, we are finding it hard to balance the budget as national funding for council services reduces further and more people need care and support across the adult population.

In order to ensure we are supporting and protecting our most vulnerable residents we are exploring new ways to deliver services and address our financial challenges.

The purpose of the consultation is to hear your views on a number of changes we are proposing to make to our adult social care charging policy.  It is also important for us to understand how these proposed changes could impact you before making any decisions.

This consultation will help us to explore the impact of proposals to change the charging policy for adult social care. The consultation process helps the council understand the impact before making decisions and welcome your views.
