esidents will be all too aware that the terrible traffic situation in Addiscombe is getting worse. This has particularly affected residents all the way from East Croydon station to Shirley Road, along with the side roads in between. Some side roads have had massive increases in traffic, causing considerable inconvenience to Addiscombe residents. But Addiscombe Conservatives have been helping to get the whole Addiscombe community together to find solutions that people will find acceptable.

Axe Labour’s Parking Tax: sign our petition to stop up to a 275% rise!  Croydon’s Labour Council has announced proposals that mean you could be paying 275% more for a parking permit for outside your own home.

Plans proposed by the Labour Council also mean that parking ticket prices will also increase by 30%. Any cars older than 2001 will automatically pay £300 more per year. This will hit the elderly and low-income residents hard, who will find it difficult to buy a new vehicle to meet the rules, and those who rely on driving to work.

Whilst Labour think that the only way to improve air quality is to tax you more, Croydon Conservatives want to improve air quality without balancing it on the backs of the elderly, those on low incomes and those who rely on their vehicles to work.

LOCAL NEWS ROUND UP  Planning Applications: Planning applications continue to be a major issue in Addiscombe. On Northampton Road, for example, a developer is turning a family home into five flats. Poor parking provision, overcrowding and upset neighbours, but Labour’s planning committee passed it as usual.  Litter and Fly Tipping: We’re receiving lots of complaints about litter and fly-tipping.

Local Community

You can report this on the Council app or email me and I will ask for it to be cleaned. However, let’s all encourage our friends and family to keep setting a good example that others can emulate.

Labour’s plans for Addiscombe will be opposed!  Plans by the Labour Council for the ‘intensification’ of housing development in Croydon mean that residental neighbourhoods like Addiscombe are under threat from greedy developers. On April 1st, Labour Councillors approved the Suburban Design Guide Supplementary Planning Document (SPD2), which will form part of the guidelines to be applied when decisions are made about future planning applications.

Can you help deliver our community newsletter in your road?

This means that insensitive local developments will be harder to propose. But you can help us stop Labour’s overdevelopment:
