CURRENT ISSUES AROUND EAST COULSDON


LION GREEN ROAD CAR PARK - CLOSED

 

ECRA, along with the other RAs and Business Groups succesfully were oposed the closure as we knew thise would caused problems for local businesses, shoppers and commuters alike.  However, the closure has gone ahead and, after representations by the Coulsdon RAs, we are pleased to say that the Council has agreed to convert part of the Calat Centre Car Park as short term shoppers car park.


Cane Hill

 

The Secretary of State in August 2014 has agreed this planing application can go ahead.  ECRA, along with the other RAs and Business Groups are still continuing to campaign for a exit direct onto the By-Pass. Development is on hold until the appear period of the Judicial Review is passed.


Pigeon Droppings in Town Centre Under Coulsdon Town Centre Railway Bridge

 

In February 2014, the Council withdrew the steam cleaning of the pavement due to their cuts.  This has resulted in the pavement being in an appalling dirty mess and ahealth hazzard.  ECRAalong with the other RAs and business groups are pressing the new adminstration in Croydon to re-introduce the steam cleaning under this and other railway briadges.  We are also pressing Network Rail to improve the pigeon proofing of this and other bridges in the area to prevent the pigeons gaining access. We continue to press for this to be done.  They have imporoved but has not resolved the problem.  We are therefore pressing for further improvements.
