Healthy Streets Project
Croydon Council project plan
This will be a 2 – 3 year project. The funding for this scoping project is from Transport for London’s (TfL) Healthy Streets scheme. This means that any scheme the Council puts forward to TfL will have to meet TfL’s Healthy Streets Policies.
Any scheme would also have to meet TfL’s approval as regards possible impact on buses and trams.
Community engagement – here’s how you can get involved
Stage 1 of Council resident engagement – 1st Drop-in session
Residents can go to any drop-in session that suits them. It doesn’t have to be the nearest.
Thursday 23 November 2023, 4.30 – 8.30 pm - Clyde Hall, Clyde Road CR0 6SZ
Wednesday 29 November 2023, 4.30 – 8.30 pm – Tunstall Nursery, Tunstall Road CR0 6TY
Thursday 30 November 2023, 4.30 – 8.30 pm – St Mildred’s Church Small Hall, 30 Bingham Road CR0 7EB
Monday 4 December 2023, 4.30 – 8.30 pm – Church of the Nazarene, 57A Lower Addiscombe Road CR0 6PQ
At first Drop-in session the Council will display all the information they have.
Residents will have an opportunity to express views at the actual drop-in session. They can also go away, think about their response and contact the Council or us later.
Residents groups (like Canning & Clyde) will also have an opportunity to put forward residents’ views in the weeks following the Drop-ins.
Canning & Clyde – At this stage we’ll be seeking the views of residents living in Canning and Clyde Roads. Click the link button to see how we'll be doing this.
Stage 2 of Council resident engagement – 1st Co-design session
We have been told this may be in the last week in January 2024.
The Co-design meeting will have a limited number of people from across the area. We do not know the exact number. Council officers will have used feed-back from the Drop-ins to design this Co-design meeting. The purpose of the meeting is to get people to talk about ideas and come up with possible solutions.
Council officers will then take these possible solutions away and test them to see if they are feasible. They will also discuss with TfL possible impact on buses and trams.
Stage 3 of Council resident engagement – 2nd Co-design session
This may take place after the London Mayor election in May.
The Council will inform participants what the assessment of resident ideas has thrown up, how discussions with TfL went, whether ideas will work or if they need to make adjustments. The Council will give participants information to help them think about adjustments.
At this stage there will need some kind of consensus.
Stage 4 of Council resident engagement – 2nd Drop-in session
At this final session, the Council will present ‘solutions and outcomes for everyone to understand’. Basically it’s informing people of what the Council will propose.
Decision by directly elected Mayor of Croydon
The final decision on what happens in our roads will be made by directly elected Mayor, Jason Perry.
