Drake's Field Footpaths ROW

Thanks to an incredible amount of work done by a small group of local residents (mainly from Woodmansterne) over the last couple of years, Surrey County Council has unanimously granted Right of Way status to the ancient footpaths which cross this land and beyond. There remains some clarification to be done and naturally the landowner, who has already erected some fencing, objects.
Congratulations to all.

Meeting with BbB and LBC Officers


Geoff Hunt (CWRA Committee Member) prepared these notes on our recent meeting with BbB to further discuss the proposed redevelopment plans and where general problems were discussed with Council Officers.


7 December 2017, at Coulsdon Community Centre.
Present
Charlie King; Peter Jarvis;, Rita Barfoot; Geoff Hunt; Maureen Levy; Nigel Rea [OCRA]; Catherine Radziwonik; Bartholomew Wren;  Minal Goswamy; Graham Lomas.

LGR Car Park Site
More parking looked at (120 may well be possible). Path to Scheduled Ancient Monument being looked at; security, particularly at night, is considered important.
Access to scout hut depends on lease. Access to UK Power Network site needs to allow large vehicles, so may make 'double-decking' the car park non-viable.
More parking sought for m/cs.
Hope to get the application in, formally, on 14 or 15 December. 
                                Usually only three weeks to respond, so Xmas might be fraught!                 Sorry!
Brief discussion of trees; tree preservation Orders [TPOs] will stand.  Others - without TPOs - may go . . .
The project needs c 150 dwellings to make it break-even.  Now "157"!  Fairly firmly fixed.  No profit, even at that number, as '50 % affordable'.
Confidential report on affordability. 
PJ questioned about traffic. Chipstead peak traffic up by 50% over four years.  Already exceeding the predicted 2020 traffic levels (after Cane Hill etc. All Completed).
LGR & CVR Junction improvement still outstanding. Second Cane Hill exit depends on the LGR & CVR junction improvement, plus six months after - to observe. 
                                [GH/RB Comment – all these little infill projects do add a lot of housing in total – so cars, kids, patients, etc.  About 30 dwellings added in and around Rickman Hill in about three or four years.]
Complex matter, indeed.  Redevelop the Post Office site, provided one LGR Pavilion being set back a bit, may help. [But, of course, lose the Post Office . . .].

Calat centre
Reconfigured. 
Should now give a little more (very welcome) parking. Still trying to replicate CC.  Meeting w/ trustees tomorrow [8th December 2017].
Health Building on the CALAT Site - NHS funding is thought very likely . . .  However NHS commitment yet to be confirmed.
Height restricted to 'current maximum' for the Health Building, which is intended to have clinical on the ground floor, admin upstairs.  Site split; CC and Health.
Much still to be decided.

Community Centre Site
17 3-bed houses. 33 total dwellings, including flats, affordable; final plans not yet fixed, so some flexibility, still.
Turning circles to be reviewed.  Parking still a query.  Efforts made to make the street 'safe', with no "hiding places" for malefactors.
Parking is an issue here, too. Future steps may include an extension to Coulsdon CBZ Parking zone.

All 'affordable housing' will be transferred to 'Croydon Housing' – a Housing Trust.
Housing types [bedroom(s), and tenure] to be sent through for all three sites above.         Action - Minal.

Happy Valley
Final meeting in LBC - with recommendations - tomorrow.  Costings are rough, at this stage. Some 'innovative' financing will be looked at . . . . .
Next steps to go public after the decisions from tomorrow. Still needs to go through councillors.  Many decisions to be taken.
Funding is a potential stumbling block – there is almost no money.

Town Centre 
Paving deteriorating, but some items take longer . . .
Toilet still closed. This, despite an assurance it will be fixed on Saturday last (4.12.2017).
Council not good at decision making.

Foliage LGR Marlpit & CanE Hill.  Under discussion, and will be pressed on.

Leaden Hill - a ’shed’ for sale.  
Oakwood phase 3 in the New Year. 
Edward Road demolition started - for a total of nine dwellings. 
                                [GH/RB Comment – all these little infill projects do add a lot of housing in total – so cars, kids, patients, etc.]

Parking in front of Pizza Express gives hassle - still to be sorted. PE’s planters in use, but needing Oakwood's help to resolve.
Snagging etc. in the Town Centre: - only fixed if it is a safety matter - trip hazard needs to be 2 cm high.
Even then, time is taken, and not all ‘repairs’ are done well.

Defibrillator 
CK spoke to Waitrose, keen. library - possibly outside, but will need to go through Carillion and the Council.

AOB. Closure of Lloyd's Bank. February 2018 -  an isolated decision, not in consultation with other banks.
Closed at about 1745.

Purley Skyscraper

Please see this update from our MP Chris Philp about the forthcoming Pubic Inquiry on the proposed 17 and 8 storey towers in Purley town centre. 
The Public Inquiry is expected to last 8 days and will be held from Tuesday 9th to Friday 12 January 2018 & Tuesday 16th to Friday 19 January 2018, starting at 10:00am on each day. 
The Public Inquiry will take place in the Purley Baptist Church, Banstead Road, Purley, CR8 3EA.
For background information, there are seven local Residents Associations in total (Riddlesdown, Sanderstead, Hartley, Coulsdon East, West Coulsdon, Kenley and Old Coulsdon) who object to this particular scheme. 
As representatives of our local residents, we are not opposed to new development on the site, as we understand that growth will be key to the future vitality and viability of suburban district centres like Purley. We recognise the acute housing needs in the area and wish to see more new homes provided for local people that are genuinely affordable, so we are not anti-development. We would rather support a new development that has a positive impact on the urban environment and public realm and benefits the wider community. The proposal also does not present convincing evidence as to why the “landmark” buildings as proposed at 17 and 8 stories are appropriate, particularly given their size and massing in relation to the existing Purley townscape. It is not clear how the proposal relates well to the form and character of surrounding buildings in the Purley District Centre; or indeed how it will enhance the public realm (including landscape features) at street level.
We are aware that some residents and one Residents Association (Purley & Woodcote) are supportive of this scheme. However, we are also aware that a number of residents living in the Purley & Woodcote RA area oppose the scheme.
The Planning Inspector will now consider all further representations from the public.
Dear All,

You may recall that last December the council gave planning permission for a 17 floor skyscraper in Purley, despite the fact that 9,000 local residents, 7 local Residents Associations and I opposed it. Such a large building will change the character of Purley, may act as a precedent for other developers and will cause parking chaos (because it has only 37 parking spaces for 220 flats). The site does need to be redeveloped, but 5-7 floors would be more appropriate. Very high buildings have their place – for example in Croydon Town centre – but Purley is not suitable for a skyscraper.

In the Spring I lobbied the Secretary of State, Sajid Javid, and as a result he decided to “Call In” the application – a power that can be used on very large planning consents. This means that the Council’s approval was suspended and the application will be heard again by an independent planning inspector. These hearings will take place over 8 days starting on 9th January, at the Purley Baptist Church next to the site. Local councillors, local Residents Groups and I will be making representations at these hearings, and I will present an updated petition to the inspector.

Your help is essential to try to stop the Skyscraper, and you can do this in one or more of the following four ways (ideally at least both items 1 and 2 below):

1. Sign the petition and forward it
Please sign the petition here:
www.surveymonkey.com/r/PurleySkyscraper
And forward this email and the petition link to as many friends, family and neighbours as possible.
                                 
2. Email your comments direct to the Planning Inspector 
Please email your own comments direct to the Planning Inspector at: Tim.Salter@pins.gsi.gov.uk quoting reference: “3174139: Russell Hill Road, CR8 2LE”. This should be done by 15th December.

Some points to make (in your own words as far as possible) could include:
  • The proposed skyscraper is too tall for Purley. The rest of Purley is 3-5 floors so 17 floors is totally out of keeping and will change the character of the area. The proposed building therefore violates the current London Plan (2016) Policy 7.7 which says that tall buildings should “not have a harmful impact on their surroundings” and also says that “tall buildings may only be considered in areas whose character would not be adversely affected by the scale, mass or bulk of a tall or large building”. Croydon’s existing and emerging Local Plan (2013 and 2017) both repeatedly say that tall buildings must “respect and enhance local character” which this proposed building clearly does not 
  • The proposed skyscraper will be visible from the top of Farthing Down looking approximately north, spoiling the panorama specifically protected in the Croydon UDP (2006) Policy UD11 and para 4.65 
  • Croydon’s existing and emerging Local Plan (CLP1.1 Para 7.59 / CLP1 Para 7.58) both say specifically in relation to Purley that residential growth should “respect the existing residential character and local distinctiveness” which this proposed building does not 
  • The National Planning Policy Framework (2012) says at para 100 that “Inappropriate development in areas at risk of flooding should be avoided by directing development away from areas at highest risk”. Yet Purley Cross has repeatedly flooded, most recently in 2014, and Croydon’s Emerging Local Plan CLP1.1 (2017) even says at para 6.6 that “The Strategic Flood Risk Assessment identifies significant episodes of surface water flooding at Purley Cross” 
  • There are only 37 car parking spaces for 220 flats. This is wholly inadequate and will cause parking chaos. The council’s own planning report at para 8.149 says that 165 spaces are needed. This proposal therefore violates the National Planning Policy Framework (2012) which says at para 29 that transport system need to give people “real choice about how they travel”. 
  • This proposed building has a density of 817 habitable rooms per hectare. This exceeds the London Plan (2016) Policy 3.4 and Table 3.2 limits of 200-700 for urban areas 
  • It is also worth saying that the site is suitable for development, it is just that 17 floors is too high. 5-7 floors would be more suitable. 
3. Consider Speaking at the Enquiry Yourself
Members of the Public can speak at the hearing if they wish. The hearings will take place at the Purley Baptist Church 10am-5pm from Tuesday 9th January to Thursday 18th January (excl. Sat & Sun). The more people who speak the better. If you wish to speak, please also email Tim Salter at Tim.Salter@pins.gsi.gov.uk requesting to speak and quoting reference: “3174139: Russell Hill Road, CR8 2LE”. You would only have to speak for a few minutes, to make some of the points like the ones in section 2 above verbally.

4. Help the local Residents Associations Make their Formal Objections
The 7 Residents Associations will be attending the hearings on all 8 days cross-examining witnesses and making their own detailed submissions. This is being organised by Phil Thomas of Riddlesdown Residents Association, who is a retired Chartered Surveyor by professional background. If you have any relevant legal, planning or architectural expertise and would like to help the team, please email Phil at: riddlesdownresidents@gmail.com

There is of course no guarantee that the Planning Inspector will agree with us, but this this is our last chance to stop the Skyscraper – please help in one or more of the ways above to give us the best possible chance of stopping it!

Best wishes,

Chris

Tuesday, 21 November 2017

Purley Skyscraper

There is to be a public enquiry into the building of this 17- storey block containing 220 residences on the Baptist Church site near the A23/A22 junction in Purley town centre. The enquiry will last for 8 days starting 9th January 2018 and will take evidence from interested parties. All comments must be received by the Council (ref: 17/00047/SOS) by 30th November for consideration.
A building of this size will dominate surrounding areas including Coulsdon, increase traffic congestion and pollution and set a precedent for similar applications.
Please make your views known.

CWRA 2017 AGM Minutes


MINUTES OF THE 68TH ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
COULSDON WEST RESIDENTS’ ASSOCIATION
Thursday 7th September at 7.30
Coulsdon Community Centre

Current Committee:                                                                Apologies
Chair   (Vacant)                                                                     Peter Appleford
Vice Chair (Vacant)                                                              Lynne Rothberg
Lucy Acres                                                                              Rachel Warner
Peter Appleford                                                                    Jaydev Vyas
Rita Barfoot (Secretary-Elect)                                                        Cllr. Mario Creatura
Regan Barfoot                                                                                  Lewis White
Geoff Hunt (Meeting Chair)                                                                                  


Debbie Lamont                   
Steve Mead              
Michael Southwell (Treasure-Elect)
                       

Members in attendance – approximately 65

1. The Chair welcomed attendees and introduced the Committee.

2. The Minutes from the last AGM were approved and seconded by the attendees.

3. Matters/Actions arising from last AGM.
·    The Chair expressed the Committee’s appreciation and gratitude to our road stewards and repeated the request for more to help distribute the Newsletters and help with the webpage. He also invited interested others to join the Committee. Sumera Shamin volunteered to join the Committee, which was approved by the attendees and welcomed by the Committee.
·    A23 Access, CVR/LGR alterations. During a meeting with Cllr. Newman and others it was concluded that the junction alterations (a condition of Cane Hill approval) should proceed with a review after 6 months to judge improvements.
·    Purley GP Hub. After 3 years of intense negotiations with CCCC a GP Hub was opened at Purley Hospital in April, offering treatment for minor injuries and ailments from 8am-8pm, 365 days/year. Although appointments can be made via 111 to reduce wait times at busy periods these are walk-ins with the aim to treat within 2hrs. Initial satisfaction reports are very good and attendance is recommended to ensure its continuation.
·    Drakes’ Field. Disappointment was expressed at the slow progress made on the landscaping, by SES water. A decision on the granting of ROW status to the footpaths is still awaited.
·    Trains.  Appreciation of the work done by the East Surrey Transport Committee, with Charlie King as Chair and Peter Appleford as Secretary to secure us more trains per hour going to where our members want to go was warmly welcomed.

4. Election of Officers
Michael Southwell was nominated, seconded and elected as Treasurer.
Rita Barfoot was nominated, seconded and elected as Secretary.
All Committee members were nominated, seconded and elected.

5. Treasurer’s Report
Detailed accounts were presented to attendees upon arrival, showing a balance of £13,027.95 on 31st December 2016, with £3,668.29 held in the current account; £4289.66 held in a bank deposit account and £5070 on deposit with Aldermore (earning better interest). Newsletter printing costs at £2100 was the greatest expenditure. A charitable donation of £250 was made to Sutton and Croydon M.S. Society. The profit for the year was £506, which was more than the previous year due to there only being 3 newsletters at a cost of £700 per issue rather than the usual 4.  Member’s subscriptions were down from £3,755.85 to £3153.15 as a result of losing road stewards. Uptake of standing order mandates is slow but continuing.  The accounts were proposed, seconded and accepted.

6. Guest Speaker: Chris Philp, MP for Croydon South
Chris again entertained the membership with tales from Westminster. He remains a fierce critic of the Southern rail service and has “stalked” Chris Grayling and even the P.M. arguing for improvements. He confirmed that the Secretary of State, Sajid Javid, has agree to review the Purley Skyscaper application and his decision is awaited.

Chris has continued to take a keen interest in Coulsdon West matters and adds great support, where appropriate, to his constituents and CWRA.  He received warm applause for his talk.

7. Update on Local Matters
·      Lion Green Car Park, CALAT, Library and Community Centre.  LBC intends to re-develop these community assets, principally to provide more housing. The developer will be Brick by Brick (BbB), their construction partner with LBC being their only shareholder. The plans for the car park are expected to be presented to LBC for approval in the very near future. Initial discussions with BbB seemed positive but have stalled in recent months. Given the damage done to Coulsdon businesses and residents by the previous unfounded Car Park closure,  all stakeholders are united in the insistence that 100-120 public car parking spaces be included in the plans. The promised sight of pre-submission plans has not been forthcoming, but are believed to encompass 107 dwellings over 3/4 blocks with an inadequate 50 parking spaces. Excess cars will obviously use the public car spaces, the actual number of which awaits confirmation, but no doubt will prove highly contentious.

            Architects are in discussions with the Community Centre management and RAs as the             aims are to include all the Centre’s activities, the library, possibly a medical centre, a      car park and housing on the site.

·      Wells Cottages.  Due to overwhelming public objections to the plans to demolish these cottages (without informing the residents) and replace them with 9 flats, completely unsympathetic to surrounding architecture and with insufficient parking provision, the developers have withdrawn the application, for the time being.

·      Grove Lane.  CWRA objected to outline planning approval sought from Sutton Council to build 100 residences on the Metropolitan Green Belt Land to the north of Grove Lane. All vehicular access to the Mount/Clockhouse is via our already congested Coulsdon West roads and it was proposed that all traffic including construction vehicles would use Grove Lane to access these roads. The only community assets proposed were a shop and a café, which would compete with those on Hillcrest Parade, with the use of Coulsdon amenities   recommended.

·      LBC remain anti-car refusing to allow adequate parking on new developments, with all the problems associated, mainly the increasingly dangerous parking on side streets, which causes much trouble (sometimes involving the police). They consistently only allow 0.3 or 0.5 spaces, regardless of the size of residences even when developers can offer more.

·      Woodcote Traffic Restrictions.  Much time was necessarily given to discussions over the implementation, without discussion, of a ban on entry to Dunsfold Rise, Meadow Rise and Fairfield Way between 8-9.30am and 2-4.30pm Mon-Fri. Monitoring done using CCTV with fines of £130 for transgression.

            From a RA perspective, issues that unite the community so effectively are usually to be           welcomed but this was so appallingly handled, was unnecessary and might have been        avoided if LBC had shown the respect due to Croydon Charge payers.

            Further to these discussions and other meetings held, CWRA subsequently submitted             the following objection to Parking Design. It by no means includes all the valid   consequences raised by members but addresses LBC’s aims associated with the             restrictions.

                  Coulsdon West Residents’ Association (CWRA) strongly objects to the introduction of these restrictions,                implemented with no adequate consultation (generally accepted as requiring discussion before                    implementation) with our members. These restrictions were made under a TTMO, which although not legally requiring communication with residents shows total disrespect to the many Council Charge Payers adversely             affected by this ill-conceived order.
                  It is widely accepted that most of the problems surrounding schools are caused by a small number of inconsiderate offenders consistently parking across drives, on junctions and even on double yellow lines.          CWRA believes that consistent and effective enforcement of existing regulations would relieve much of the        parking rage experienced and we call on LBC to provide this enforcement.
                  At a recent meeting, Cllr. Stuart King stated that due to the geographically wide distribution of pupils   attending Woodcote Primary: 50% of the 700 were eligible to travel by car: 50% were ineligible using a           distance/time formula which assumes that 4yr.olds, 10 yr.olds, 20 yr.olds and aged grandparents walk at the   same speed. Some do and some do not but mobility issues have not been considered, with blue badge holders             finding there has been no provision put in place for exemption. He stated that by a show of hands on a single     day 65% of pupils travel by car, which is deemed unacceptable. No figures have been presented to show how        many pupils actually walk to school at present nor the results of any surveys performed to discover why           parents need to drive e.g. children attending different schools/nurseries, parents having other caring                    responsibilities or even needing to get to their work. We believe that this research should have been a fundamental requisite before the order was considered.
                  The stated aims of these restrictions are laudable but we do not believe that they will be achievable and will       be made worse because of the lack of reasoning employed here.

1. Improving Safety
There have been no reported accidents in these three roads for at least 5 yrs, some reports suggest 7yrs, while there have been a number, some serious in Woodcote Grove Road (WGR).  Statistics show that children are 15X more likely to be killed or injured when walking to school than when being driven. Your car dispersal to surrounding unsuitable roads requiring more children to walk along WGR will likely increase the current zero accident rate to the pupils. The only safety provision made is to provide a Lollypop person at Meadow Rise to help with the exodus from the High School, which is ironic as previous requests for a crossing here have been refused on safety grounds. Egress from the surrounding cul–de–sacs with poor sight lines and where you expect the displaced drivers to park is difficult at all times of the day, and it should be obvious that the safety risks to drivers and pedestrians will be greatly increased.

2. Reducing pollution
Again we would have expected to see the results of air-quality studies carried out, before the building works began, to judge any reduction in pollution in the three roads as a result of these measures. It must be obvious that pollution will increase in the surrounding roads as drivers execute three-point turns and wait for a considerable time before being able to exit. What plans are in place to measure this and what base line will be used?

3. Helping traffic flow
In the absence of any presented traffic assessment we must base our comments on our extensive local knowledge of traffic flow. Given the volume of traffic using WGR at these restricted times it beggars belief that there has been no consideration of the impact of even slight delays on local pinch points such as the Marlpit Lane and Foxley Lane roundabouts, as well as increased flow along our already congested side roads by drivers seeking alternate routes. Delays will NOT be slight as displaced drivers turn into and out of the affected roads. Traffic delays along WGR interfere with bus schedules meaning that many more people, unconnected with Woodcote, will suffer disruption to their daily commute or to their lives in general.  Just how is it proposed to measure these impacts?

4. Changing peoples’ behaviour
This is perhaps the most contemptuous, insulting and unjustified of the aims and is deeply resented by our members. By what right do you presume to demonise people who drive children to school when you have absolutely no idea of the lifestyle factors influencing their need to drive?

By acting like Feudal Lords of old you have managed to cause conflict between parents and over worked school staff to whom you seem to have delegated responsibility for the scheme’s administration, have alienated CWRA members who will suffer considerable disruption to their daily lives, and in our opinion will have achieved little except to further erode trust and confidence in LBC to act in the best interests of constituents. You have solved nothing by moving isolated problems to affect a greater number of people.

I am sure our members will advise you of their particular difficulties, as there are far, far too many for inclusion here.

We have to conclude that your handling of this issue has to constitute the worst LBC PR exercise most of us can remember, and there have been a few.     Rita Barfoot, Secretary- Elect

·      Future Challenges
            To oppose LBC’s anti-car policy which causes so many problems for members by            continuing to press home that Coulsdon has hills, an older demographic with many areas lacking public transport.
            To seek proper enforcement of laws and regulations, which would do much to ease     tensions among residents.
            To seek swift action to remedy anti-social behaviour, littering, pot-holes, overgrown    vegetation, street cleaning and, of course, Parking.

8. Guest Speaker: Alan Archbold from Purley Fire Station.
Alan gave an interesting and informative talk advising attendees both on how to avoid fires and how best to react should one occur. He recommended requesting a home inspection from the fire service, provided free of charge, to give individual advice. They will also supply and fit smoke detectors free of charge where needed. He supplied useful booklets, which were gratefully received by many attendees. Unfortunately, because he and his accompanying team members were actually on call, time was limited but his attendance was much appreciated by members.

9. Councillor’s report: Councillor Luke Clancy hosted a Q&A session with attendees, covering several topics, which was well received.

                       

Given the lateness of the hour, the Chair closed the meeting with thanks to attendees and the invitation to partake of more refreshments.

Coulsdon Re-development plans


As you are aware, Croydon, like many other London boroughs, has a growing population and an acute housing shortage. Croydon Council has launched an ambitious house-building programme to address this problem through the setup of a development company called ‘Brick by Brick’. 

Over the last year, we at Brick by Brick have been engaging with the local community and will be writing to local residents, businesses and interested parties’ later this week in the immediate vicinity of potential development sites at Lion Green Road Car Park, former CALAT Coulsdon and Coulsdon Community Centre to invite them to join us, meet the team and view the emerging proposals at the events below.  This email is to provide you with information ahead of this engagement process.  I have attach site plans for your information.

DATES & TIMES :

Wednesday 4 October 2017 at 4.00pm – 8.00pm
Saturday 7 October 2017 at 10.00am – 2.00pm

LOCATION: St Aidan’s Church, Chipstead Valley Road, CR5 3BB

We would also like to take this opportunity to invite you to the event should you wish to attend.

For residents that are unable to attend and would like more information, they may call our event managers on 020 8536 1436 / (0800 644 6040 Freephone) or contact them by email atcroydon@newmanfrancis.org.
