Local Planning

Transport for London (TfL) would like your views on the current situation and on two possible proposals to improve road capacity at the junction of the A23/A232 at Fiveways Croydon

Please visit tfl.gov.uk/fiveways-croydon to see details of the proposals and to have your say. The deadline for comments is 15 March 2015.

The two proposals are:

  • A road, cycle and pedestrian bridge connecting the A232 between Croydon Road and Duppas Hill Road
  • Widening the A23 where it crosses the railway by Waddon station and making Epsom Road wider to accommodate two-way traffic

Both proposals would change the road layout and the look of some streets in the area. Both would also improve facilities for other road users by providing new cycle lanes, more accessible pedestrian crossings and improving bus services. The proposals would help to meet a likely increase in traffic, caused by growth in the local economy and population, by reducing congestion and improving journey time reliability. We want to make the roads included in the scheme safer, more accessible and more pleasant for all road users.

New security gates on Addiscombe Ave 

Concerned about increased dog fouling and strangers lurking at the the rear of houses, an Addiscombe Avenue resident approached CHASE in recent months to ask what could be done to keep trespassers out of an alleyway shared by a number of neighbours. 

Your residents' association forwarded details of Croydon Council's Alley Gating scheme, where all householders sharing a common alleyway can apply to have secure gates installed with a generous subsidy from the local authority. The cost to each household is only £35 whilst the real cost of supplying and fitting the gates and anti-climb security measures runs into thousands of pounds.

The group of neighbours who have access to the alleyway submitted an application and CHASE facilitated payment to the council. The gate, offering added security to residents on the south west side of Addiscombe Avenue, was installed within a matter of weeks. 

Would you benefit from Alley Gating?
Most houses are broken into from the rear of the premises, particularly where exposed by easily accessible alleys. Alley Gating is a tried and tested way to reduce this type of crime. Contact your CHASE street representative if you would like more information on this scheme.
