Allowance increases for Councillors

With some honourable exceptions Councillors have voted to increase their annual allowances with Cabinet members to receive several thousands of pounds extra per year. So much for the hike in Council Tax going to the community.

Woodcote traffic restrictions

It will surprise few that at Thursday's TMAC meeting, in spite of overwhelming public opposition supported by our Councillors, the Council voted to make the restrictions permanent. It followed the publication of a travesty of an "independent" report which ignored all the well-founded submissions from the community adversely affected by the restrictions during the so-called consultation period of the experimental traffic order. Because none exists, no data supporting their ideological desire to force lifestyle changes on residents was presented.

Hi all.

CWRA,  required by registration has complied to conform to the new CPDR rules about privacy. In the past all notifications coming to info have resulted into contact with any relevant authorities capable of response. Unfortunately, info is no longer to provide such useful personal data about residents' problems, unless we are given specific approval to act on your behalf.

Moped Thugs in Coulsdon

On Friday evening some residents were attacked and robbed at knife-point as they returned to their home on Cane Hill by thugs using a moped. Few details are available but although the residents were physically unharmed they remain traumatised.

Please be as vigilant and aware as possible as these thugs can strike anywhere very quickly.
