Update 15 February 2017 – Statutory Consultation

The Statutory Consultation on Croydon’s maximum 20mph speed limit proposal for this area will close at 23.59 on Wednesday 15 February 2017. All representations received in the mailbox up until that time will be considered. 

We will also consider all objections received via the council’s postal mail up until Friday 17 February 2017. The extra time allows for receipt of any objections made by Wednesday but not yet processed by the postal system. 

All objections will be reported to Council Members for their consideration at the meeting of the Traffic Management Advisory Committee scheduled to take place on 9 May 2017, following which objectors will be notified of the outcome.  The outcome will also be placed on this webpage as a further update.

Please note that the agenda and reports will appear on the Council website a week before the meeting and can be accessed using the link

Update 13 January 2017 – Statutory Consultation

The Statutory Consultation on Croydon’s maximum 20mph proposal for the remaining part of the borough (known as areas 3, 4 and 5) is now underway. From this page you can view the Public Notice and plan showing the proposal for area 3. 

The statutory consultation will close on 15 February 2017.  Persons desiring to object to the proposed Order should send a statement in writing of their objection quoting PD/CH/A61 and the grounds thereof to the:

The proposal for area 4 and area 5 have their own public notices and relevant plans.  If you wish to object to either of them, you will need to quote the reference numbers given in their respective public notices.

Large scale plans for all three areas can also be viewed at local libraries situated in any of the three areas. 

What are the next steps?

  • All objections received will be evaluated and where appropriate (in light of any objections) the proposal may be amended before being included as part of an objections report which will be considered by the Councils Traffic Management Advisory Committee meeting in May 2017. 
  • The Committee will make a recommendation to the Cabinet Member for Transport and Environment on whether or not the scheme should be proceeded with for any/all of the three areas i.e. areas 3, 4 and 5.  
  • The Cabinet Member will make the final decision on whether or not to continue with implementation of the proposal for any/all areas.

If the decision is to implement the scheme, the council will prepare the design work and implementation will be commenced.
