Council proposals for our area
The Council has been set very tough priorities and targets by central Government and the Mayor of London in relation to sustainable traffic management and providing Croydon residents with a good quality of life. The Local Implementation Plan for Traffic can be found online at the Council’s website.
It contains the strategies to meet these priorities and targets. There are many elements to this.

If you have any opinions on these, do please let our Councillors and us know.
Electric car charging points

Consultation on residents' parking permits charges
Thirdly - Croydon Council has launched a consultation on new emissions-based parking charges, offering major discounts to drivers with less polluting cars. The scheme would offer significant parking permit discounts for the least polluting vehicles with some drivers only paying £6.50 for an annual resident’s parking permit. Those with more polluting (possibly older) cars could pay considerably more. For links to the Draft Parking Policy 2019-2022 and the propsed charges from
