20mph ‘consultation’ for Norbury

Croydon Council is ‘consulting’ on the proposed introduction of a 20mph Zone in North West Croydon, including the NVRA, NGRA and PHRA sections of Norbury. The ‘consultation’ closes on 15 February.

It is not a consultation in the normal meaning as it is not seeking residents views on the pros and cons of introducing 20mph zones. It is proposing to introduce it and has a legal obligation to enable residents to object.

If you wish to comment have a look at the attached Public Notice and ensure that you quote reference number PD/CH/A61.


The Council’s frequently asked questions document is also attached.


A large scale plan can be viewed at Norbury Library.

The  Council’s Traffic Management Advisory Committee will consider the responses at its May meeting, and advise the Stuart King, the  Cabinet Member for Transport and Environment as to whether to proceed, who will take the final decision.

The proposed zone includes the areas of Norbury Green, Norbury Village and Pollards Hill Residents Associations. On the basis of past discussions about road safety issues they are unlikely to oppose the zone although having reservations about its enforceability. Such issues continue to be a concern to the zone on the other side of London Rd in which the Norbury Avenue & Thornton Heath and  Scots Estate RAs areas are in.
