The following is an email from the Old Coulsdon Ward policing team about The Herbert Protocol. The Herbert protocol form and the guidance notes that go with it are linked at the end of this article:

 

Dear Ward Member,
DO YOU CARE FOR SOMEONE WITH SUPPORT NEEDS SUCH AS DEMENTIA AND WORRY THEY MAY GO MISSING?

There is nothing more frightening than when a loved one, friend or neighbour goes missing or fails to return when they should.
For people living with dementia, this could be quite common.

Purley Baptist Church Sites and 17 storey Tower Redevelopment Site

A Joint Statement by Riddlesdown, Hartley & District, Sanderstead, East Coulsdon, Coulsdon West, Old Coulsdon and Kenley & District Residents’ Associations

The seven RAs in the south of the Borough learnt with great surprise on Monday 3 December that the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities & Local Government (James Brokenshire) had overturned Croydon Council's planning decision on the 17 storey Purley tower (19 storeys in total)   and other associated proposals for the two sites fronting Banstead Rd, Purley.

Following the Public Inquiry in January 2018, the Planning Inspector (David Nicholson; a Chartered Architect) had recommended approving the scheme but this recommendation and Croydon Council's decision has been overturned by the Secretary of State. This decision is subject to any appeal to the High Court by an involved party, which must be made by 15 January 2019.

We have received notification today from the Secretary of State that the application to redevelop Purley Baptist Church (a.k.a. "Purley Tower") has been REFUSED.

Network rail have opened a consultantion on proposals to upgrade the Brighton Main Line and it's branches.

The first phase of this consultation runs from the 5th of November to the 17th of December 2018.

Details can be found here.

 

On Thursday the 26th of July the Bourne Society unveiled a Blue Plaque on the wall of the flats at the top of Station Approach Road, to mark the site of the closed Coulsdon North Station and the train crash of 1910 in which local scouts assisted with the rescue.
