HADRA needs your help!

HADRA is run on an entirely voluntary basis by local residents, many of whom have been involved with HADRA for many years. As an organisation we’d like to do a lot more – particularly in light of the Council’s bankruptcy and the subsequent cuts in services – but we need more people to share the load. We’d also welcome any fresh ideas about what HADRA can do to protect or improve our local area. Perhaps you’d like to take part in community litter picking, or improve our green spaces…

So how can you help?

  1. Join our Committee! We meet once a month, currently on a Thursday evening at Coulsdon Manor Hotel. Please contact our Secretary if you’d like to know more.
  2. Become a HADRA Rep! We encourage our members to pay their subscriptions by standing order, so we no longer need Road Stewards to […]

Sale of Coulsdon Manor Hotel & Golf Course

On 12th July 2021, Croydon Council’s Cabinet approved the sale of a number of public assets, including the Council’s freehold interest in the hotel and golf course at Coulsdon Manor. Negotiations are ongoing with the current leaseholder, but one of the conditions of the sale is that the golf course, putting greens and tennis courts remain as public facilities, in accordance with the terms of the current 125 year lease (103 years remaining).

It is a common misconception that Coulsdon Court (as it was previously known) was left to the people of Coulsdon in a will; it wasn’t. It was sold to the Council in the 1930s. A full history can be found here.

Inevitably there are rumours circulating that there are plans to build housing on the golf course. No such planning application has been submitted. Don’t forget […]
