WARNING TO ALL ANIMAL OWNERS – We are reporting the shooting of a domestic animal

HADRA is extremely sad to report that on Tuesday May 24th between 20.00 and 21.30 a much-loved 1 year old cat was shot with an air gun in the Hartley area.  She was very seriously injured, in a state of terror and shock and is currently in surgery.  Sadly, it is most unlikely that she will survive this horrendous attack.  The treatment is costing thousands of pounds.

She was wearing a GPS tracker on her collar, so the area of the attack can be seen precisely as being inside the allotments, near the driveway entrance on Stoats Nest Road.  The vet has informed the owner that the bullets went in from a height, so there is also a slight possibility that she was shot from a window of one of the houses backing onto the allotments.

Croydon Local Plan Review Consultation

The current Croydon Local Plan was published in 2018, but following the Council’s declaration of a Climate Emergency in July 2019, a partial review was launched.

During the first stage of the review, a period of consultation took place between November 2019 and January 2020, to gain feedback from the community. This was referred to as the ‘Issues and Options’ consultation.

Three strategic options were presented:

  • Option 1: described as ‘an environmental and economically sustainable option’, this required significant housing intensification throughout the borough.
  • Option 2: described as ‘an environmentally and socially sustainable option’, this consisted of a significant transformation of the Purley Way through major mixed-use redevelopment, alongside lower levels of intensification throughout the borough.
  • Option 3: described as ‘an economically and socially sustainable option’, this necessitated a limited release of green belt land.

Where are we now?

Following the initial public consultation, […]
