Croydon's Green Image

Dingwall Road
As we all know, Croydon Council is very keen to promote its "green and environmentally friendly" image.

We are constantly being told by the council that Croydon is greener and cleaner. Unfortunately for the councilors, ensconced in their bunker in Katherine Street, reality is a cruel mistress and often serves to contradict their deluded claims.

A walk down Dingwall road, for example, should cure even the most deluded members of Council that their claim to have improved the image and environment of Croydon is nonsense.

Maybe that is why Dingwall Road has undergone something of a transformation in the last week?

You will recall that on one side of the road, the hapless residents of Croydon are presented with decaying and crumbling office buildings awash with graffiti and filth?

On the other side there is a vast wasteland which was, until last week, half hidden by a crumbling ugly concrete wall.

Good news, the wall has been knocked down and replaced by yet another display of the rapidly spawning hoardings that now seem to be the common feature of the Croydon landscape.

The hoardings have even been painted green, doubtless to reinforce the council's "green image", no less than three times in the last week; each coat being a darker shade of green, than the one before.

Some may be deluded into thinking that this is an attempt by Croydon Council, and its associates, to show that they really are improving the image of the borough.

Sadly no!

On the 4th of May this year the councilors face re-election, the hoardings and painting of the hoardings is nothing more than a cheap means of trying to convince the electorate that things in Croydon really are about to improve. This technique of covering up sites and areas that offend is usually employed by third world dictators.

It seems that the council have now descended to a new level.

Visit Dingwall Road - A Vision of Post Nuclear Croydon and take a walk down one of the main thoroughfares of Croydon.

CRACC Pledges To The People of Croydon

CRACC makes the following pledges to the people of Croydon:

  • CRACC will cut the current disgraceful levels of council tax.

  • CRACC will declare UDI for Croydon from London, thus saving the £36M charge from the Greater London Authority.

  • CRACC will vote against the closure of Crosfield.

  • CRACC will place council workers on the same level as the taxpayers and workers of Croydon, by abolishing the final salary pension scheme that the council enjoys at our expense.

  • CRACC will fast track urban redevelopment projects, eg the proposed arena development for Dingwall Road will be vetoed in favour of a more appropriate and speedier project.

  • CRACC will force new office developments to include well designed, aesthetically pleasing and functional/accessible public spaces in their designs (as is required in New York).

  • CRACC will fast track compulsory purchase orders on derelict properties that have lain idle for an excessive period of time.

  • CRACC will levy an extra tax on theme bars and nightclubs, to pay for the extra work put in by the police and other services in cleaning up the mess left behind by the patrons of these establishments.

  • CRACC will take proactive countermeasures to eradicate the unacceptable levels of street crime, and anti social behaviour that is ruining the borough. Those individuals convicted of such behaviour will be named and shamed and placed in public stocks.
