The consultation period will run from Wednesday 8th May 2019 to Tuesday 25th June 2019 . As part of the consultation, Public Meetings will be held at The Timebridge Community Centre, Fieldway, New Addington, Croydon CR0 9AZ on:

  • Tuesday 11th June from 6pm to 8pm and
  • Wednesday 12th June from 9.30am to 11.30am
