The hoarding around the tower is to enable essential health and safety works. The turret at the top of the tower is not secure and needs urgent attention. The hoarding has been built far enough out from the tower in case anything falls from high up. We do not yet have a time frame for the work but understand the hoarding will be in place for several months.
EAST CROYDON MEDICAL CENTRE IS MOVING
The East Croydon Medical Centre in Addiscombe Road will be moving shortly to new temporary premises in Edridge Road – by the fly-over. This will enable building work to start at the site in Addiscombe Road. This is expected to take up to a year. Patients at the practice will be sent details of the changes shortly. The move is expected to take place in mid-April.
COMMUNICATIONS MAST, 4 DEEPDENE AVENUE
WHP Telecoms are seeking to erect a communications mast 20m high adjacent to no 4 Deepdene Avenue. We have objected to this. The mast would be wholly out of keeping with the surrounding area. The trees around the site are 9-10m high compared with the 20m proposed for the mast. It would moreover seriously affect the outlook from no 4 Deepdene Avenue and its amenities.
