Welcome to the Coulsdon West Residents' Association,
        'Where Community Matters'

Our aim is to help residents in West Coulsdon, and make Coulsdon a great place to live.

We work in coordination with our sister RAs, as well as other local groups which share common interests, such as Friends of Rickman Hill Park.

To achieve our aims we need more general members as well as volunteers to join or assist the Committee.

We are stronger together.

Latest News

Another newsletter!

The 2022 Spring newsletter is available in digital form only, here (opens in new page).
We will place all newsletters on this page.

Mayoral and Local Council elections, 5th May

On the 5th May, we can vote for the councillors that we think will do the best job for us.
This year, for the first time (in Croydon), we will directly elect a mayor for the borough, independently from the party with the most council seats.

It may be useful to attend one of the many hustings events, to see the candidates in person, and to question them on their ideas and goals.

Please use your vote!

Help spread the Word!

Prior to the AGM in July, there will be a printed newsletter going to all members, and to as many eligible members as possible. There are about 4,000 households on our patch, and we only have around 250 members - so there is 'room for improvement'!
We desperately need new road stewards to get to know their neighbours, and to encourage them to sign up and join CWRA, whilst thrusting a newsletter at them!

Any ideas on how to achieve this, or assistance in delivering these newsletters, would be most welcome.

Planning

We are pleased to report that several unsightly and out-of-scale developments have recently been refused planning permission.
The Planning page is here.


Annual General Meeting

This year, we will be holding our AGM on Thursday, 7th July at 7:30
at the Community Centre, Barrie Close (off Chipstead Valley Road).

Please save the date!

The previous AGM was held on Thursday, 23rd September 2021, and was well attended, but we can always cope with more people! There may even be lashings of ginger beer and biscuits to tempt you to pitch up!

All of the relevant papers can be found on our AGM page here.


We engage with various people and bodies to campaign on behalf of our members, such as

Our MP, Chris Philp.
Our local councillors: Luke Clancy, Mario Creatura, Ian Parker.
Croydon Council's planning department.
Council officers.
Decision makers in the NHS.
The London Green Belt Council.
Transport For London (TFL).
The Road Users Forum.
The East Surrey Transport Committee.
The Neighbourhood Safety Team.
