Oppose Bromley Police Merger with Croydon and Sutton
Bromley police are merging with Sutton and Croydon police. Combining Bromley, Croydon and Sutton would create a huge area which is is just too big for one unit to cover without their own dedicated resources. Local people are concerned that Bromley Police will spend too much time in Croydon and Sutton. Please sign the petition to show your opposition to this merger, our Police need your support to fight for more resources. SIGN THE PETITION HERE
Corner Ways Crossing Petition
There are no safe pedestrian crossings at the three-way junction by Corner Way Surgery. Local people do not feel safe crossing at the junction of Manor Rd, Bromley Rd and Wickham Rd. This is a busy pedestrian route with local people crossing for Corner Ways Surgery, the High Street, Beckenham Junction and Harris Beckenham Green School.
This junction is not safe for pedestrians and we demand that the Council urgently implement safe pedestrian crossings on this junction. SIGN THE PETITION HERE
Safe Junction Copers Cope Rd
Campaign for urgent road safety improvements at the junction of Copers Cope Rd and Southend Rd. This junction is notoriously dangerous for pedestrians, drivers and cyclists yet nothing has been done for years.
Not a day goes by where there is not a near miss of some sort. Official crashmap statistics show how dangerous the junction is in comparison to others. It is unacceptable to wait for a fatality before taking action. SIGN THE PETITION HERE
Safer to School | Safer for All
Families should have a safe journey to school. By making our roads safer to school we make them safer for all. Bromley Council’s insistence on waiting for KSI (Killed or SeriouslyInjured) statistics before taking action on dangerous roads is completely unacceptable.
Sign the pledge for:
- Traffic calming measures and safe crossing places on school routes.
- Prompt action to deal with road safety and traffic issues, on residential as well as main roads.
- A common sense Road Safety policy that listens to local people.
Copers Cope Crossing Petition
Copers Cope Road is a notorious rat run, plagued by speeding and anti-social motoring. There is not a single pedestrian crossing on this road despite it servicing a busy mainline train station, a bus route and nearby Worsley Bridge School. The junction by Park Road is particularly busy with pedestrians needing to cross for New Beckenham Station and to cross from the station and bus stop to walk to Worsley Bridge School. Local people find crossing at this junction dangerous. A proper pedestrian crossing is needed, that gives pedestrians right of way and requires traffic go slow down. Sign the petition here.
Village Way Crossing Petition
A safe crossing is urgently needed on Village Way (in central Beckenham) by the cut through to Kelsey Way for the Harris Schools. The junction of Village Way and Whitmore Road is a busy route for local children, parents, grandparents and childminders on their way to Harris Primary and Harris Secondary School on Manor Way. SIGN THE PETITION HERE.
Beckenham parents were shocked on 2 September when they turned up to their Baby Clinic at the Beacon to find it has been closed down without warning. The service had previously been run by Bromley Healthcare as part of the health visiting services but these services were moved to Oxleas trust on 1 October after the contract had quietly been put out to tender by the Council earlier this year. Unbelievably the new provider will not be providing this service at the Beacon or anywhere else in Beckenham. Parents will now need to travel to the Penge Community Vision Centre open for 1 session a week. Why didn’t Bromley Council stipulate that this Baby Clinics must remain at the Beacon as it is an essential service for young Beckenham families.
