“When Croydon’s Labour council gave planning consent for a 17 floor skyscraper in Purley we were shocked. It would have really changed the character of the area and only had 20 unrestricted parking spaces for 220 flats. Chris led the campaign against the Skyscraper collecting 9,000 signatures. When the council ignored local people once again, Chris managed to persuade the Secretary of State to call in the application so that an independent Inspector can now review the whole thing. It is great that we have an effective MP like Chris who can do this kind of thing, and that’s why we’re backing Chris.” - Peter & Ann Davis - local residents, Coulsdon
