Happy Valley, Coulsdon – Consultation

Date Filed:  Wednesday, October 04, 2017


The council has recently published a consultation on the future of Happy Valley in Coulsdon. This is one of Croydon’s most beautiful places – it feels like, and is, open countryside. I go running there pretty much every week.

The consultation suggests installing a caravan park, holding concerts and starting to charge for parking. In my view, all this would spoil what should stay as a natural place. The council want to try to make some money from Happy Valley. If they can’t afford to maintain it, then perhaps it would be better if the council transfers responsibility for looking after Happy Valley to a body like the Corporation of London – which does a good job maintaining Farthing Downs and Coulsdon Common next door, funded by its very large endowment.
If you would like to respond to the consultation we have until 10th October and the link is here:
