Croydon Council has not made a single bid for Government funding in the south of the borough.
The Government currently has a total of £675 million available for local authorities like Croydon to bid on as part of its Future High Streets Fund.
However, Croydon Council has failed to make bids for funding to improve high streets in the south of the borough.
The Future High Streets Fund was set up by the Government at the end of 2018. It allows local authorities to bid for funding to improve their high streets and local town centres.
However, despite bidding for funding for three high streets across the north of the borough, no bids have been made in the south.
Croydon council is totally failing the high streets in the south of the borough.
The decision to not even bid for money that the Government is handing out completely lets down the businesses and residents based in the south of the borough.
I call on the council to provide a full explanation as to why it has chosen to neglect our area. They should govern for the whole borough, not just their own heartlands.
This Labour administration has repeatedly failed the south of the borough. It should reconsider its decision not to bid on the south of borough as soon as possible.
I will be happy to assist the council in any bids that help the south of the borough.
