Petition started against closure of Croydon Visitor Centre

I have started a petition against the closure of the Croydon Visitor Centre, which states:

‘We, the undersigned residents and workers of Croydon, call on the Council to discuss with Croydon BID the planned closure of the Croydon Visitor Centre on 1 May 2015, because of the closure’s detrimental effect on the image of Croydon and the ending of its range of services which helped 150,000 visitors in 2013/14. We request the Council to discuss with the BID methods to finance the re-location and continuing operation of the Centre. Given the damage to the image of Croydon if the BID does not agree to find a way to keep the Centre open, the Council should consider withdrawing its support from the BID.’

The petition for signatures is downloadable here:

CVC Petition

I have also submitted the text to the Council for posting as a epetition.
