Has Tony Newman woken up to the need for allies over Government forced cuts?

‘yup hate the word summit but let’s have one A

SAP Croydon’s future still in our hands’ it

to would be up good to have a ‘summit’

– ‘Croydon’s future still in our hands’.

This is Tony Newman’s Twitter response on 26 November to a passionate appeal on the Matthews Yard website that the developers must be made to meet the real needs of Croydon.


So the big question Tony is given the Government enforced cuts and the weakness of the draft Local Plan in terms of reining in the developers, HOW?

‘Ongoing Cuts to Croydon Council funding by Govt outrageous & London’s affordable housing supply crisis not addressed by Osborne’s statement’
