Chris Philp, Croydon South MP, campaign on planning issues in Croydon

https://www.chrisphilp.com/end-croydons-planning-blight-now

Many of his campaign suggestions are ones that cross the political party divide, because there are many Labour Party and anti-Tories who are also concerned about the way Croydon is operating planning.

Council Governance Review and Planning

Philp is correctly promoting lobbying the Council’s Governance Review:

‘There is currently a review of Croydon Council’s Governance run by Dame Moira Gibb. Please email her directly explaining your views about how the council currently handles planning applications (i.e. often ignores residents etc) and asking Dame Moira to recommend Area Planning Committees in Croydon. Her email address is: moira.gibb@crinanhoward.com.’

So far I have seen no publicity about the review and how to contact Dame Gibb. So a big thanks to Philp.
