Efforts to erect a ‘Welcome to Coney Hall’ sign on the Croydon Road have hit a brick wall after Transport for London – who are responsible for the road – refused permission.
TfL say they are seeking to keep street clutter to a minimum and don’t want to set a precedent by allowing such new signage on their network.
Not content with this response, we have now approached our London Assembly Member James Cleverly to fight the corner for Coney Hall.
However, other more local efforts to improve Coney Hall continue, with proposals for new planters, a notice board and street trees progressing with the support of your local Conservative councillors. All this is in addition to the Christmas Lights that were unveiled late last year with the efforts of the recently formed traders’ association.
