to the website of Croham Valley Residents’ Association.
The Association was set up in the early 1970s for the benefit of the local residents in the Croham area. It is a small organisation run by the local residents to provide information and support as needed. We produce a quarterly newsletter to all members and look forward to the continued support of all the local residents.

Spring 2022 Newsletter
may want your Mayoral candidates to be putting forward to try to help us manage how our area develops over the next few years. It is four days before the Mayoral Election.
We also include a map from the sale particulars of the “Ballards and Heathfield Estate” in 1919. It is quite something to think that most of the area of the CVRA was owned by one individual just over 100 years ago. How times have changed.
To receive future newsletter please let us have your email.
The past 2 years have been extraordinarily difficult for everyone.
We have seen how difficult times truly bring out the best of us. There was an increased number of
people informally volunteering with acts of kindness to support their
community. Now that we hope we are gradually living with our new normal,
we would like to stay connected, help out and become a stronger and more
connected community than ever before.
We are exploring new ideas to build a stronger community where we could meet, grow friendships, and feel supported to make the best of living in our Croham Valley area. We would like to get your thoughts about how we could do this.
Please would you give us 5 minutes of your time to fill in a short questionnaire, here?

South Croydon Traffic & Roads Survey
Vast majority of the residents of these roads feel that there is too much speeding going on. In addition the majority also felt that there was too much “through traffic”.
The bad news is that the residents are not sure what should be done abut it. There is no majority for any of the “Low Traffic Neighbourhood” type restrictions. The reason this is bad news is that the Council, as far as I am aware, is not offering any concrete alternatives.There are no plans for speed cameras leading to fines on residential roads so we are stuck.
