Croydon is taking major steps towards becoming London’s greenest borough by appointing the first chair of the Climate Crisis Commission to help deliver a sustainable Croydon.
Residents will soon benefit from more than 300 spaces in new secure cycle storage areas across the borough as part of a council drive to encourage sustainable journeys.
From today, Tuesday 1 October, residents’ annual parking permits are charged on a sliding scale depending on how polluting their vehicle is. There are substantial discounts available for the greenest cars, while drivers with more polluting vehicles will have to pay more.
Croydon is leading from the front in an effort to tackle the impending climate and ecological emergency with plans to set up a citizens’ assembly to help guide environmental work in the borough.
A £250,000 fund has been set up to help a range of sustainable initiatives across Croydon as the council works to make it London’s greenest borough.
As part of Croydon’s ambition to become London’s greenest borough hundreds of dockless electric bicycles will be arriving to offer residents and visitors new greener ways to travel.
