North End Face Lift

The Guardian report that new paving, tree planting and improved seating will be taking place in North End later this month. This is part of £240,000 improvements taking place in Croydon's main shopping street.

Improvements to the infrastructure are welcome, and indeed necessary.

However, what about addressing the decay and squalor that appears to been encroaching in the "no man's land" from where the nice paving stones stop and West Croydon begins?

It is almost as if there were an unseen border between the two areas, one well kept the other trashy, splitting Croydon into two.

You shouldn't split a city in two in this fashion.
