Sent to Croydon Council today:
"Yesterday I, and I assume other residents living in Croydon, received another expensively produced colour 4 page propaganda sheet outlining the benefits of the Arrowcroft/Croydon Council proposal for the Gateway site.
It was remarkably "economical with the actualite", eg it scrupulously refuses to mention that Stanhope own the gateway site and have a rival plan for it.
The propaganda sheet notes that Arrowcroft are in "partnership with Croydon Council", and makes liberal references to Croydon Council.
I assume that the wording and layout has been approved by the council prior to distribution.
I have a number of questions:
1 Did the council pass on my address details, and the address details of other residents, to Arrowcroft?
2 How much does this regular propaganda sheet cost to produce?
3 Who is paying for it, Arrowcroft or Croydon council (ie the taxpayers)?
I look forward to hearing from you.
