A big thank you to Dwayne and Cynthia of Caribbean Dreads Unisex Salon for hosting our consultation on the Portland Road Bridge lighting project on Wednesday 1 May. Their salon is a familiar landmark on the junction with Clifford Road and proved an inspired location for the event. We had over 30 visitors who were able to compare the designs with a view of the bridge as it is today from the door of the salon.
Caribbean Dreads opened their salon at 2 Portland Road in 2013, specialising in the locking of natural hair. This was a great opportunity to step inside and see the salon. Dwayne and Cynthia were very welcoming hosts and were delighted to be part of a project so close to where they are based.
Croydon Council continued the consultation at the Clock Tower Market on Saturday 4 May. We’ll update you soon on the designs presented, the results of the consultation and what happens next. Watch this space!
