Statement of Licensing policy consultation
London Borough of Croydon From 02 Oct 2017  to 13 Nov 2017
Feedback due 12 Jan 2018
Why are we doing this?

The council is the licensing authority for the Licensing Act 2003 (‘the Act’). One of the council’s duties under this Act is to publish a policy statement, setting out how it will exercise its functions under the Act, to ensure the licensing objectives are promoted, which are:

  • prevention of crime and disorder
  • public safety
  • prevention of public nuisance
  • protection of children from harm

The policy covers the following licensable activities:

  • retail sale of alcohol
  • supply of alcohol by or on behalf of a club
  • provision of regulated entertainment
  • provision of late-night refreshment (between 11pm and 5am)

Why we are consulting?

The Council is required to review and republish its policy every 5 years, but it can also review within that period if it so wishes.

Our current policy was reviewed in 2013 and would have to be reviewed in 2018, however, we have made a decision to review the policy earlier, as there are some changes we wish to make now as we want the policy to better reflect the aspirations we have for Croydon as a place and a destination of choice.

What are the principal proposed changes to the policy?

  • Removing the specific town centre special policy (cumulative impact zone) regarding ‘premises used exclusively or primarily for the sale/supply of alcohol and/or loud amplified recorded music’ – this effectively relates to pubs & bars and is no longer considered relevant/necessary as the concentration of such premises in the town centre has reduced since this special policy was first introduced in 2004
  • Removing specific reference to the Police 696 risk assessment form – though licence applicants/holders are still being recommended to carry out risk assessments

Why are we doing this?

We want to provide the best nursery places to meet the needs of local families. We believe the permanent closure of Coulsdon Nursery School and re-providing the places in brand new accommodation at Chipstead Valley Primary School allows us to achieve this in an environment that is purpose built and flexible to best meet children’s needs.

Croydon town centre Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) consultation August 2017
London Borough of Croydon From 30 Aug 2017  to 15 Oct 2017
Feedback due 20 Nov 2017
Why are we doing this?

A PSPO allows the council and the police to introduce new measures to reduce street drinking and antisocial behaviour which we believe will help to improve this public space for the wider community.

The PSPO will replace the existing Town Centre Controlled Drinking Zone (also known as Designated Public Place Orders) which puts restrictions on street drinking.  

What  will happen to the information you receive?

The consultation responses received from residents and those who visit, work or study in the town centre, will be analysed and used as part of the council’s decision making process at the Cabinet meeting to be held on 20 November 2017.

What is a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO)?
PSPOs were created by the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, (section 59) to replace existing legislation and to introduce wider discretionary powers to deal with any particular nuisance or problem that is detrimental to the local community’s quality of life.

The legislation is intended to ensure that the law-abiding majority can use and enjoy public spaces, safe from anti-social behaviour.

The law requires the order must be in writing, and it must be published. Reasonable signage must also be put up in the area.

A breach of the PSPO is a criminal offence, which can be dealt with, either by way of a fixed penalty notice (FPN) of £80 or prosecution. If prosecuted, an individual could be liable to a fine no higher than £1,000. Only those aged over 18 or over can be issued with a FPN.

How is a PSPO put in place?

The test for issuing the order, is when the local authority believes that ongoing anti-social behaviour harms the local community’s quality of life, will be ongoing, or happens regularly, and that the impact is such, that restrictions should be put in place. Any future changes to the order will require further consultation.

Crime and anti-social behaviour statistics

We analysed crime and anti-social behaviour data for the financial year 2016/17, and identified over 3,220 confirmed crimes within the proposed PSPO area.

39% of the violent offences occurred in North End and the High Street, and 33% of all criminal damage offences recorded within the proposed PSPO area, also occurred in these two locations.

597 calls to the police regarding anti-social behaviour were recorded during this period, of which 370 (62%), were classified as rowdy or inconsiderate behaviour.  31% of the calls to the police for this type of rowdy or inconsiderate behaviour were also linked to North End and the High Street.

We also know that street drinking has a negative effect on the general public and that this type of behaviour is under recorded.

Croydon local plan - main modifications consultation
London Borough of Croydon From 14 Sep 2017  to 10 Oct 2017
Feedback due 17 Nov 2017
Why are we doing this?

The Croydon Local Plan which sets out the borough’s growth and development vision over the next 20 years has taken another positive step forward.

Earlier this year, the Secretary of State appointed an independent planning inspector to lead the examination of the Croydon Local Plan, which included holding a number of examination hearings in public on the plan documents.

The inspector has now outlined changes which must be consulted on before the plan can be adopted, subject to the inspector’s final report. Consultation on the proposed main modifications made by the inspector will run from 29 August to 10 October inclusive

Croydon's parks vision
London Borough of Croydon From 30 Jul 2017  to 10 Oct 2017
Feedback due 30 Sep 2017
Why are we doing this?

Our vision for Croydon parks is to see them used, enjoyed and managed in ways never seen before in the borough. To achieve this we need to improve them, make them appealing to wider communities and manage them at less or no cost to the council.

We’ve identified six parks, each representing a different type of open space, to be pilots for new approaches to how parks are managed and used.

The six parks are:

  • Ashburton Park
  • Park Hill Recreation Ground
  • Lloyd Park
  • South Norwood Lake
  • Norbury Park
  • Happy Valley

Tyréns, an urban planning and landscape design team, with experience in community-driven projects, will produce a masterplan for each of the six parks. Plans will include ways to make them more user friendly and attractive, and will include ideas about how we maintain them.

When producing the plans, Tyréns will take into consideration;

  • What people like or dislike about the park.
  • The park layout including shape and appearance.
  • Opportunities for new venues, activities or cultural events.
  • Ideas to improve what the parks currently offer e.g. accessibility, facilities, planting.
  • Options for how the parks could be funded differently and maintained in the future.
  • How local communities can become more involved in their parks.

The findings from the pilots will help the council to make the most of all Croydon’s parks and green spaces, and will inform decisions relating to improvements, future use, funding and management.

Fiveways in Waddon - Consultation
London Borough of Croydon From 10 Jul 2017  to 18 Sep 2017
Feedback due 31 Dec 2017
Why are we doing this?

Transport for London  and Croydon Council have published proposals to make Fiveways in Waddon simpler and safer for all road users. 

This proposed major improvement would provide a safer and more direct route for road users through the area while helping to reduce delays and congestion. The area would be made more welcoming with easier and safer pedestrian access across the A23 Purley Way.  The changes would also improve bus journey times - delivering a better service on routes moving more than 9,000 passengers a day.
