Public Space Protection Order
London Borough of Croydon From 12 Oct 2020  to 08 Nov 2020
Feedback due 30 Nov 2020
Why are we doing this?

A Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) prohibits specific behaviours and activities within a defined area so that people can enjoy public spaces without experiencing particular nuisance or annoyance. PSPOs help the council to work in partnership with the police to tackle specific issues in designated areas.

Breaching a PSPO can result in a fine and could also lead to legal prosecution.

The council's existing PSPOs are about to expire and there are three that we are proposing to keep. They are:

  • Croydon town centre
  • Thornton Heath
  • Boroughwide dog control

Each PSPO has specific behaviour prohibitions and restrictions that we propose to include in this PSPO. We have included these within our survey and would like to hear if you think we have selected the right conditions and if there are any other issues that should be considered.

The current PSPOs in New Addington and South Norwood are due to expire, and we have made a decision, based on the data we have available, not to renew them. We will continue to work with our partners such as the police and VCS organisations to tackle issues impacting those communities.

Consultation on the proposed closure of Virgo Fidelis Convent High School
London Borough of Croydon From 01 Oct 2020  to 23 Oct 2020
Feedback due 18 Jan 2021
Why are we doing this?

Virgo Fidelis is a Roman Catholic voluntary-aided secondary school for girls, located in Upper Norwood. It is part of the Archdiocese of Southwark’s education provision in the London Borough of Croydon. The closure is being proposed by the school’s Interim Executive Governing Board (IEGB), with the support of the Archdiocese and Croydon Council.

Consultation responses will be presented to the cabinet member for children, young people and learning and the council’s executive director for children, families and education. Subject to their approval, this consultation will be followed by the publication of the statutory notice, which will start a four-week representation period when any person can send objections or comments to Croydon Council.

The Virgo Fidelis IEGB is proposing the school’s closure because they believe that it is no longer viable – a view which is shared by the Archdiocese and the council. The majority of the buildings are in poor repair and unfit for purpose, with Year 10 pupils having to be taught at an alternative site. In addition, the pupil roll has fallen consistently over the past several years and the school budget has been in deficit. Consequently the school is increasingly unable to deliver the broad and balanced curriculum that would be expected of a modern secondary school.

Earlier this year Virgo Fidelis took the decision, with the support of the Office of the Schools Adjudicator, to suspend admissions for September 2020. Incoming year 7 pupils were offered alternative places at Notre Dame High School, another all-girls Roman Catholic School within the Archdiocese of Southwark.

Should the proposed closure be approved, pupils who are currently in Years 8 and 9 at Virgo Fidelis will be offered alternative places at other schools from September 2021.  Year 10 Virgo Fidelis students are currently being taught on the site of St Mary’s Catholic Secondary School in Croydon, due to the condition of the buildings on the Virgo Fidelis site. Should the closure of Virgo Fidelis be approved, these pupils will be enrolled as St Mary’s pupils for Year 11, remaining in a single-sex location away from the rest of the school. 

Current Year 11 pupils will have completed their GCSE examinations in July 2021, before the proposed closure of the school is August 2021.

Croydon Council and the Archdiocese of Southwark will work together to seek to redeploy all Virgo Fidelis staff, or as many as possible, into alternative positions in other schools locally.

Proposed introduction of emission-based parking charges
London Borough of Croydon From 01 Oct 2020  to 22 Oct 2020
Feedback due 31 Dec 2020
Why are we doing this?

We are proposing to introduce emission-based charges to all on-street and car park pay and display bays within the borough.

Revising parking charges according to vehicle emissions became council policy in 2019 with an aim of reducing the damaging impact air pollution has on public health and encouraging residents’ to help reduce harmful emissions in the borough.

The proposal also includes changing the 30min and one-hour free pay and display parking bays in our district centres to two-hour maximum charged parking, to bring them in line with the emission-based charges and encourage more residents to walk and cycle to their local high streets.

If introduced, parking charges for zero emission vehicles would be reduced by about 90%, while charges for the highest emission vehicles would be increased by 30%. The charges would come into effect in January 2021. The proposed emission band charges are detailed in the public notices below.

This proposal is the last phase of Croydon’s emission-based parking charges following the introduction of emission-based charging for resident, business and parking permits in the last year.

The proposal supports feedback we've had from our communities who have told us that they are concerned about air quality, and that traffic levels should be reduced*. We are also working to a number of national, regional and local aims of reducing emissions. The full list of these initiatives can be found in the report paper below.

*A survey on the future of transport for the draft third Local Implementation Plan (LIP3) in September 2018 found that 74% of respondents are concerned about air quality in Croydon and 72% agreed that traffic levels should be lowered.

South London waste plan
London Borough of Croydon From 04 Sep 2020  to 22 Oct 2020
Feedback due 31 Jan 2021
Why are we doing this?

 

The South London Waste Plan (adopted 30 January 2012) sets out the spatial issues and objectives to be met in waste management for the next ten years up to 2022. It is a joint development plan document (DPD) and covers the geographical area comprising the London Borough of Croydon, the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames, the London Borough of Merton and the London Borough of Sutton. It contains policies to guide the determination of planning applications for waste facilities and identifies existing waste sites to be safeguarded and areas where waste facility development may be suitable.

The South London waste plan is part of the development plan for Croydon's local plan programme. It is in conformity and should be read alongside with the policies of the Croydon Local Plan 2018.

The South London Waste Plan is currently being updated.  A draft South London Waste Plan has been published for comments to be made. It sets out the proposed strategy of Croydon, Kingston, Merton and Sutton councils for the location of waste facilities and how planning applications will be decided. The new South London Waste Plan when adopted will cover a 15 year planning period from 2021-2036.

Publishing the draft South London Waste Plan is a formal stage in the statutory process of preparing a new Waste Plan. All comments made will be sent to a Planning Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State who will consider whether changes need to be made to the draft South London Waste Plan to make it ‘sound’.

The Fair Field public space
London Borough of Croydon From 28 Feb 2020  to 25 Sep 2020
Feedback due 25 Sep 2020
Why are we doing this?

The Fair Field is an ambitious multi-million pound scheme to build a world-class public space in the heart of Croydon’s emerging cultural quarter. It will provide a stunning setting for the newly-refurbished Fairfield Halls, improve links with the rest of the town centre and create a destination space for communities and visitors alike.

Also known as College Green or Fairfield Gardens, the public space is only moments away from East Croydon station and the civic heart of Croydon around the Town Hall and Queens Gardens. It is part of an important network of existing and future public spaces in the town centre being delivered through private and council-led projects.

The project, scheduled for completion in 2022, sits alongside plans to transform the wider area into a cultural quarter with a new residential community. The council’s private development company, Brick by Brick, is leading on some of the area’s residential components.

The proposal for the Fair Field public space builds on the heritage of the area. It responds to the council’s brief which called for an innovative design that integrates water, public art, and lighting.

Proposals have now been submitted for planning and a decision is expected in the Autumn.

Drug and alcohol misuse (substance misuse) in Croydon survey August 2020
London Borough of Croydon From 10 Jul 2020  to 18 Sep 2020
Feedback due 02 Oct 2020
Why are we doing this?

Survey on drug and alcohol misuse (substance misuse) in Croydon August 2020

Croydon Council has commissioned research into drug and alcohol misuse (substance misuse) in the borough.  Like every London borough, Croydon has problems related to substance misuse (data sourced from the National Drug Treatment Monitoring System that provides borough by borough data on substance misuse:   https://www.ndtms.net/ )

This survey is part of a process that is aimed at improving both local substance misuse treatment services and the wider response to substance misuse, for example, education, prevention and crime reduction.

This survey is asking for your thoughts and opinions.   It is completely anonymous and does not ask you anything about yourself.  This information will be put together with statistical data on what is happening in Croydon, the views of those who work with substance misusers and with the thoughts of substance misusers and their families.  The data and feedback will be used to draw up plans for a new local contract for substance misuse services and other changes that will help to reduce the impact that drugs and alcohol have on Croydon.

These changes will be aimed at improving the help available to people who have alcohol or drug problems, but also reducing the impact on families and the whole community of Croydon.

Results and findings of the survey will be shared with our stakeholders such as cabinet members, senior management and those involved in planning and commissioning substance misuse services.   They will also be shared with our partners in, for example, the health service.  The report from this research will be made available to the public via the Get involved engagement platform.

We look forward to hearing your thoughts and opinions.
