Croydon Climate Crisis Commission Draft Recommendations Engagement
London Borough of Croydon From 20 Jan 2021  to 28 May 2021
Feedback due 28 May 2021
Why are we doing this?

The Croydon Climate Crisis Commission was launched in early 2020. The Commission’s primary purpose is to identify actions to drive rapid reductions in the carbon emissions from activities in the borough of Croydon. Critically, the Commission aims to ensure the transition to zero carbon happens in a fair way, providing good quality jobs, improving wellbeing, and reducing inequality.

The Commission is independent, and its membership brings together representatives from across the Croydon community.

Building on the work of the Citizen’s Assembly on Climate Change which reported in early 2020, the Commission has been working with a wide range of people who have come together to develop ideas to tackle climate change in Croydon. 

The Commission will be presenting their report to the Council in March 2020.

Following their declaration of a climate and ecological emergency in 2019 Croydon Council partnered with the New Economics Foundation to set up and support the Commission.  Please contact us if you would like to hear more about the work of the Commission.

Why are we doing this?

Our website is changing. Help us make sure it works for you!

We are part of Croydon Digital Service (CDS). We want our services to work for the people who use them — you, Croydon residents, council staff, Croydon businesses and potential visitors.

This means we need to know what you need, so that we can build services that meet those needs and make interacting with council services easier and faster.

One of our main projects is redesigning the council website.

Consultation on the Purley Way Masterplan
London Borough of Croydon From 09 Feb 2021  to 16 Mar 2021
Feedback due 30 Apr 2021
Why are we doing this?

Croydon residents can help shape a 20-year development vision for future homes, businesses and public spaces along Purley Way by answering a new online survey.

The Purley Way is one of the areas earmarked in the council’s Local Plan Review for future transformation and growth, including housing, jobs, improved transport access and more public open spaces and facilities.

The online survey gave an opportunity for residents, businesses and visitors to feedback on the proposals, and outline their priorities around sustainable growth for the Purley Way area, which stretches from the boundary with Purley up to Valley Park.

The council consultation included three online workshops in February and March, which gave the public a chance to participate in a presentation and Q&A workshop to discuss the proposals.

The feedback received from this five-week consultation, as well as early feedback last summer, will help to shape the final masterplan. This is an important step in the process to adopting the masterplan as a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) that will provide assurance and guidance for good growth to happen in the Purley Way area – growth that is sustainable and high quality, creating a resilient and vibrant place that enhances the area’s unique heritage.

Libraries consultation
London Borough of Croydon From 14 Jan 2021  to 14 Mar 2021
Feedback due 10 Apr 2021
Why are we doing this?

*Update* The consultation has been extended to 14 March to provide more time to have your say on our proposals. We have also launched a series of informative webinars that can answer frequently asked questions. More information on these webinars is available below.

If you have already submitted a survey response but have more comments to add, we are allowing multiple submissions.

Our library service is so much more than buildings and books. Since bringing our libraries in-house we have invested significantly in the service, upgrading the IT equipment and broadband making them more modern and inclusive community spaces. Members can now also access six million books through our membership of The Libraries Consortium, including 41,000 e-books, newspapers, magazines and training materials. Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic we’ve seen a major shift in the way people access our service and use digital collections, with 1,800 new online members.

The council is currently facing severe financial challenges, which means we will need to be clear about our priorities and make some tough decisions about what we will and won’t do over the next few years. Some services will stop and others, such as our library service, will have to change. But, by focussing on a smaller number of priorities for our residents, we will make sure that we are delivering good quality services, where they will have the biggest impact.

We are committed to delivering a comprehensive and efficient library service, which operates within the reduced resources available. This means that we are having to look at either closing some of our library buildings, or find an alternative that would not require any council funding.

The council currently runs 13 libraries in the borough, and we are proposing reducing this to eight. By doing this it will allow us to continue providing a comprehensive library service that meets the needs of our community.

When considering library buildings to include in our proposals we have looked at building operating and maintenance costs, how visitors use the service, and how close they are to other libraries - more details on this is provided in the fact sheets below.

At this stage of our consultation we want to hear your views on the proposals, ideas for our library service and suggestions for alternative ways we could use library buildings. We will use this information to help us further develop our options and consult you again on these, before taking a proposal to cabinet for a decision in summer 2021.

 

To request this information and questionnaire in a different format, email: librariesconsultation@croydon.gov.uk or call 020 7884 5159.

 

Please complete the survey below by 14 March.

 

You can complete the survey as many times as you like.

Consultation on Review of Cumulative Impact Zones: Statement of Licensing Policy
London Borough of Croydon From 30 Dec 2020  to 17 Feb 2021
Feedback due 26 Mar 2021
Why are we doing this?

Consultation on Review of Cumulative Impact Zones within the London Borough of Croydon’s Statement of Licensing Policy – statutory three year review of cumulative impact under Licensing Act 2003

In February 2018, the Council published its revised Statement of Licensing Policy under the Licensing Act 2003 (‘the Act’). A copy of the current document can be found at: Licensing Policy. The Council is not reviewing its Statement of Licensing Policy yet however, part of the Statement of Licensing Policy provides details of four specific areas within the borough which have been identified as Cumulative Impact Zones and we are seeking your views on cumulative impact as detailed below. 

A licensing authority may publish a document (“a cumulative impact assessment”) stating that the licensing authority considers that the number of relevant authorisations (such as premises licenses) in respect of premises (all premises or of a particular type) in one or more parts of its area described in the assessment is such that it is likely that it would be inconsistent with the authority's duty under the Licensing Act 2003 (Section 4(1)) to grant any further relevant authorisations in respect of premises in that part or those parts. A cumulative impact assessment must set out the evidence for the authority's opinion as set out in the cumulative impact assessment.

The four Cumulative Impact Zones (CIZ) in Croydon are areas where evidence has indicated that the number, type and density of licensed premises for off-sale consumption of alcohol (off sales) is having a detrimental impact on the licensing objectives.

The current Cumulative Impact Zones which include off licences, shops and supermarkets selling alcohol for consumption off the premises are as follows:

i.    Along the Brighton Road; South End; High Street, George Street corridor, from the Royal Oak Centre on Brighton Road, Purley to the junction of George Street and Cherry Orchard Road in Central Croydon 
ii    Along the London Road/Streatham High Road corridor, in 3 sections; from the junction of London Road and Tamworth Road in West Croydon to the j/w Canterbury Road; from the j/w Broughton Road to the j/w Melrose Avenue and; from the j/w Northborough Road to the borough boundary with London Borough of Lambeth 

iii    Along the Brigstock Road and High Street, Thornton Heath corridor, from the junction of Brigstock Road and London Road in Thornton Heath to the junction of High Street, Thornton Heath and Whitehorse Lane 

iv    Along the length of Central Parade, New Addington

Have your say on the proposed closure of Virgo Fidelis Convent Senior School
London Borough of Croydon From 12 Nov 2020  to 10 Dec 2020
Feedback due 25 Jan 2021
Why are we doing this?

Virgo Fidelis Convent Senior School is a Roman Catholic voluntary-aided secondary school for girls located in Upper Norwood. The school is part of the Archdiocese of Southwark’s educational provision in Croydon. The closure is being proposed by the school’s Interim Executive Board of Governors (IEB), with the support of the Archdiocese and Croydon Council.

The Virgo Fidelis IEB 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 is in significant deficit. Consequently the school is increasingly unable to deliver the broad and balanced curriculum that would be expected of a modern secondary school.

A pre-publication consultation took place from 1 October to 23 October in which stakeholders commented on the proposed closure. Sixty responses were received during this period which formed the basis of a consultation outcomes report presented to the interim executive director of children, families and education and the cabinet member for children, young people and learning to consider and decide whether to proceed to the next step and start the formal representation period. A copy of the consultation outcomes report can be found below.

Following approval, a formal consultation will now begin, allowing people to comment on or object to the council about the proposal to close the school.

The consultation will run until from 12 November - 10 December 2020.

All responses received will be analysed and used to create a formal consultation outcomes report which will be submitted to Croydon Council’s cabinet in January 2021 for a final decision on the proposal to close the school from August 2021.
