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.

Parks and Greenspaces in a COVID-19 Landscape
London Borough of Croydon From 05 Aug 2020  to 13 Sep 2020
Feedback due 30 Sep 2020
Why are we doing this?

One consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic is the spotlight highlighting the importance of access to and use of local parks and greenspaces. When considered in conjunction with the pre-COVID-19 growing interest in the role these greenspaces can play in Climate Crisis mitigation, there is now far greater and wider awareness of the value they provide to society as a whole. A number of broad scale surveys are being conducted to understand how the pandemic is changing use and perception of these greenspaces, however a short Croydon-specific data gathering exercise will provide verifiable insight which will be of use to Council officers who are planning for a future for these greenspaces post-COVID-19.

The survey outcomes identified below will provide baseline data on use of these greenspaces as well as some light-touch resident perceptions on how these greenspaces are being managed now and what they could look like in the future. Given the financially restrictive position the Council is in, it will be important to prioritise what investment is possible whilst also maintaining realistic expectations across the political and public spheres.

Proposal to extend the age range at St Giles School
London Borough of Croydon From 24 Feb 2020  to 31 Mar 2020
Feedback due 29 May 2020
Why are we doing this?

We would like to hear your views on our proposal to extend the age range at St Giles School from 4 - 19 years to 2 - 19 years from September 2020.

Extending the age range at St Giles School will allow for specialist education for children with profound and multiple learning difficulties, physical sensory medical needs from 2 years old. The proposal suggests the management of the specialist nursery class Crosfield Rainbow Group is transferred to St Giles School.  This will provide a clearer pathway from early years to school years for children in specialist education.
