School Admissions
London Borough of Croydon From 12 Jan 2018  to 31 Jan 2018
Feedback due 30 Mar 2018
Why are we doing this?

A report from the Admissions Service was presented to the Schools Forum on 7 March 2016 demonstrating the impact on service delivery of the additional £100K the Forum agreed to fund the service.  The report recommendation was for the Admissions Service to undertake a survey with schools to assess performance which was accepted by the Forum.

The survey was published in the 2016 summer term with schools given until the end of term to complete it.

The survey results were presented at the Schools Forum on 2nd September 2016 with recommendations that a further survey take place the following year once some improvements had been established.

South Norwood Library is on the move!
London Borough of Croydon From 21 Nov 2017  to 24 Jan 2018
Feedback due 30 Mar 2018
Why are we doing this?

In 2019, South Norwood library is moving to a new central location, 24 Station Road, providing an opportunity to deliver a ‘library for the future’ in a purpose-built space. In this building, the new library will be all on one floor and users will have access to the same number of books as now as well as more computer and study spaces. This is part of Croydon’s wider plans to develop the service by equipping our libraries with the latest digital technology, in fit-for-purpose buildings, so that more people can benefit from what is on offer.

Why move the library?

The  move  follows a building survey on the existing library that estimates it requires some £420,000 of modernisation and repairs to keep it operational for the next 20 years. 

The current building, which operates on five levels, has never been accessible for all visitors and ongoing issues with the lift have restricted access for some people to parts of the library. The multilevel layout does not provide opportunities to make changes that would support the development of an enhanced range of library services.

What will change?

The new flexible, attractive design will provide opportunities for much-needed alternative use outside of existing library hours, such as community events and adult learning classes, at a cost of £500k.

The existing building will still belong to the council and its future use will be considered as part of the wider improvements to the area.

Health Visiting
London Borough of Croydon From 05 Dec 2017  to 19 Jan 2018
Feedback due 11 Feb 2018
Why are we doing this?

This survey is being undertaken to support a review of Croydon's health visiting service.

We would like to know about your experiences of Croydon’s health visiting service so that we can improve and develop the services we offer. 

If you have received the survey by email it is because you are registered with our Best Start Services in Croydon and we understand you have one or more children under the age of five.

We would very much appreciate it if you could take five minutes to complete the attached short survey about your experiences of the health visiting services in Croydon. The responses are anonymous and we cannot identify anyone from the answers.

Health visitors are the staff who see mothers and babies / children up to the age of 5. Someone from the health visiting team will usually visit you at home in the first two weeks after your baby is born.  You may also have seen them shortly before your baby was born.  The health visiting team will then often see you and your child, at home or in a clinic, until your child is four years old.

Your feedback would be invaluable to us in understanding how the service is supporting parents in Croydon.  We will let you know the results of the survey in the new year by sending you an email about our findings.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us on kayleigh.bourne@croydon.gov.uk

 

Many thanks in advance for your help

Have your say on the proposed reduction in Published Admission Number for the 2019/20 Academic Year.
London Borough of Croydon From 07 Nov 2017  to 20 Dec 2017
Feedback due 01 Feb 2018
Why are we doing this?

Croydon Council would welcome your views on the proposed reduction of Norbury Manor Primary, and Monks Orchard Primary Schools’ Published Admission Number (PAN) for the 2019/20 academic year as part of the community schools’ published admission arrangements (Appendix 1). The proposal is to reduce the PAN for Norbury Manor Primary School and Monks Orchard Primary School by one form of entry (1FE) – 30 Reception pupils each - from September 2019.

The Council is the Admission Authority for community schools and is therefore responsible for consulting on the reduction of community schools’ admission numbers, where necessary.

This consultation will run from 8 November 2017 to 20 December 2017.

 

For more details, please see the attached Consultation Document.

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

Have your say on the permanent closure of Coulsdon Nursery School
London Borough of Croydon From 22 Sep 2017  to 20 Oct 2017
Feedback due 30 Nov 2017
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.
