Have your say on Croydon's landlord licensing scheme
London Borough of Croydon From 16 Dec 2019  to 09 Mar 2020
Feedback due 30 Apr 2020
Why are we doing this?

In 2015 we introduced a borough-wide, five-year landlord licensing scheme which will end on 30 September 2020. Following a paper to cabinet in October we are now consulting on proposals to continue to license private rented properties in Croydon. Consultation closes 11.59pm Monday 9 March.

Since the introduction of the current selective licensing scheme, a new law has come in requiring councils to gain permission from Government for any new landlord licensing schemes covering more than 20% of a borough. The proposed scheme must be supported by evidence for how it meets the criteria for landlord licensing.

Before making a decision about whether to submit our application to government, we want to understand the views of our residents, businesses, private tenants, landlords and all other Croydon groups on our proposals and their possible impacts.

Are you a child or young person in Croydon?

Do you work with children and young people?

Do you have ideas about how the council and its partners could work better with children and young people, and our communities?

Would you like to have your say? We would like to hear from you!

The draft Children, Young People and Families Plan sets out proposed outcomes and priorities that we, the council, along with our partners will focus on. The ultimate aim of the plan is to ensure good life outcomes for all children and young people across the whole borough.

It's been developed after speaking with some of our children, young people, families and partners in Croydon, and includes three key outcomes and six supporting priorities that we feel would address some of the key challenges we face as a borough. Now we want to hear if you think we’ve got it right.

This public consultation is now open until Wednesday 4th March 2020.

Why are we doing this?

Do you have a creative idea for how Croydon’s subways could be transformed?

Students, community groups, artists, architects, and more all submitted dozens of creative ideas for how the six subways in our town centre could be put to better use. Our expert panel has now selected the short-listed entries in each of the three categories: professional, non-professional, and under-18s.

Now we want to hear from you! Please give us your feedback in this survey on as many or as few of the ideas as you wish. Your comments will be given to the judging panel, and will be considered when selecting a winner.

Once the winners are selected, ideas will be reviewed to see if they are viable. We will then work with the winning and /or shortlisted individuals or groups to see if we can bring these ideas to life.

The deadline for public feedback is 23 February. A full list of entries is available as a PDF on our webpage.

Following a review of homelessness in Croydon during late 2018, we have produced the Homelessness Prevention and Rough Sleeping Strategy for Croydon 2019-2022. This short-term strategy sets out our priorities for preventing homelessness over the next three years with a focus on six themes:

  • Engagement and early intervention
  • Homelessness prevention
  • Sustainable accommodation
  • Support outcomes
  • Rough sleeping
  • Young people

For each theme we've highlighted what we want to achieve, how we are going to do it and how we will measure success, as well as an action plan for the direction and delivery of the strategy.

Employer Recruitment of Disabled People Survey
London Borough of Croydon From 01 Aug 2019  to 31 Dec 2019
Feedback due 31 Jan 2020
Why are we doing this?

In the UK, there is legislation and a national campaign to facilitate the recruitment of disabled people (Equality Act 2010 and the Disability Confident Campaign respectively).  However, there is still a large percentage gap between the employment rate for disabled  people, which currently stands at 51.5% and non-disabled  people which stands at 81.7%.  The 30% difference gap has been around this mark for the last few years.  There are well documented barriers to employment and there seems to be a couple of main drivers for an employer to recruit disabled  people - either a legislative approach and/or a quota approach depending on the country that you live in.

The purpose of this survey is to research, from an employer's point of view, what works well from an international perspective, about the recruitment of disabled people.  It will help to understand what the barriers or concerns are as well as the motivators or legal requirements are from an employer's point of view.

By understanding what works well locally, nationally and internationally, we can look to take this information collected and learn from employers about what their needs and requirements are.

I would really appreciate your support by completing this survey, which will take less than 5 minutes of your time so that I can hear your views.

Many thanks
