Have your say on Croydon's draft parking policy

Apr 8 2019 to May 5 2019
Parking, streets and transport

Parking affects almost everyone that lives, works or visits Croydon. The competition for road space from pedestrians, cyclists, vehicles and parking is growing, in particular in areas where new homes are being built and outside schools.

The draft parking policy sets out the aims and objectives for 2019 to 2022 for parking services; to manage the demand, improve air quality in Croydon by encouraging less reliance on cars and the use of lower emitting vehicles, and improving safety outside the borough’s schools.

Client Contributions / Charging Policy Questionnaire

Dec 17 2018 to Apr 30 2019
Not applicable

We want Croydon to be a healthy, safe and great place to live and we have duties as laid out in the legislation including the Care Act, 2014 to provide support to those who may need it and / or are eligible.

We want to ensure equity and fairness in the distribution of our resources and like all councils, we are finding it hard to balance the budget as national funding for council services reduces further and more people need care and support across the adult population.

In order to ensure we are supporting and protecting our most vulnerable residents we are exploring new ways to deliver services and address our financial challenges.

The purpose of the consultation is to hear your views on a number of changes we are proposing to make to our adult social care charging policy.  It is also important for us to understand how these proposed changes could impact you before making any decisions.

This consultation will help us to explore the impact of proposals to change the charging policy for adult social care. The consultation process helps the council understand the impact before making decisions and welcome your views.

The Chaffinch Brook catchment is a complex system of rivers and ordinary watercourses. While flooding cannot be completely prevented, in order to manage it better it is important to understand how and why it happens. AECOM, a consultancy is conducting a study on behalf of Croydon Council and Bromley Council that will look into the causes and impact of flooding. By collecting data about flood risk from people who live/work/visit the study area, we will endeavour to identify potentially affordable and viable solutions that could improve the management of the flood risk.

Community Toilet Scheme

Jan 18 2019 to Mar 15 2019
Community and life events

Under the current provision of toilets in the borough, there are two disability compliant toilets which also have baby changing facilities. We are proposing a community toilet scheme (CTS) that not only makes wider provision under the Equality Act 2010 but also provides more baby changing facilities. 

As part of a wider cost saving initiative the introduction of a community toilet scheme (CTS) would save the council around £75,000 per year.

Following the collapse of Carillion, the council has taken Croydon libraries back in-house, securing the long-term future of the library service and guaranteeing the jobs of all library staff.

We are making some immediate improvements to the way libraries are run, such as improving cleaning standards and ensuring that books and other resources are chosen locally by our customers and staff in order to better meet local need.

 The Upper Norwood Library Hub is run through a different arrangement to the rest of the libraries in Croydon and was not included in the outsourced arrangement with Carillion. The library service in the hub is jointly-funded by Lambeth Council and Croydon Council and the library service is provided by Lambeth. The building is occupied by the Upper Norwood Library Trust, a charitable organisation supported by Croydon and Lambeth Councils. There are no plans to change this arrangement.

Health Visiting

Dec 5 2017 to Jan 19 2018
Health and social care

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

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.

Statement of Licensing policy consultation

Oct 2 2017 to Nov 13 2017
Leisure and culture

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

Croydon town centre Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) consultation August 2017

Aug 30 2017 to Oct 15 2017
Community and life events, Environment

A PSPO allows the council and the police to introduce new measures to reduce street drinking and antisocial behaviour which we believe will help to improve this public space for the wider community.

The PSPO will replace the existing Town Centre Controlled Drinking Zone (also known as Designated Public Place Orders) which puts restrictions on street drinking.  

What  will happen to the information you receive?

The consultation responses received from residents and those who visit, work or study in the town centre, will be analysed and used as part of the council’s decision making process at the Cabinet meeting to be held on 20 November 2017.

What is a Public Space Protection Order (PSPO)?
PSPOs were created by the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, (section 59) to replace existing legislation and to introduce wider discretionary powers to deal with any particular nuisance or problem that is detrimental to the local community’s quality of life.

The legislation is intended to ensure that the law-abiding majority can use and enjoy public spaces, safe from anti-social behaviour.

The law requires the order must be in writing, and it must be published. Reasonable signage must also be put up in the area.

A breach of the PSPO is a criminal offence, which can be dealt with, either by way of a fixed penalty notice (FPN) of £80 or prosecution. If prosecuted, an individual could be liable to a fine no higher than £1,000. Only those aged over 18 or over can be issued with a FPN.

How is a PSPO put in place?

The test for issuing the order, is when the local authority believes that ongoing anti-social behaviour harms the local community’s quality of life, will be ongoing, or happens regularly, and that the impact is such, that restrictions should be put in place. Any future changes to the order will require further consultation.

Crime and anti-social behaviour statistics

We analysed crime and anti-social behaviour data for the financial year 2016/17, and identified over 3,220 confirmed crimes within the proposed PSPO area.

39% of the violent offences occurred in North End and the High Street, and 33% of all criminal damage offences recorded within the proposed PSPO area, also occurred in these two locations.

597 calls to the police regarding anti-social behaviour were recorded during this period, of which 370 (62%), were classified as rowdy or inconsiderate behaviour.  31% of the calls to the police for this type of rowdy or inconsiderate behaviour were also linked to North End and the High Street.

We also know that street drinking has a negative effect on the general public and that this type of behaviour is under recorded.
