Croydon Talks Parks

Sep 5 2016 to Oct 31 2016
Community and life events, Education and learning, Environment, Health and social care, Leisure and culture, Planning and regeneration

 

Within a borough that prides itself on balancing work and life, there should be plenty of opportunities for everyone to get involved, however casually in the ‘Croydon scene’ or simply take some time to enjoy the fun on offer.

The vision for Croydon’s parks and spaces is to ensure that these highly valued assets are maintained for future generations and we aim to achieve this by moving away from the traditional models of delivery. We have big ideas for the future of our parks:

  • We want to continue to enable volunteers and friends of parks groups to participate, shape and even take over the management of assets in parks where they have the commitment to do so
  • We want to continue to use our parks and open spaces to encourage healthier lifestyles
  • We want our parks and open spaces to provide the space for exciting cultural events that can be enjoyed by residents and visitors to our borough

Our parks have so much potential and we want to know what you think!

  • The Coningsby PRU;

  • Cotelands PRU, which includes Springboard Tuition Service.

Have your say on changes to our housing register rules and priorities

Jun 14 2016 to Jul 10 2016
Housing

The council wishes to engage with residents, existing social housing tenants, housing associations, voluntary and community groups to find out what they think of its proposals to reduce homelessness.

We are proposing to change the following in relation to Croydon's housing register:

  1. To give a higher priority to people that respond to help offered by the Council's Gateway & Welfare Service to prevent their homelessness. For example, by accepting an offer of private rented accommodation and receiving support, and avoiding long stays in temporary accommodation.
     
  2. Ensure that council and housing association homes are given to people that have lived in the borough for at least three years (the current rule is one year) unless exempt.
     
  3. Introduce an online bidding system for council and housing association homes, called "Choice Based Lettings". This would mean that people that have applied for housing and placed on the waiting list would "bid" for homes online rather than waiting for the council to make them an offer of a new home.  Choice based lettings enables people to make decisions over where they live, to exercise choice, and help promotes community cohesion. 

To take part in this engagement, please follow the link to the survey below.

The responses we receive will be analysed and will inform the consultation which will assist the Council in deciding whether or not the proposals to change the housing waiting list rules are amended and/or into practice.

You can find a summary of the current housing waiting list rules here.

You can download a copy of the current housing waiting list rules (the Council's Housing Allocations Scheme) here

If you need any of the information or the questionnaire in a different format, please call 020 8726 6100 or email hsg-rehousing@croydon.gov.uk

Ashburton Park and the Pavilion - Share your views

Feb 22 2016 to Mar 21 2016
Business and investment, Community and life events, Education and learning, Environment, Health and social care, Leisure and culture, Planning and regeneration, Public services

The Council wants to revitalise Ashburton Park and breathe new life into this Historic Park and Garden. We aim to re-establish Ashburton Park as an inclusive, accessible and vibrant Village Green, one which celebrates the heritage and character of the local area, the parks environment and its historic buildings. This will be delivered through improvements to the grounds and renovation of important park assets like the locally listed former convent/library, the Lodge and kiosk pavilion, in order to bring these buildings back into use, to add more diversity and vitality to the park.


Rejuvenating this 18½ acres Park will help it to become a key destination, offering a broad choice of leisure and recreational activities and events, supported by good quality open space, better facilities and refurbished accommodation, helping to create a community hub in the park. The regeneration of Ashburton Park will also support priorities for health and wellbeing, growth, learning, and social value, which together will help to stimulate the local economy and provide greater opportunities for the wider community.
