Croydon Climate Crisis Commission Draft Recommendations Engagement

Jan 20 2021 to Dec 31 2021
Environment

The Croydon Climate Crisis Commission was launched in early 2020. The Commission’s primary purpose is to identify actions to drive rapid reductions in the carbon emissions from activities in the borough of Croydon. Critically, the Commission aims to ensure the transition to zero carbon happens in a fair way, providing good quality jobs, improving wellbeing, and reducing inequality.

The Commission is independent, and its membership brings together representatives from across the Croydon community.

Building on the work of the Citizen’s Assembly on Climate Change which reported in early 2020, the Commission has been working with a wide range of people who have come together to develop ideas to tackle climate change in Croydon. 

The Commission will be presenting their report to the Council in March 2020.

Following their declaration of a climate and ecological emergency in 2019 Croydon Council partnered with the New Economics Foundation to set up and support the Commission.  Please contact us if you would like to hear more about the work of the Commission.

Children and Young People with SEND survey - coping during COVID-19 lockdown

The voice of our children and young people matters. 

We want to hear from you!

2020 was a difficult and worrying year for us all because of COVID-19 lockdown restrictions aimed at keeping us protected from the virus.  We are still facing challenges into the start of 2021 during another lockdown with school and leisure activities being limited. Croydon Council’s children, families and education team wants to make sure that we are doing as much as we can to support children and young people during this time so that everyone feels safe, calm and happy. To help us with this we are asking everyone some questions about how they are feeling and what you think your community can do to help.

This is a chance for you to talk about how you are feeling, share some ideas of what has helped you and to give your ideas for how our community can help you further. 

The survey is going to help us and our local partners work together to ensure everything goes well for your return to school and to enjoy the things you like doing within your community, so please be honest and say what you really think.

Have your say in redesigning Croydon Council’s website

Our website is changing. Help us make sure it works for you!

We are part of Croydon Digital Service (CDS). We want our services to work for the people who use them — you, Croydon residents, council staff, Croydon businesses and potential visitors.

This means we need to know what you need, so that we can build services that meet those needs and make interacting with council services easier and faster.

One of our main projects is redesigning the council website.

Consultation on the Purley Way Masterplan

Feb 9 2021 to Mar 16 2021
Planning and regeneration

Croydon residents can help shape a 20-year development vision for future homes, businesses and public spaces along Purley Way by answering a new online survey.

The Purley Way is one of the areas earmarked in the council’s Local Plan Review for future transformation and growth, including housing, jobs, improved transport access and more public open spaces and facilities.

The new online survey is an opportunity for residents, businesses and visitors to feedback on the proposals, and outline their priorities around sustainable growth for the Purley Way area, which stretches from the boundary with Purley up to Valley Park.

The council consultation will also include three online workshops in February, which will give the public a chance to participate in a presentation and Q&A workshop to discuss the proposals.

The feedback received from this five-week consultation, as well as early feedback last summer, will help to shape the final masterplan. This is an important step in the process to adopting the masterplan as a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) that will provide assurance and guidance for good growth to happen in the Purley Way area – growth that is sustainable and high quality, creating a resilient and vibrant place that enhances the area’s unique heritage.

Libraries consultation

Jan 14 2021 to Mar 14 2021
Community and life events, Leisure and culture

*Update* The consultation has been extended to 14 March to provide more time to have your say on our proposals. We have also launched a series of informative webinars that can answer frequently asked questions. More information on these webinars is available below.

If you have already submitted a survey response but have more comments to add, we are allowing multiple submissions.

Our library service is so much more than buildings and books. Since bringing our libraries in-house we have invested significantly in the service, upgrading the IT equipment and broadband making them more modern and inclusive community spaces. Members can now also access six million books through our membership of The Libraries Consortium, including 41,000 e-books, newspapers, magazines and training materials. Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic we’ve seen a major shift in the way people access our service and use digital collections, with 1,800 new online members.

The council is currently facing severe financial challenges, which means we will need to be clear about our priorities and make some tough decisions about what we will and won’t do over the next few years. Some services will stop and others, such as our library service, will have to change. But, by focussing on a smaller number of priorities for our residents, we will make sure that we are delivering good quality services, where they will have the biggest impact.

We are committed to delivering a comprehensive and efficient library service, which operates within the reduced resources available. This means that we are having to look at either closing some of our library buildings, or find an alternative that would not require any council funding.

The council currently runs 13 libraries in the borough, and we are proposing reducing this to eight. By doing this it will allow us to continue providing a comprehensive library service that meets the needs of our community.

When considering library buildings to include in our proposals we have looked at building operating and maintenance costs, how visitors use the service, and how close they are to other libraries - more details on this is provided in the fact sheets below.

At this stage of our consultation we want to hear your views on the proposals, ideas for our library service and suggestions for alternative ways we could use library buildings. We will use this information to help us further develop our options and consult you again on these, before taking a proposal to cabinet for a decision in summer 2021.

 

To request this information and questionnaire in a different format, email: librariesconsultation@croydon.gov.uk or call 020 7884 5159.

 

Please complete the survey below by 14 March.

 

You can complete the survey as many times as you like.
