Croydon Healthy Neighbourhoods (CHN)

Jun 1 2021 to Jun 30 2022
Environment, Health and social care, Planning and regeneration, Parking, streets and transport

The council is asking for views on plans to improve five Croydon Healthy Neighbourhoods set up to make local streets quieter, safer and healthier.

Croydon introduced these temporary schemes last year in response to government calls for councils to encourage walking and cycling using road closures, and as part of the long-term response to the borough’s climate emergency declaration.

Having listened to residents’ feedback, the council is launching five surveys 16 June until 14 July on proposed changes to five Healthy Neighbourhood schemes in Broad Green and Addiscombe.

The changes aim to keep these schemes’ benefits while improving access for local people. The proposals are to extend four of the five schemes for up to 18 months on an experimental basis with some changes following resident feedback. The council is consulting on making a fifth scheme permanent.

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.

Shaping Purley

Oct 20 2020 to Oct 29 2021
Planning and regeneration

During summer and autumn 2020, the council engaged residents, businesses and other stakeholders in Purley to inform the development of the Purley Strategic Framework. Croydon Council invited the Purley community to help create a plan that can be used to shape the future of Purley town centre and its immediate surroundings. The plan known as the Purley Strategic Framework is based on community engagement and urban design analysis. The projects are not funded by the council; instead the framework will be used to help influence developers working in the area. It will also be used to support the local community to seek funding opportunities for local projects.

We would like to thank everyone who has engaged in the process so far.

We are now publishing two draft reports based on your feedback and would love to hear any final comments you may have on the documents. The two documents are:

You can read a summary of the feedback received so far from the community in the appendices of the Plan.

These documents will continue to be used across different stakeholder groups and we will focus on:

  • Incorporating some of the key ideas within the framework into the Croydon Local Plan to ensure that future development in Purley is coherent and informed by community ideas. The framework will also be available for residents, business owners, developers and planners to help capture the opportunities from the development of future sites in the area.
  • Additionally there will be a focus on working with the Purley Panel and other interested key community groups to get them involved in identifying funding and taking forward the ideas.

Croydon Race Matters Pledge and Croydon Equalities Pledge

Jun 23 2021 to Aug 15 2021
Community and life events

Croydon Council is working with some of its key partners: Croydon BME Forum, Legacy Youth Zone, Whitgift School, PJs group and the police to develop a Croydon Race Matters Pledge and Croydon Equalities Pledge for the borough.

Our survey asks for residents’ opinions on the proposed Croydon Race Matters Pledge and Croydon Equalities Pledge. The pledges are a pioneering series of commitments which aim to make Croydon free from racism as well as a safer, fairer and more inclusive borough for all. 

Once finalised the pledges will be open for all residents, businesses, organisations and groups to sign and could include committing to a number of principles such as: implementing fair and impartial recruitment processes, delivering and monitoring equality and diversity training for all staff on topics such as unconscious bias, anti-racism and cultural awareness, reviewing the diversity of your organisation’s workforce, and sharing good equality practice.
