Croydon Climate Crisis Commission Draft Recommendations Engagement

Jan 20 2021 to May 28 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.

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 online survey gave 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 included three online workshops in February and March, which gave 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.

Consultation on Review of Cumulative Impact Zones: Statement of Licensing Policy

Consultation on Review of Cumulative Impact Zones within the London Borough of Croydon’s Statement of Licensing Policy – statutory three year review of cumulative impact under Licensing Act 2003

In February 2018, the Council published its revised Statement of Licensing Policy under the Licensing Act 2003 (‘the Act’). A copy of the current document can be found at: Licensing Policy. The Council is not reviewing its Statement of Licensing Policy yet however, part of the Statement of Licensing Policy provides details of four specific areas within the borough which have been identified as Cumulative Impact Zones and we are seeking your views on cumulative impact as detailed below. 

A licensing authority may publish a document (“a cumulative impact assessment”) stating that the licensing authority considers that the number of relevant authorisations (such as premises licenses) in respect of premises (all premises or of a particular type) in one or more parts of its area described in the assessment is such that it is likely that it would be inconsistent with the authority's duty under the Licensing Act 2003 (Section 4(1)) to grant any further relevant authorisations in respect of premises in that part or those parts. A cumulative impact assessment must set out the evidence for the authority's opinion as set out in the cumulative impact assessment.

The four Cumulative Impact Zones (CIZ) in Croydon are areas where evidence has indicated that the number, type and density of licensed premises for off-sale consumption of alcohol (off sales) is having a detrimental impact on the licensing objectives.

The current Cumulative Impact Zones which include off licences, shops and supermarkets selling alcohol for consumption off the premises are as follows:

i.    Along the Brighton Road; South End; High Street, George Street corridor, from the Royal Oak Centre on Brighton Road, Purley to the junction of George Street and Cherry Orchard Road in Central Croydon 
ii    Along the London Road/Streatham High Road corridor, in 3 sections; from the junction of London Road and Tamworth Road in West Croydon to the j/w Canterbury Road; from the j/w Broughton Road to the j/w Melrose Avenue and; from the j/w Northborough Road to the borough boundary with London Borough of Lambeth 

iii    Along the Brigstock Road and High Street, Thornton Heath corridor, from the junction of Brigstock Road and London Road in Thornton Heath to the junction of High Street, Thornton Heath and Whitehorse Lane 

iv    Along the length of Central Parade, New Addington

Have your say on the proposed closure of Virgo Fidelis Convent Senior School

Nov 12 2020 to Dec 10 2020
Education and learning

Virgo Fidelis Convent Senior School is a Roman Catholic voluntary-aided secondary school for girls located in Upper Norwood. The school is part of the Archdiocese of Southwark’s educational provision in Croydon. The closure is being proposed by the school’s Interim Executive Board of Governors (IEB), with the support of the Archdiocese and Croydon Council.

The Virgo Fidelis IEB is proposing the school’s closure because they believe that it is no longer viable – a view which is shared by the Archdiocese and the council. The majority of the buildings are in poor repair and unfit for purpose, with Year 10 pupils having to be taught at an alternative site. In addition, the pupil roll has fallen consistently over the past several years and the school budget is in significant deficit. Consequently the school is increasingly unable to deliver the broad and balanced curriculum that would be expected of a modern secondary school.

A pre-publication consultation took place from 1 October to 23 October in which stakeholders commented on the proposed closure. Sixty responses were received during this period which formed the basis of a consultation outcomes report presented to the interim executive director of children, families and education and the cabinet member for children, young people and learning to consider and decide whether to proceed to the next step and start the formal representation period. A copy of the consultation outcomes report can be found below.

Following approval, a formal consultation will now begin, allowing people to comment on or object to the council about the proposal to close the school.

The consultation will run until from 12 November - 10 December 2020.

All responses received will be analysed and used to create a formal consultation outcomes report which will be submitted to Croydon Council’s cabinet in January 2021 for a final decision on the proposal to close the school from August 2021.

Public Space Protection Order

Oct 12 2020 to Nov 8 2020
Crime and Policing

A Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) prohibits specific behaviours and activities within a defined area so that people can enjoy public spaces without experiencing particular nuisance or annoyance. PSPOs help the council to work in partnership with the police to tackle specific issues in designated areas.

Breaching a PSPO can result in a fine and could also lead to legal prosecution.

The council's existing PSPOs are about to expire and there are three that we are proposing to keep. They are:

  • Croydon town centre
  • Thornton Heath
  • Boroughwide dog control

Each PSPO has specific behaviour prohibitions and restrictions that we propose to include in this PSPO. We have included these within our survey and would like to hear if you think we have selected the right conditions and if there are any other issues that should be considered.

The current PSPOs in New Addington and South Norwood are due to expire, and we have made a decision, based on the data we have available, not to renew them. We will continue to work with our partners such as the police and VCS organisations to tackle issues impacting those communities.

Consultation on the proposed closure of Virgo Fidelis Convent High School

Oct 1 2020 to Oct 23 2020
Education and learning

Virgo Fidelis is a Roman Catholic voluntary-aided secondary school for girls, located in Upper Norwood. It is part of the Archdiocese of Southwark’s education provision in the London Borough of Croydon. The closure is being proposed by the school’s Interim Executive Governing Board (IEGB), with the support of the Archdiocese and Croydon Council.

Consultation responses will be presented to the cabinet member for children, young people and learning and the council’s executive director for children, families and education. Subject to their approval, this consultation will be followed by the publication of the statutory notice, which will start a four-week representation period when any person can send objections or comments to Croydon Council.

The Virgo Fidelis IEGB is proposing the school’s closure because they believe that it is no longer viable – a view which is shared by the Archdiocese and the council. The majority of the buildings are in poor repair and unfit for purpose, with Year 10 pupils having to be taught at an alternative site. In addition, the pupil roll has fallen consistently over the past several years and the school budget has been in deficit. Consequently the school is increasingly unable to deliver the broad and balanced curriculum that would be expected of a modern secondary school.

Earlier this year Virgo Fidelis took the decision, with the support of the Office of the Schools Adjudicator, to suspend admissions for September 2020. Incoming year 7 pupils were offered alternative places at Notre Dame High School, another all-girls Roman Catholic School within the Archdiocese of Southwark.

Should the proposed closure be approved, pupils who are currently in Years 8 and 9 at Virgo Fidelis will be offered alternative places at other schools from September 2021.  Year 10 Virgo Fidelis students are currently being taught on the site of St Mary’s Catholic Secondary School in Croydon, due to the condition of the buildings on the Virgo Fidelis site. Should the closure of Virgo Fidelis be approved, these pupils will be enrolled as St Mary’s pupils for Year 11, remaining in a single-sex location away from the rest of the school. 

Current Year 11 pupils will have completed their GCSE examinations in July 2021, before the proposed closure of the school is August 2021.

Croydon Council and the Archdiocese of Southwark will work together to seek to redeploy all Virgo Fidelis staff, or as many as possible, into alternative positions in other schools locally.

South London waste plan

Sep 4 2020 to Oct 22 2020
Environment, Planning and regeneration

 

The South London Waste Plan (adopted 30 January 2012) sets out the spatial issues and objectives to be met in waste management for the next ten years up to 2022. It is a joint development plan document (DPD) and covers the geographical area comprising the London Borough of Croydon, the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames, the London Borough of Merton and the London Borough of Sutton. It contains policies to guide the determination of planning applications for waste facilities and identifies existing waste sites to be safeguarded and areas where waste facility development may be suitable.

The South London waste plan is part of the development plan for Croydon's local plan programme. It is in conformity and should be read alongside with the policies of the Croydon Local Plan 2018.

The South London Waste Plan is currently being updated.  A draft South London Waste Plan has been published for comments to be made. It sets out the proposed strategy of Croydon, Kingston, Merton and Sutton councils for the location of waste facilities and how planning applications will be decided. The new South London Waste Plan when adopted will cover a 15 year planning period from 2021-2036.

Publishing the draft South London Waste Plan is a formal stage in the statutory process of preparing a new Waste Plan. All comments made will be sent to a Planning Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State who will consider whether changes need to be made to the draft South London Waste Plan to make it ‘sound’.

Proposed introduction of emission-based parking charges

Oct 1 2020 to Oct 22 2020
Parking, streets and transport

We are proposing to introduce emission-based charges to all on-street and car park pay and display bays within the borough.

Revising parking charges according to vehicle emissions became council policy in 2019 with an aim of reducing the damaging impact air pollution has on public health and encouraging residents’ to help reduce harmful emissions in the borough.

The proposal also includes changing the 30min and one-hour free pay and display parking bays in our district centres to two-hour maximum charged parking, to bring them in line with the emission-based charges and encourage more residents to walk and cycle to their local high streets.

If introduced, parking charges for zero emission vehicles would be reduced by about 90%, while charges for the highest emission vehicles would be increased by 30%. The charges would come into effect in January 2021. The proposed emission band charges are detailed in the public notices below.

This proposal is the last phase of Croydon’s emission-based parking charges following the introduction of emission-based charging for resident, business and parking permits in the last year.

The proposal supports feedback we've had from our communities who have told us that they are concerned about air quality, and that traffic levels should be reduced*. We are also working to a number of national, regional and local aims of reducing emissions. The full list of these initiatives can be found in the report paper below.

*A survey on the future of transport for the draft third Local Implementation Plan (LIP3) in September 2018 found that 74% of respondents are concerned about air quality in Croydon and 72% agreed that traffic levels should be lowered.

The Fair Field public space

The Fair Field is an ambitious multi-million pound scheme to build a world-class public space in the heart of Croydon’s emerging cultural quarter. It will provide a stunning setting for the newly-refurbished Fairfield Halls, improve links with the rest of the town centre and create a destination space for communities and visitors alike.

Also known as College Green or Fairfield Gardens, the public space is only moments away from East Croydon station and the civic heart of Croydon around the Town Hall and Queens Gardens. It is part of an important network of existing and future public spaces in the town centre being delivered through private and council-led projects.

The project, scheduled for completion in 2022, sits alongside plans to transform the wider area into a cultural quarter with a new residential community. The council’s private development company, Brick by Brick, is leading on some of the area’s residential components.

The proposal for the Fair Field public space builds on the heritage of the area. It responds to the council’s brief which called for an innovative design that integrates water, public art, and lighting.

Proposals have now been submitted for planning and a decision is expected in the Autumn.

Drug and alcohol misuse (substance misuse) in Croydon survey August 2020

Jul 10 2020 to Sep 18 2020
Not applicable

Survey on drug and alcohol misuse (substance misuse) in Croydon August 2020

Croydon Council has commissioned research into drug and alcohol misuse (substance misuse) in the borough.  Like every London borough, Croydon has problems related to substance misuse (data sourced from the National Drug Treatment Monitoring System that provides borough by borough data on substance misuse:   https://www.ndtms.net/ )

This survey is part of a process that is aimed at improving both local substance misuse treatment services and the wider response to substance misuse, for example, education, prevention and crime reduction.

This survey is asking for your thoughts and opinions.   It is completely anonymous and does not ask you anything about yourself.  This information will be put together with statistical data on what is happening in Croydon, the views of those who work with substance misusers and with the thoughts of substance misusers and their families.  The data and feedback will be used to draw up plans for a new local contract for substance misuse services and other changes that will help to reduce the impact that drugs and alcohol have on Croydon.

These changes will be aimed at improving the help available to people who have alcohol or drug problems, but also reducing the impact on families and the whole community of Croydon.

Results and findings of the survey will be shared with our stakeholders such as cabinet members, senior management and those involved in planning and commissioning substance misuse services.   They will also be shared with our partners in, for example, the health service.  The report from this research will be made available to the public via the Get involved engagement platform.

We look forward to hearing your thoughts and opinions.

Parks and Greenspaces in a COVID-19 Landscape

Aug 5 2020 to Sep 13 2020
Leisure and culture

One consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic is the spotlight highlighting the importance of access to and use of local parks and greenspaces. When considered in conjunction with the pre-COVID-19 growing interest in the role these greenspaces can play in Climate Crisis mitigation, there is now far greater and wider awareness of the value they provide to society as a whole. A number of broad scale surveys are being conducted to understand how the pandemic is changing use and perception of these greenspaces, however a short Croydon-specific data gathering exercise will provide verifiable insight which will be of use to Council officers who are planning for a future for these greenspaces post-COVID-19.

The survey outcomes identified below will provide baseline data on use of these greenspaces as well as some light-touch resident perceptions on how these greenspaces are being managed now and what they could look like in the future. Given the financially restrictive position the Council is in, it will be important to prioritise what investment is possible whilst also maintaining realistic expectations across the political and public spheres.

Have your say on Croydon's landlord licensing scheme

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.
