Croydon Climate Crisis Commission Draft Recommendations Engagement
London Borough of Croydon From 20 Jan 2021  to 03 Feb 2021
Why are we doing this?

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.

Libraries consultation
London Borough of Croydon From 14 Jan 2021  to 07 Mar 2021
Why are we doing this?

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.

Consultation on Review of Cumulative Impact Zones: Statement of Licensing Policy
London Borough of Croydon From 30 Dec 2020  to 17 Feb 2021
Why are we doing this?

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
