Community Toilet Scheme
London Borough of Croydon From 18 Jan 2019  to 15 Mar 2019
Why are we doing this?

Under the current provision of toilets in the borough, there are two disability compliant toilets which also have baby changing facilities. We are proposing a community toilet scheme (CTS) that not only makes wider provision under the Equality Act 2010 but also provides more baby changing facilities. 

As part of a wider cost saving initiative the introduction of a community toilet scheme (CTS) would save the council around £75,000 per year.

TfL consultation: Proposed changes to bus routes 404 and 434
Transport for London From 08 Jan 2019  to 11 Feb 2019
Why are we doing this?

Please note this is a Transport for London (TfL) consultation.

Tfl is proposing changes to bus routes 404 and 434 to improve the areas served and the frequency of the services on the routes.

Proposals for route 404 include:

  • A new service to Rickman Hill, as well as the Tollers Lane estate and Shirley Avenue in Old Coulsdon
  • A Sunday service for the first time
  • An improved service frequency on all days with buses running every 30 minutes.

Proposals for route 434 include:

  • A new service to the Cane Hill estate
  • An improved 20 minute frequency on Monday to Saturday
  • The route would no longer serve Rickman Hill
  • Some existing 434 users in the Rickman Hill area would have to change buses at Coulsdon to make current trips towards Purley.

Changes to some road layouts would need to be undertaken by Croydon Council within the Tollers Lane Estate so buses can run safely and efficiently through the area. The Council has written to affected residents separately on this matter. A copy of of the letter and plan can be obtained by writing to: strategictransport@croydon.gov.uk

Client Contributions / Charging Policy Questionnaire
London Borough of Croydon From 17 Dec 2018  to 25 Jan 2019
Why are we doing this?

We want Croydon to be a healthy, safe and great place to live and we have duties as laid out in the legislation including the Care Act, 2014 to provide support to those who may need it and / or are eligible.

We want to ensure equity and fairness in the distribution of our resources and like all councils, we are finding it hard to balance the budget as national funding for council services reduces further and more people need care and support across the adult population.

In order to ensure we are supporting and protecting our most vulnerable residents we are exploring new ways to deliver services and address our financial challenges.

The purpose of the consultation is to hear your views on a number of changes we are proposing to make to our adult social care charging policy.  It is also important for us to understand how these proposed changes could impact you before making any decisions.

This consultation will help us to explore the impact of proposals to change the charging policy for adult social care. The consultation process helps the council understand the impact before making decisions and welcome your views.

Fear of Crime
London Borough of Croydon From 05 Dec 2018  to 22 Feb 2019
Why are we doing this?

The Safer Croydon Partnership brings together the Police, Council, Fire, Health, Probation, voluntary, community groups and businesses. Its aim is to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour. 

We are conducting this survey to find out how you feel about crime and anti-social behaviour. This helps us to see which locations and issues most concern you, and in turn this helps us direct resources more effectively and efficiently so that all those living, working or visiting Croydon feel safer.

Here's what's happened since the last survey in 2015:

•    You told us that the locations in Croydon where you don’t feel safe were West Croydon bus station, Thornton Heath and South Norwood During the past two years all of these areas have benefited from physical improvements such as new paving and improved lighting.

•    We have seen a reduction in the number of victims of serious youth violence in the borough from 439 (Sept 2016-2017) to 395 (Sept 2017-2018);

•    Finally, we are pleased that the Safer Croydon Partnership were finalists in the Metropolitan Police Problem Solving Awards for the past two years and the Joint Agency Group, which tackles anti-social behaviour.

As a result, we have secured additional funding to purchase 10 temporary CCTV cameras for deployment borough wide.

SEND Strategy & Post 16 SEND Travel Policy consultation
London Borough of Croydon From 03 Dec 2018  to 31 Jan 2019
Why are we doing this?

Croydon council is consulting on a draft strategy for improving outcomes and life chances for children and young people (0-25) with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) in Croydon.

At the same time, the council is also consulting on changes to its transport policy for young people aged 16-18 with special educational needs.  The council arranges travel support for some children and young people with special needs and/or disabilities to attend school or college. 

About the proposed Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND) Strategy 2019-2022 for Children & Young People in Croydon

The proposed strategy is a response to the extensive changes to the statutory assessment & planning arrangements for children and young people with SEND contained within the Children and Families Act 2014. We recognise the need to develop a SEND Strategy that sets out the ambitions that Croydon has for children and young people with SEND. The strategy lays out the strategic plan for achieving these goals, jointly with parents, students and other agencies.

About proposed changes to the post 16 travel assistance policy for young people with SEND in education or training

Travel assistance is arranged when students meet the eligibility criteria set out in the Home to School and Post 16 Travel Assistance policies.  Whilst part of this service is statutory (aged 5 to 16) some of the eligibility criteria employed in Croydon is discretionary.  There is no automatic entitlement to free home to school/college transport for students aged 16 to 18. However, the council is required to provide the support that it deems necessary to facilitate the attendance of young people of sixth form age who are in education or training.  

The proposals in this consultation apply to the discretionary criteria and the post 16 policy for those students aged 16 to 18 with SEND in education or training. The preferred option for the council is the proposed introduction of personal budgets to the majority of those students.
