Selsdon Community Plan

We want your views on the future of Selsdon to help us produce a community plan that will set out priorities for how the area can improve.  This five-year plan, which will cover the areas of Selsdon, Forestdale and Addington Village, is being led by a team made up local groups, churches, ward councillors, Croydon Council, local businesses and schools who are working together to help change Selsdon for the better by:-

  • Building a pleasant, modern, healthy environment respectful of its heritage, fit for the future
  • Nurturing sustainable local businesses to secure high quality jobs for local people
  • Creating a connected, collaborative, welcoming community of which residents  are proud

This survey uses ideas and suggestions made by the community in November and you can view a short report summarising feedback on the following link Selsdon Community Day Responses

Please complete this short survey by Thursday 12 March 2020.


Data protection statement

We have asked for your information on this survey because it tells us more about the people (like you) who are responding. If we know more about you, we know more about the Selsdon Community Plan can be developed to make improved decisions about priorities for investing in the area. It also helps us to make sure we’re hearing from all our diverse communities.

This privacy notice explains how the Council's Regeneration Team will use your personal information, and how we protect your privacy in compliance with our requirement under the Data Protection Act 2018 and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). By personal information, we mean information which, by itself or with other data is available to Croydon Council, can be used to identify you. This notice applies to any activity involving our use of your personal data, for example, collecting, storing, sharing and destroying it.

What information we will collect

If you submit a survey response, we will collect your name, contact details and any other relevant details.

Why we are collecting this information

There are times when we need to collect your contact information (so we can keep in touch). When we ask for this, we will be clear about why we’re collecting this information and how it will be used. When we analyse responses and report findings from our surveys, your personal details will not be identifiable.  We will use responses to report findings of the survey in the plan and any quotes we use will be anonymous/non-attributable. That’s the same for when we ask for demographic information (like your age, gender identity, ethnicity or disabilities). We’ll also make sure that you don’t have to answer any questions about you, if you don’t want to.  

Who we share the information with

The survey information you provide will be accessible to other council departments who may use it to help the council improve the services that we provide in Croydon.

If you complete this survey and have changed your mind about giving us this data, we'll remove it. You can do this by emailing the words 'OPT OUT' to SelsdonCommunityPlan@croydon.gov.uk   We'll extend this for 30 days after a survey has closed.
