CCC Committee’s Full Statement regarding allegations made


Update: 23 August 2019
Repinned as, within 24 hours of removing this as our pinned post, we have been alerted that the trolling has started up again. 
It is difficult to refute all claims as these continue to be altered or modified and new ones added.

Our position on mediation has not changed over the five years or so that these unsubstantiated claims have been made. We have been willing and remain open to independent mediation if the other parties will agree to it and to look at any evidence for the claims.

If anyone has any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Thank you to everyone who has offered their ongoing support.

Croydon Communities Consortium (CCC) Committee – Full Statement

We, and others associated with us, have been subjected to a malicious and protracted stream of unfounded allegations and agitation over the past five years. The committee discussed the situation at length and made the following brief initial statement.

The committee agreed to pause before publishing the full details, in order to give the other main party a final opportunity to agree to meet to discuss the issues and to retract the allegations.

We are therefore releasing the following full statement to set the record straight.Screen Shot 2018-10-18 at 23.22.59
