Sth Norwood Baptist ChurchAnyone with an interest in Croydon is welcome to attend any of our public meetings and meetings are apolitical.

As is the case with all our general public meetings, the body of this meeting will be open, with no set agenda. The topics discussed will be led by those attending.

Come along with information, notices or updates you’d like to share, topics you’d like discussed, or just come along to listen and have the opportunity to contribute to the discussion.

Topics for discussion
In response to demand, we are inviting people to suggest topics for discussion to kick off the meeting. Please add a comment on this post to indicate a topic of interest. There will still be plenty of opportunity to raise a topic for discussion or highlight a notice on the night.

Councillors, council officers and the Croydon Met Police are invited to our meetings.

Key updates:

  • Policing matters – A senior officer from the local policing team will be joining us to provide a brief update and take questions from the floor.
  • Regeneration & plans to consult on 20 mph zones – We’ve invited council officers involved in regeneration plans for South Norwood and the 20 mph proposal.
  • Croydon Council’s Equalities and Inclusion policy – Sean Creighton has proposed an item for discussion on the night, relating to the Council’s interim Equalities and Inclusion policy, recently agreed.  We’ve been chasing a copy of the approved policy as only the papers that went to Cabinet are available at this point.

The papers and Sean’s discussion document are available here:

Sean’s discussion document, tabled for discussion:

Draft Equalities Policy 4 Mar 2015 Cllr. Mark Watson has advised that this was approved, in full, without amendment.

  1. Apart from the usual concerns — rubbish, untidy properties owned by absent landlords, Croydon’s very poor provision of useable public conveniences for a large town aspiring to be London’s third city, to attract residents and visitors and to be “loved” (a point mentioned to me, yet again, by some visitors), and so on — there is nothing I would want to be tabled.
