Please join us for our public meeting at
South Norwood Baptist Church
Oliver Avenue, off Holmesdale Road
7pm – 9pm
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.
- 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:
And the supporting papers:
Draft Equalities Policy 4 Mar 2015 Cllr. Mark Watson has advised that this was approved, in full, without amendment.
Equalities Main_report 16 March which went to Cabinet on 16 March 2015.

This helps us to cater for numbers and ensures that we can start the meeting promptly.
Doors open at 7pm, when tea and coffee will be available and you’ll have the chance to meet others attending.
We will aim to start the meeting at 7.20pm and to finish around 8.30pm to allow those attending to network and for us to vacate the venue by 9pm.
Those who have not pre-booked will be asked to register on the door and those who have pre-booking will be given preference if numbers exceed capacity.
