There are still three events remaining, all on Wednesday evenings at the David Lean Cinema.  They are free and offer the ideal way for the general public to engage and provide feedback to the Croydon Metropolitan Police.

Grass cutting – no feedback as yet

Update from Cllr Kyeremeh – Time will be made available for Cllr Kyeremeh to speak at the AGM and at future meetings to provide the updates promised at this meeting.

Skanska – A meeting will be set up to pursue this issue in the future, although, due to time constraints, this issue will not be an agenda item for scrutiny committee until 2016.

Cllr Fitzsimons offered the following update on the matter:

“Sean Creighton wrote a write up on the last meeting on this subject.

Due to time constraints, we will look at the issue again next year.

As with all our meetings, if you have any feedback on this meeting or our activities we’d welcome hearing from you.
