Please join us for our public meeting at

St George’s Church Hall 
Barrow Road

7pm – 9pm


Anyone 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
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 opportunities 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.


Please book a free place on Eventbrite here:
This helps us to cater for numbers and ensures that we can start the meeting promptly.

Getting there, travel and access:
The Church can be reached by bus. From Purley, the 289 stops at Imperial Way. From East Croydon, the 198 stops at Crowley Crescent.

If driving, the best roads to use to get to St George’s is Foss Avenue, or Crowley Crescent 2nd right from Purley Way, or 3nd left turning from Papisford Road into Warham Road/Denning Avenue. Barrow Road is one way only.

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 aim to finish early 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.

  1. A topic for discussion, received via email, as follows:

    Question to be raised at the St. George’s Church CCC Meeting. 19.10.2015

    How do you get local residents be proud of where they live, by tidying up their gardens, not dropping cans, bottles etc., and also not fly tipping?


  2. Hello there, I cycle along Waddon Way regularly and the west bound cycle lane leaves you very close to the parked cars, a car door could take out a cyclists here. The moving traffic comes very close so leaves you very little space to avoid opening car doors.
    The restriction by the garden centre is also a poor facility for cycling, the cycle lanes providing a by pass for bikes are far too narrow and the east bound one has cars parked very close meaning a cyclist has to veer out into moving and oncoming traffic from behind parked cars. This is quite dangerous.
    Can something be done about ths please?

  3. How can we encourage park users to use the litter bins or take their litter home? The Council seem to be struggling with keeping the parks clean – I have personal experience of seeing considerable amounts of litter in Duppas Hill Park in particular after the weekends, though other parks are similarly affected. And this is after the recent installation of new and bigger litter bins (thank you Croydon Council). More bins perhaps? Emptied more often? Signage? Occasional visits by wardens – especially when sport is being played on Sundays?


  4. A question for discussion, submitted via email:

    The December 2014 report of the House of Commons Environmental Audit Committee recommended that legislation be introduced to change the planning laws and ban the building of schools near to a source of pollution. Furthermore, the report maintains that approx 60,000 deaths a year are caused by air (primarily traffic) pollution.

    In the interests of the health and welfare of children should Croydon Council now abandon plans to build a primary school near to the Purley Way Five Ways Intersection?

  5. There has been a chronic failure by the Council to ensure that the public toilet block in Coulsdon town centre (by Aldi) is in working order. I raised the issue more than 12 weeks ago with local councillors and have recently sought assistance from Chris Philp MP. It is taking an inordinate amount of time to sort out and causes embarrassment for many people who have to use toilet facilities at either the Pembroke public house or Cafe Nero, although not purchasing from those businesses. Can more pressure be put on the Council to fix the problem?
