Focus of CCC meetings for the year ahead
The committee is particularly interested in hearing what you feel the focus of meetings in the year ahead should be.

Queens Gardens and Taberner House redevelopment
Anita Troffa, a member of the consultation team will be attending, along with Steve Sanham who is the Managing Director of HUB residential, the developers behind the Taberner House / Queens Gardens redesign, to discuss plans, take questions and hear people’s views.

Policing in Croydon
The police can not attend due to an ongoing operation but hope to provide an update for the meeting.

Street lighting
Skanska has been approached for an update and the firm has asked that a council officer attend to provide an update to residents. This is yet to be confirmed.

Please book a free place to help us cater for numbers. We do not have full use of the hall on this occasions as Charity Christmas cards are on sale during the day, so places are limited and preference will be given to members and to those booking a place.


Donations to Croydon Refugee Centre
We will  be accepting donations of food for the Croydon Refugee Centre on the night for them to prepare food parcels.

Tinned tomatoes, pasta, tinned meat, tinned fish and tinned fruit are the most popular items. Tinned beans, tinned vegetables, rice, pot noodles and cup a soup are also welcomed.

  1. It is important to tell the developers of Taberner House and the Queen’s Gardens that the two are separate properties, one private one public. Whatever is required for play space and amenity space for Taberner House should not be muddled up with the Queen’s Gardens. The Queen’s Gardens are our premier formal green space in Croydon, a haven of peace and beauty. A place people use for their wedding photographs where there should be beautiful gardens, a statue perhaps a bandstand but not the back garden of a block of flats. Save our Queen’s gardens, improve them but keep them safe. They are part of Croydon’s heritage not part of Taberner House.

  2. Comment and question received via email:

    Skanska – while I have been extremely worried about cut-off lamp posts with notices of live wires attached to them being in evidence for months at a time following the installation of new lights, I would like to add that it is absolutely wonderful to see that the lights around the Croydon Minster have remained in fitting with the building in design – thanks to whoever organised this.

    I would also like to ask why the new lights along Roman Way are still orange? Are all new lights not meant to be white light now?

    And when will the energy saving aspect and dimming of the lights in the early hours of the morning commence?
