Does Croydon Council listen to residents? – Have your say by October 6

As part of the Croydon Council’s Governance Review, a panel of cross-party members has been established, led by an independent Chair, Dame Moira Gibb.

The panel is seeking views on whether the council effectively listens to residents and if more should be done to ensure local people can participate in and influence decisions that affect their neighbourhoods, including the provision of local services.

Responses to the survey will be independently analysed by Centre for Public Scrutiny and presented to the Panel to help inform its work on the recommendations and improvements the council can make to enhance local democracy and resident participation in local decision making.

To contribute your views,  complete the short survey, here by October 6, 2019.
