Don’t miss the next two events.
January’s meeting focusses on effective engagement with the Council.
The February meeting offers your opportunity to meet with the new borough commander, Chief Inspector Jeff Boothe, to discuss policing matters.
We are currently planning for future meetings, with the next provisionally booked for 6 February 2017. This is likely to focus on the consultation on 20 mph being introduced on the majority of roads in Croydon.
At our general meetings, anyone can raise a topic for discussion, promote a local event or group, give a notice, discuss an issue or ask a question of others. All we ask is that people respect that CCC and our meetings are apolitical.
We’ll advertise details of future meetings when they are confirmed and hope you will be able to attend.
