Three years on from our first meeting on the subject and due to continued borough-wide interest, the committee is pleased to announce a public meeting to follow up on the subject.
Everyone’s talking about refuse, recycling and flytipping; a borough-wide issue.
Please join us for our public meeting in the hall to the rear of:
St. Michael and All Angels with St. James
Enter via the gate to the left of the Church.
Please book a free place to attend.
Questions & comments:
Please provide these as soon as possible and at least a fortnight prior to the meeting. You can do as a comment of this post. Alternatively, you can email us and we will post for you.
Please keep questions and comments short and to the point.
A council officer has agreed to provide a response. All councillors are also invited to attend.

On the night:
Doors open at 7pm. After registration, tea and coffee will be available, and an opportunity for informal networking. There will be community information on display.
The meeting will start at 7.30pm with brief introductions and notices.
This is your chance to express your views and get questions on the subject answered.
Please book a place
If you have difficulty booking or have any other queries please email us at CroydonNeighbourhoods@gmail.com.
Who can attend?
Anyone with an interest in Croydon.
Is there a cost?
No. Places are free.
Do I need to book a place?
Yes, please. This will speed up registration and means you won’t need to provide details on the night.
We can register you manually on the night if you haven’t booked and if places are still available but this may mean queuing, delayed entry and potentially delaying the start of the meeting which we’d prefer to avoid.
Booking via Eventbrite, whether or not you bring your ticket with you, will speed up your entry, so please do book or email us so we can sort out registration ahead of the event.
PLEASE NOTE: Those who pre-book will be given preference if numbers exceed capacity at any meeting.
Is this council led or run?
No. CCC is an independent group run by Croydon residents. CCC is partly funded by a small grant from Croydon Council but is independent of the council.
Are meetings and activities aligned to any political party?
CCC is strictly apolitical. Everyone attending is asked to respect this in the comments made during meetings and in any literature brought to the meeting.
Is the venue accessible?
Yes. The venue is wheelchair accessible.
Parking can be provided for blue badge holders with prior notice so please get in touch well before the meeting so arrangements can be made.
There is no hearing loop.
There will also be local information on display and copies to take away.
Our meetings are open to all and are strictly apolitical.
Donations to Purley Food Hub
We will be collecting donations for Purley Food Hub again at this meeting. The list for May 2017 is here. Canned fruit, canned vegetables, tinned meat, can openers and basic toiletries are always welcome.
There is no general parking available at this venue, but its central location with good transport links. We may be able to cater for blue badge holders, so please get in touch well ahead of the event if this applies to you.
The hall is to the rear of the Church, accessed through the gate in the fencing to the left of the main Church entrance.
