The South Croydon Community Association (SCCA) has submitted its response to the Croydon Local Plan Review.
SCCA Response to the Croydon Plan Review
This is the product of a range of activities: participation in Local Plan Review workshops, visits to the drop-in exhibition at the Whitgift Centre, informal meetings and correspondence with individual spatial planners, and an open public meeting organised by the SCCA.
We encourage residents to contribute to the online survey by the deadline of Monday 20th January 2020: https://getinvolved.uk.engagementhq.com/
The annual SCCA festive party will take place on Thursday 16th January from 7.30pm.
As usual, it will take place at an SCCA member’s home and there will be a charge (of around £12) to cover the cost of food. Everyone is encouraged to bring drinks.
If you wish to come, or have any questions, please contact John at email@example.com by Friday 10th January.
SCCA Meeting to discuss Croydon Council’s Local Plan for South Croydon
Date: Monday 6th January 2020
Venue: Croham Road Baptist Church Hall, 52 Croham Road CR2 7BA
Croydon Council is consulting residents on the revisions to its Local Plan to address the climate emergency and housing shortage.
The plan includes details of how many new homes the council aims to provide across the borough, including specific targets for South Croydon.
The SCCA is holding a public meeting on 6th January to discuss the details of the plan, particularly those pertaining to South Croydon. We will then submit a response to the council, on behalf of our community, reflecting the views and questions arising at the meeting, or sent to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
