Helping our local communities give us feedback

Helping our local communities give us feedback

We are currently in consultation on the proposed development at College Green in Upper Norwood.  We have invited all residents to submit their comments on our online engagement platform to ensure they are considered.  Now that we are unable to hold a public event, we are also suggesting that any resident who is uncomfortable using the internet, contacts us by calling 020 3034 2566 so we can send them hard copies of the proposals.  We are reaching out to local residents via a leaflet with information about this, but if you know of a neighbour that would like to give direct feedback, please pass this message on.

For the last few months, we have been using the Commonplace engagement platform to collect feedback from local residents about our proposals for new homes at potential sites across the borough.  With social contact now restricted as advised by the Government, this online tool will become even more important for us to engage with local people as we enter the next phase in the development process. Over the coming weeks, we are unlikely to be able to run public events to gain feedback from the community in person.  Therefore, we would like to remind all residents that providing feedback through the relevant pages on Commonplace is the best way to share your views on proposed schemes.  We want to incorporate constructive local feedback into our plans so we’re able to provide homes and buildings that suit the local community. We would also recommend that residents subscribe to Commonplace in order to receive regular news updates – you can subscribe/unsubscribe at any time, even if the consultation period has closed for a specific site.

As a local company, owned by Croydon Council, we are genuinely keen to get feedback from residents.  Development is not always popular with local people,  however, with an ongoing housing crisis and the need for more homes of all tenures across the borough, it is essential.

Thanks for your understanding, and stay safe.
