There are several surveys out there at the moment, don’t miss the chance to have your say about our local libraries, parks and Croydon’s renewal plan.
Libraries: consultation ends March 7th
In response to the borough’s unprecedented financial deficit, the council has launched an online survey asking residents how they use the libraries service and what their views are on proposals to close five of its 13 library buildings. The buildings at Bradmore Green, Shirley, Sanderstead, South Norwood and Broad Green will close unless viable alternative plans are found that require no public money.
At this stage the council want to hear your views on the proposals, ideas for the library service and suggestions for alternative ways we could use library buildings.
