Last Minute Protest Against Buying SEGAS House for Academy School

I have posted a petition on the Croydon Council website calling for it not to go ahead with buying SEGAS House for an Academy School because of its inappropriateness as a location for school. It has taken a few days to go live because of the Council’s approval system. The epetition can be seen and signed at Although the Cabinet approved the principle on Monday 14 July and the Council the following day, the Young People and Children’s Scrutiny Sub-committee is reviewing tomorrow (Tuesday 22 July). I have asked its members to consider advising that the decision not be acted upon and a set of criteria for Council approval of Academy and Free school sites.
