What Kind Of Economy Do We Need in Croydon?

This is the title of an assessment by a Croydon TUC working party of Croydon Council’s Growth Plan and District Centre Investment; Growth For All report which was approved by the Cabinet in July. It has just been submitted to the Leader of the Council Tony Newman and lead Cabinet members Toni Letts and Alison Butler, and copied to Labour Councillors, in the hope that aspects of its analysis and its recommendations can influence the second stage report being considered by the Cabinet on 15 September. The Working Party will meet again to consider that second report with a view to submitting comments if advance of the meeting. It has requested that it be allowed to address the meeting.

The Executive Summary and Recommendations can be read here
