Croydon Communities Consortium to explore topics from accountability perspective

The purpose of the Croydon Communities Consortium is being refined as a result of discussion at its AGM and Open Forum on Monday 24 November. From now on the meetings will be structured partly around a topic addressing four principles for holding the Council and other bodies to account, while still retaining a section of the meeting for its open no agenda format allowing attendees to raise their issues.

The four principles are:

  • Public consultation and engagement methods
  • Good governance in public office and charities
  • Financial transparency
  • Equalities and inclusion

Following discussion of concerns about the private developers activities and the run-down nature of many parts of Croydon it was agreed to hold a special meeting looking at the needs of district centres.
