Addition 20 January:

I pointed out that the launch clashes with the date of the Croydon Communities Consortium. I have suggested to the latter that it re-schedules its meeting. David Evans of the Commission support team has emailed me to say:

‘Please accept our sincere apologies for the clash of the launch of the Commission with the meeting of the Consortium and thank you for the constructive way that you have responded to this unfortunate occurrence.  …. The meeting on 28th January is the very first step in the yearlong process and I know that the Commission will be keen to enable you to submit evidence and fully engage with you as we move forwards. We would like to arrange a meeting with the Consortium to discuss how we might best do this.’

Further Addition 20 January:

I discuss the Commission on a new posting on Croydon Citizen:
