Council to take Croydon Communities Consortium to Court

In response to an email request from me for an up-date on the Council’s dispute with Croydon Communities Consortium, Chief Executive Nathan Elvery says (1 September):

‘Thank you for your email, given the on-going matter between the Council and the CCC I would suggest this remains a matter between our organisations. I believe Elizabeth is fully up to speed and the next steps for the Council will be legal action.’

Elizabeth is Elizabeth Ash, the Consortium Chair, who was re-elected at the July AGM.

I have lived in Norbury since July 2011. I blog on Croydon, Norbury and history events,news and issues. I have been active on local economy, housing and environment issues with Croydon TUC and Croydon Assembly. I have submitted views to Council Committees and gave evidence against the Whitgift Centre CPO and to the Local Plan Inquiry. I am a member of Norbury Village Residents Association and Chair of Norbury Community Land Trust, and represent both on the Love Norbury community organisations partnership Committee. I used to write for the former web/print Croydon Citizen. I co-ordinate the Samuel Coleridge-Taylor and Croydon Radical History Networks and edit the North East Popular Politics history database. I give history talks and lead history walks. I retired in 2012 having worked in the community/voluntary sector and on heritage projects. My history interests include labour, radical and suffrage movements, mutuality, Black British, slavery & abolition, Edwardian roller skating and the social and political use of music and song. I have a particular interest in the histories of Battersea and Wandsworth, Croydon and Lambeth. I have a publishing imprint History & Social Action Publications.
