Developing Croydon update at 28 November

Sadiq Kahn in Croydon

It has been pointed out to me that I was confused in my blog posting dated 24 November when I said that London Mayor Sadiq Khan had addressed the Develop Forum Conference on 22 November. He did not. He spoke the next day at Croydon Council’s Economic Summit.

Croydon Economic Summit

This took place on 23 November. The main difference was that the Summit was free to attend. Apparently it now seems that the afternoon sessions of Develop Croydon could be attended free of charge. Details of the key speeches at the Summit can be seen at:
