Save Our Green Spaces

Croydon Council are asking local residents to get involved and help shape local policies and services. They are currently consulting on Green Spaces across Croydon.

As part of the Local Plan – Partial Review Croydon Council want to put our parks and green spaces forward for Green Space designation again. To help get this extra layer of protection they need to gather evidence needed to demonstrate how these spaces are special/important to local communities. To do this, they are asking Croydon’s communities to tell us how these spaces are used and why they are important.

It is unlikely that all of the sites mapped in the survey will successfully gain the designation, however, they know from other local authority planning reviews that evidence from local communities can make all the difference.

You can get involved by completing the survey ‘Local Plan Partial Review – Call for Evidence on Local Green Spaces’:

Select one of the green spaces from the map and tell us how you use it and why it is important to you. If you would like to share your views about more than one of the mapped spaces, please complete one survey for each space.

If you believe there is a green space in your area that meets the criteria set out above, but is not mapped on the survey, please complete our survey ‘Survey 2:Suggest an additional green space’:

The closing date for the surveys is midnight, 22 July 2019.
