A new website has been launched for residents to get involved in what’s happening in their community.
The Get involved site at getinvolved.croydon.gov.uk is a chance for people in Croydon to share their views and help decision making in their local area.
The new digital consultation and engagement platform is a user-friendly website that can be easily accessed via PC, tablet and smartphone. The site allows residents to search for any consultations, surveys and events taking place in their area.
Residents can log in using their My Account details and create a personalised profile based on their interests and where they live. (Those who haven’t registered for My Account can do so at www.croydon.gov.uk/myaccount)
In keeping with the council’s commitment to openness and transparency, a registered user’s profile page will also display feedback from any engagement activities they have taken part in.
“We’re trying to make things quicker and easier for our residents by going digital, and this is exactly what we’re doing in how we consult and engage with communities.
“The new Get involved website includes everything people need to know about their local area in one place, whether that’s a consultation, survey or events taking place nearby.
“It makes it easier for our residents to have their say and shape decision making that affects them, all at the click of a button.”
Councillor Mark Watson, cabinet member for communities, safety and justice
