New website for residents to get involved in local issues
A new website has been launched for residents to get involved in what’s happening in their community.

The Get involved site, which can be accessed here, 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 here.)

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.
