Croydon Council progress

Confident that Croydon Council is now on a sustainable pathway of continuous improvement, the Government-appointed Improvement and Assurance Panel for our Borough has now set out a plan to leave Croydon by July 2025.

The Improvement and Assurance Panel was originally appointed in 2021 to deal with the governance failures that allowed Labour to bankrupt our Borough, and I have worked closely with them since to help bring Croydon back to stability. I congratulate Mayor Jason Perry and his administration for reaching this milestone, which is a testament to the progress that has been made in governance, culture and decision-making since Labour were banished from office in May last year. Of course, there is more to be done – particularly in finance and housing – but I look forward to seeing more progress in the near future.
