Get involved online

Not everyone has time to attend face to face meetings so we’re developing ways to have your say online so getting involved is easier.

We will be hosting a range of resident participation activities through Facebook, where you will be able to join other residents in sharing your views online. This can be done in a variety of ways:

Full fibre broadband for residents

Croydon’s aim to become a smart city and digital hub moved a step closer as it signed off on an agreement with 2 network providers to supply its residential blocks with access to affordable fibre broadband internet.

After months of intense planning and negotiation, the council can now begin to close the digital divide for residents who have been unable to  take advantage of the benefits of full fibre broadband such as high speed internet connectivity and competitively priced television packages, having now finalised arrangements with suppliers, Community Fibre and Open Reach.

The council is determined that everyone should have the same opportunity to access technology, as it plays an ever more important role in modern life.

The installation comes at no cost to the council or residents, with residents only paying if they choose to subscribe to a package and free Wi-Fi will be provided by Community Fibre in communal areas of sheltered housing and council owned community buildings. Also in the pipeline, as part of the project, are apprenticeships for Croydon residents and support  for residents who are new to digital technology and what it can provide

For information on installation and support, see our Smart City page.
