Addiscombe Councillor and Chair of Overview & Scrutiny Committee, Sean Fitzsimons, is carrying out a review of the impact the Royal Mail Parcel Collection Office move from East Croydon to Factory Lane, and you can help by completing a Croydon Council survey on this at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/XY5KQYY
As part of this Scrutiny review Sean is meeting with a Director of Royal Mail and trade union representatives of the workforce, and he is seeking the views of local residents and businesses who have been affected by this move. The review is looking at how accessible is the new Parcel Collection Office, and what can be done to improve matters.
You may also have received an email from a local MP on this subject but this Scrutiny review is non-party political. It is being carried out under the remit of Croydon Council Scrutiny Committee, and any personal information provided will not be shared with any political party. If you have a query about this, you can email Scrutiny Officers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once the review is completed we hope to publish the findings this Spring 2015.
