 The report has been sent to all Labour Councillors and a meeting held with the relevant Chief officer. 

The working party report and additional views  formed the background to the workshop on the local economy at the CTUC Croydon Assembly and further discussion will take place at the local economy and housing working groups since then, including the drafting of the Assembly manifesto.
