Croydon town centre is a major hub of activity for shoppers, workers and visitors – with East Croydon station welcoming more than 26,000 passengers a day.
Croydon is a growth borough and the town centre is covered by the opportunity area.
With an ambitious £5.25 billion regeneration programme, the exciting transformation of the town centre is underway. About a third of the new homes identified in the local plan are expected to be built in the town centre and the redevelopment of the Whitgift Centre is set to create a flagship retail destination.
To make sure Croydon benefits from this investment in the town centre, we need to:
- provide major new infrastructure to support our growing town centre
- keep Croydon moving while development is taking place
- make sure existing Croydon residents and businesses can access opportunities – for jobs, contracts and new homes
