In response to concerns raised by the local community about the impact of the increase in housing in Kenley, the Council secured funding from the Greater London Authority’s (GLA) Good Growth Fund (GGF) to appoint consultants to engage with the community to create a Community Plan for the area.

 

The draft Plan outlines priorities for investment in facilities, services and infrastructure identified by the community over the period from spring to autumn 2019.  During this time, the consultants engaged with over 700 Kenley residents, businesses and visitors to gather their views, at events focus groups, meetings with stakeholders and resident associations, and through business and online and street surveys.

The Fair Field public space

The Fair Field is an ambitious multi-million pound scheme to build a world-class public space in the heart of Croydon’s emerging cultural quarter. It will provide a stunning setting for the newly-refurbished Fairfield Halls, improve links with the rest of the town centre and create a destination space for communities and visitors alike.

Also known as College Green or Fairfield Gardens, the public space is only moments away from East Croydon station and the civic heart of Croydon around the Town Hall and Queens Gardens. It is part of an important network of existing and future public spaces in the town centre being delivered through private and council-led projects.

The project, scheduled for completion in 2022, sits alongside plans to transform the wider area into a cultural quarter with a new residential community. The council’s private development company, Brick by Brick, is leading on some of the area’s residential components.

The proposal for the Fair Field public space builds on the heritage of the area. It responds to the council’s brief which called for an innovative design that integrates water, public art, and lighting. Further information about the design proposals can be found at the upcoming public exhibition and will available online soon.

Children, Young People & Families Plan - Consultation

Jan 17 2020 to Dec 31 2020
Education and learning

Are you a child or young person in Croydon?

Do you work with children and young people?

Do you have ideas about how the council and its partners could work better with children and young people, and our communities?

Would you like to have your say? We would like to hear from you!

The draft Children, Young People and Families Plan sets out proposed outcomes and priorities that we, the council, along with our partners will focus on. The ultimate aim of the plan is to ensure good life outcomes for all children and young people across the whole borough.

It's been developed after speaking with some of our children, young people, families and partners in Croydon, and includes three key outcomes and six supporting priorities that we feel would address some of the key challenges we face as a borough. Now we want to hear if you think we’ve got it right.

This public consultation is now open until Wednesday 4th March 2020.

Community and life events, Environment, Planning and regeneration

Do you have a creative idea for how Croydon’s subways could be transformed?

Students, community groups, artists, architects, and more all submitted dozens of creative ideas for how the six subways in our town centre could be put to better use. Our expert panel has now selected the short-listed entries in each of the three categories: professional, non-professional, and under-18s.

Now we want to hear from you! Please give us your feedback in this survey on as many or as few of the ideas as you wish. Your comments will be given to the judging panel, and will be considered when selecting a winner.

Once the winners are selected, ideas will be reviewed to see if they are viable. We will then work with the winning and /or shortlisted individuals or groups to see if we can bring these ideas to life.

The deadline for public feedback is 23 February. A full list of entries is available as a PDF on our webpage.
