Release begins: The council successfully bid for the funding through the Greater London Authority’s New Homes Bonus scheme, which will bring about a series of major high street improvements.

These include a combination of improvements to the public realm and to building and shop fronts, as well as support for new and existing businesses.

Members of the public can meet council officers and local councillors from 2.30pm to 4.30pm on Saturday, 28 March, at St Alban the Martyr Church Hall, Grange Road, Thornton Heath, CR9 8SR.

This also includes a high street walkabout.

The proposed project focuses on 1km of high street stretching from Thornton Heath Library to the Whitehorse Lane roundabout, encompassing the train station and leisure centre.

Work is scheduled to be completed by 2017/18.

Councillor Alison Butler, deputy leader and cabinet member for homes and regeneration, said: “This funding will transform Thornton Heath, one of our major district centres. It demonstrates that we are committed to making regeneration happen borough-wide and not just in the town centre.

“We want to make sure residents and businesses in Thornton Heath are able to have their say as to how they would like to see these improvements delivered, and we’d be delighted to see them at the event on Saturday, 28 March.”

Release ends.

Release sender: Croydon Council.
