A public meeting is to take place where people will be able to have their say on how nearly £3m in improvements can be delivered to Thornton Heath.
A total of £2.7m is to be invested in Thornton Heath High Street and Brigstock Road over the next three years.
And now residents and businesses in the area are invited to a public event being held from 10am to 12.30pm on Saturday, 21 November at St Alban the Martyr Church Hall, Grange Road (entrance on Whitehorse Lane), SE25 6RD.
Following a well-attended public event in March, this meeting will explore where and how the improvements can be delivered, including public realm, better signposting, building frontage enhancements and support for local businesses.
Building frontage improvements will start next year with public realm works beginning in spring 2017, and due for completion in 2018.
“Investing in our district centres is a major priority for this council, and Thornton Heath is a key focus of our wider regeneration plans for the borough.
“This is a significant amount of money we are spending on improving Thornton Heath, which is in great need of investment.
“It will change the face of the area, and we want local residents and businesses to be a part of this process, so we’d really welcome their attendance at this meeting.”
Councillor Alison Butler, deputy leader and cabinet member for homes, regeneration and planning
Notes to editors
The £2.7m funding is from the government’s New Homes Bonus grant, which is based on the amount of extra council tax revenue raised for new-build homes, conversions and long-term empty homes brought back into use in Croydon.
