Croydon Council is seeking residents’ views on the regeneration of Central Parade East, New Addington.

The council has secured £800,000 from the Mayor of London to create a safer and more attractive environment for locals and shoppers, including improvements to pavements, car park and access to shops.

A public consultation period is due to begin on January 28 to give the community an opportunity to give feedback on plans. The plans will be displayed in the New Addington Centre until February 25.

Councillor Jason Perry, cabinet member for planning, regeneration and transport said: “We know people in New Addington are as keen as we are to see this much needed regeneration happen and believe as we do that it is the right thing for their town, as it will bring not only community facilities but also much needed jobs and attract new investment.

“Residents have played a hugely important role in helping us to get to this stage,” he added. “We hope they and others will continue to contribute, working with us to make sure we get a development that really works for our local community and ensuring that we maximise the benefits for them.”

The improvements are part of continued regeneration by Croydon Council, following extensive developments in 2012 to the market square in Central Parade, community services and the local library.

Work is scheduled to begin in winter 2014 and be completed in 2015.
