Kenley Community Plan (KCP) Published (April 2020 to March 2025)

In response to concerns raised by the local community about the impact of the increase in housing in Kenley, Croydon Council secured funding from the Greater London Authority’s (GLA) Good Growth Fund (GGF) in 2019 to engage with the community to create a community plan for the area.

The Kenley Community Plan (KCP) outlines priorities for investment in facilities, services and infrastructure identified by the community as it experiences growth and change. Read the Kenley Community Plan.

The engagement period to produce the Plan ran from March to September 2019 during which time over 700 Kenley residents, businesses and visitors gave their views at events, focus groups, meetings with stakeholders and resident associations, and through business and online and street surveys.  The draft Plan was published between 21 February and 22 March 2020 for public feedback via the council’s Get Involved survey platform. Read a summary of the feedback.  

In late 2019, the council submitted a successful funding application to the GLA’s Good Growth Fund (GGF) for the “Connecting Kenley” programme to support the delivery of priorities that meet the GGF’s funding criteria. In March 2020, the council was awarded £878,766 grant funding towards this £2.1m three-year programme. More information can be found in this press release.

The publication of this final Kenley Plan was delayed until Spring 2021 to ensure the final plan took account of changes to the Connecting Kenley programme necessary as a result of both the COVID-19 pandemic and the council’s financial situation. 

Kenley Community Plan (KCP) and Connecting Kenley Programme (CKP): Update Spring 2021

The Kenley Community Steering Group (KCSG) has been established to inform the delivery of the Connecting Kenley programme and guide the prioritisation and delivery of other projects in the Kenley Community Plan.  Drawn from residents’ associations, community organisations, faith groups and Friends groups and coordinated by the council, the KCSG held their first meeting in February 2021.

The Connecting Kenley programme is a comprehensive programme of works which aims to provide public realm, community space, sustainable transport, air quality and business support to bring together different parts of the community and provide the civic infrastructure required to enable good growth in Kenley.

The programme is underway and updates and news of how you can get involved will be published on these pages.
