London Borough of Croydon

West Croydon has all the ingredients of being a fantastic place. Its excellent transport infrastructure, established rich mix of uses, built heritage and diverse local community - along with its adjacency to the commercial heart of central Croydon - all add up to a development area with great potential. The arrival of the East London Line in summer 2010 has put Croydon on the tube map for the first time.

The West Croydon Masterplan takes a careful, coordinated approach to ensuring the delivery of a new station and interchange, optimised development potential and a transformed and well-connected public realm.

The master planners have been collaborating closely with public and private sector stakeholders to develop a plan that balances short-term delivery and long-term public benefit, and a narrative that sets the scene for a cluster of new buildings.

Strategic objectives

  • A new doorway to Croydon with an improved station and transport interchange
  • Love the good things about West Croydon
  • Better integration and links to the town centre
  • Inclusive high quality public realm and more space for pedestrians
  • Coordinated high quality built environment that complements the town centre and residential areas
