We are thrilled to inform the community that we were successful in winning a bid for funds through the Mayor’s Good Growth Fund. In this we have an amazing opportunity to grow and improve SE25 over the next few years.
We are immensely grateful to everyone in the community who were actively involved in communicating your ideas for the area, through the series of engagement exercises held over summer and for the lead taken by the key players in the Croydon Council’s Regeneration Team, People for Portland Road, CarverHaggard, and the WeLoveSE25 Team.
Details of the bid will be available through the Councils website next week. In the meantime, there is preliminary information available in the press release from the Mayor’s office.
Looking forward to an exciting 2019 !!
We love South Norwood
Talk to people in our area and that’s the overwhelming message.
“Excellent location, great transport links.”
“Great green spaces”
“I like the sense of community and friendly atmosphere.”
“Its diversity is its strength.”
South Norwood is rich in heritage, cultural diversity and community spirit. It is going through changes, like many other areas of London. We want to ensure that our community has a say in those changes and thrives as a result.
We Love SE25 has been working with London Borough of Croydon since 2016 to develop plans for our area. In 2017 we published ‘Taking Control of Our Own Destiny – South Norwood’s Community Economic development Plan’ (CEDP).
Our new ￼Draft Community Plan takes the ideas from the CEDP and shows how, by working together, we could deliver the true potential of our area.
An application to the Mayor of London’s Good Growth Fund was submitted in October 2018. Read More
