Croydon on Location


With Tech City Croydon one of London's fastest growing TMT clusters, Boxpark opening up, and calls for the creation of an innovative new ‘Growth Zone', has Croydon's time finally come? Strategic plans are in place to deliver a £5.25bn regeneration programme for 23,600 new jobs and 8,300 new homes by 2031. So what is the vision for Croydon?

Croydon gears up for ‘snowball effect’


Croydon is starting to reap the benefits of the kind of approach taken at Stratford and the Olympics with a series of residential, retail and commercial projects taking shape. And as London is faced with the prospect of a million more people by 2030, the area is busy creating the right infrastructure and facilities to cope, whilst maintaining its heart and focus as a liveable community. The result is a ‘snowballing effect’ as developers and investors witness real change happening on the ground.
