Croydon deserves a champion like Boris

There’s no escaping that Croydon has a much-maligned public image – from mocking quips in shows like Blackadder to the eponymous ‘Croydon Facelift’. It can be difficult to find the good in a town like ours and to find the energy required to tackle our issues. But tackle them Boris has.
   
Boris is ensuring that Croydon isn’t stuck in the past by spearheading a regeneration revolution. Under the Mayor the town has seen £400,000 worth of funds given to Wandle Park to make it better for residents. He’s also ensured that £516,000 has been given to New Addington to help the high street’s potential for growth and development.

£20m for Croydon & Tottenham

Tottenham and Croydon will be transformed through major regeneration, Mayor of London Boris Johnson pledged today.

The areas, two of the worst hit during the recent riots, will benefit from a £20 million 'London Enterprise Fund' given by Government to be directly invested by the Mayor in Croydon and Tottenham. This fund comes on top of both Boris Johnson's £50 million regeneration fund, as well as the Outer London Fund.

Working with local residents, businesses and the councils, the Mayor and his team will identify how the fund can secure the maximum regeneration impact. The 'London Enterprise Fund' is designed to enable rapid improvements, so the money could be used for things like rebuilding affected properties, providing business rate relief, investing in transport infrastructure and supporting local employment.
