I am writing to let you know about the next opportunity for you to comment on the development of The Old Town Masterplan.
We are going to be exhibiting the emerging ideas for the masterplan for you to comment on at the following times:
Thursday 20th June – 5.30pm-9pm
Saturday 22nd June – 11am – 3pm
You are welcome to drop in to the exhibition at any point during its opening hours.
Venue: The Connected Croydon Project Shop, 81 Church Street, Old Town, Croydon, CR0 1RH
(This is the shop unit that was previously occupied by The Army Surplus Store)
At the exhibition you will be able to see how the ideas that were discussed at the Ideas Workshop that was held on March 26th in Matthews Yard have been integrated in to potential proposals for The Old Town area.
We really hope you are able to attend the exhibition and can provide feedback to inform the further development of the masterplan in advance of formal public consultation on a draft masterplan later this year. I would also be grateful if you could tell your neighbours about this event so that the masterplan is informed by as much of your local knowledge as possible.
I will be in touch again to let you know the dates for the formal consultation when they become available.
The purpose of the Old Town Masterplan is to improve the built environment for people living, working and shopping in Old Town. It will be a Planning Guidance Document that sets the parameters for development of the buildings, streets and public spaces in Old Town and also looks at how movement in, out and around the area could be improved over the next 20 years. It will also recommend how the heritage assets of the area – its treasured buildings and historic street patterns - can be preserved, enhanced and celebrated. The Old Town Masterplan is funded by the Mayor of London and Croydon Council.
