IDEAS for redesigning the area around Reeves Corner will go on public display on Saturday. Working with traders and residents, the charity Sustrans has spent the last couple of months collecting views from local people about how the neighbourhood could be improved by better public realm and allowing public use of under-used spaces. The results of the Pocket Places Croydon project will be featured as part of a pop-up park being held in the Ann's Place car park at Reeves Corner between 11am and 3pm tomorrow. The ideas will be presented on boards and people will be able to prioritise what to take forward into planned design workshops. Visitors will also be able to sup a free smoothie made on a smoothie bike, enjoy face painting and listen to music from buskers. Kendra Inman, Sustrans projector coordinator for Croydon, said: "Our streets and places between them are the only public spaces that we all use everyday. "If well-designed, streets can be enjoyable places to stop and chat and where people of all backgrounds can walk or cycle, shop , play or simply meet together."
