About

Welcome to the Croydon Urban Room - a space to talk about the future of the North End Quarter and wider town centre. Through conversa­tions, stories, exhibitions and events, the Urban Room will bring together the views of those who live, work and visit the area to develop clear priorities for a plan to steer the town centre's recovery.

The aim of the Urban Room is to provide a space for Croydon residents, workers and visitors to share ideas, suggestions, concerns and aspirations for the development of the town centre. At the heart of the project is an objective to increase access and understanding of the planning process, focusing specifically on underrepresented communities. The ideas, conversations and strategies developed across the project will develop clear priorities for the future of the North End Quarter and the wider town centre.

The Urban Room project is part of the council’s Growth Zone (a partnership between, Croydon Council, Central Government, the Mayor of London and Transport for London to support growth in Croydon town centre).

The Croydon Urban Room is an award-winning project and was first piloted in 2019 as part of Croydon’s Local Plan Review and was previously based in a store used by Turf Projects in the Whitgift Centre. More information about the pilot can be found here.

The Croydon Urban Room objectives are to:

make planning visible and democratise access to it

EDUCATE

COLLABORATE & CREATE
connect communities, industry and the government

INSPIRE
empower individuals to participate in changes and decisions that relate to the built environment
