Boris: I love Croydon

I’m pleased to announce that the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson has pledged to give £23 million pounds to Croydon in a bid to push regeneration and return our town to its “former glory”.

The funding will help to regenerate areas such as Wellesley Road, Bedford
Park Road, Lansdowne Road, George Street and Fairfield Halls. Boris spoke passionately and urged investors to “help make Croydon great again.”

This is welcome news for Croydon as we need investment in our town. Our Council Leader Cllr Mike Fisher agrees stating: "Croydon is committed to investing in major regeneration. The funding from the Mayor of London will help us realise many of our ambitions. Coming so soon after the Westfield announcement this shows there is a real buzz about Croydon right now."
