Answer for Street Markets

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Croydon Town Centre is listed as one of 28 opportunity areas in the London Plan. I am keen to work with the appropriate borough councils to prepare planning frameworks for each of these areas. An opportunity area planning framework for Croydon town centre would be the right way to identify and address the problems being experienced by Surrey Street market, which I consider to be an important feature of the town centre. To date, Croydon Council has not accepted my offer, repeatedly made, for such joint working.
