Masterplan for 'Mid Croydon'
Croydon Council is on the hunt for a team to work on a spatial masterplan for an 8ha site in Croydon
The site is an eight hectare area in the heart of Croydon Metropolitan Centre that sits between the Old Town, the Metropolitan Centre, and Croydon College and Fairfield Halls. The authority wants to mend and address the legacy of the unsuccessful 1960s St George’s Walk shopping precinct, and create quality public spaces.
Pre-qualification questionnaires must be submitted by 2 July.

Croydon Metropolitan Centre (CMC) is set for major transformation. Previous visionary work for ‘Vision 2020’ and ‘Third City’ has set the ambition to transform the CMC into a place that is fit for living, working and visiting in the 21st century. Now the Council is working together with the public and stakeholders on a series of masterplans to ensure change is delivered on the ground.
The Mid Croydon area is vital to the success of all the masterplans, and the regeneration plans for Croydon as a whole. The eight hectare area sits at the heart of the Metropolitan Centre, between the main shopping area to the north, the Old Town to the west, the fringe of the Metropolitan Centre across the flyover to the south and Croydon College and Fairfield Halls to the east.
Despite containing very special elements such as the Town Hall, the Clocktower, the Queen’s Gardens, the headquarters of Nestle UK and the listed art deco Gas Board Building, the area suffers from poor quality public realm and the legacy of the unsuccessful 1960s St George’s Walk shopping precinct.
Croydon Council has plans for new Council Offices - the Public Service Delivery Hub - to be delivered through the CCURV Urban Regeneration Vehicle. The area’s significant development sites, history and built heritage, public realm, existing cultural and civic facilities and adjacencies to other major regeneration projects offer exciting opportunities for further change. In this context, a Mid-Croydon Masterplan Stakeholders Steering Group has been set up to work together to help develop a masterplan for the area.
Croydon Council invites expressions of interest to supply a spatial master planning and development service for Mid Croydon.
