Croydon

Croydon is a large major town in South London that was historically part of Surrey and is the principal settlement of the London Borough of Croydon. Croydon has a population of over 52,000 and lies on a transport corridor between central London and the south coast.

Croydon House Prices & Redevelopment

Croydon has historically been considered to be London’s cheaper cousin. The town has experienced the same type of property increases that have been witnessed across the rest of the capital but, as one would expect, not to the same extent as some of the ‘more fashionable’ boroughs. Amalgamating evidence from several sources, average house value inflation in Croydon has been somewhere between 7% and 9% over the past year.

While this is still some way below the seemingly meteoric rises witnessed in some areas of London, it still represents a substantial increase. Croydon is a growing market and investment in the area seems a decent bet at present. However the latest figures point toward a general slowing of house price increases as new restrictions on borrowing and the impending threat of rising interest rates take hold.

Croydon is currently undergoing an extensive period of regeneration under the guise of the Croydon Vision 2020 scheme. The Interchange offices have recently been rejuvenated by Canmoor and Carval investors and now provide 180,000 sq² of Grade A office space. The adjacent Saffron Square development, which is already  nearing completion, includes what will become the tallest tower in Croydon, the 43 storey Saffron Tower.

The New South Quarter, a large residential site near Wandle Park, is being constructed in phases by Barratt Homes. A £20m scheme to redevelop East Croydon Station has also recently been completed.

Perhaps the most significant regeneration project currently ongoing in Croydon is the £500m Ruskin Square Project, which which become an almost 2 million sq² mixed development area that will surely contribute significantly to Croydon’s economy.

Another significant regeneration scheme is Menta’s planned works on Cherry Orchard Road, which is intended to include a 54 storey mixed use skyscraper, a 16 storey hotel and an affordable housing development and community centre on a separate site on Cherry Orchard Gardens.

The Mid Croydon masterplan can be viewed as a general rebranding of the doomed Park Place redevelopment scheme formerly proposed by Minerva. Croydon Council now intend to create a new, primarily residential development in the area bounded by Park Lane, Katharine Street, High Street, North End and George Street. One of the major blocks to the advancement of this scheme is that Minerva still owns 6.1 acres of  the site and are likely to veto a mainly residential plan due to the lack of profitability involved.

However, there is widespread agreement that the area is in desperate need of regeneration and something will have to be done soon. Part of the Mid Croydon plan that is already underway is the installation of the Public Services Delivery Hub, which is intended to house the council’s workforce once it is completed. The council’s current offices at Taberner House will then be demolished to make way for a new residential development.

Almost all of these redevelopment projects have elicited a great deal of debate and, in some cases, generated a great deal of controversy, both within the local community and across the rest of London. However, perhaps the most controversial of all, is the proposal by Westfield & Hammerson to redevelop, extend and unify the Whitgift and Centrale shopping centres.

Croydon Culture & Economy

Croydon remains one of the most important transport hubs in the South East of the country, especially in terms of its rail and road links. Its status as a transport hub has led to a consequent growth in Croydon’s prominence as a centre for distribution.

Croydon has also grown into an important retail centre. It now boasts the largest retail economy in the South East outside Central London. The town has a large central shopping district. North End is Croydon’s principle shopping destination, with both the Centrale and Whitgift shopping centres both located on the pedestrianized street. Croydon is also considered to be the third largest centralised financial and business district in the London area, behind the Square Mile and Docklands.

Croydon is also establishing itself with increasing success as a tech centre. The town is now home to over 1,000 digital, creative and software companies.

Croydon Tradition & History

Although it lies on the old Roman Road from London to Portslade and there is evidence of a staging post being located there, as with many other places in the United Kingdom, the first recorded mention of Croydon that we know of is in Domesday Book, where it was recorded as having a church and a mill. Croydon, rendered Croindene, was under the suzerainty of the Archbishop of Canterbury, and remained so until well into Early Modern times. Croydon later developed as a successful market town and an important centre for leather tanning, brewing and the production of charcoal.

In the 19th century Croydon began to develop as a centre for leisure and recreation. The rise of Brighton as an even more substantial leisure resort in the late 18th century contributed to Croydon’s prominence as a stopping point for stage coaches on the route south from London.

The introduction of the Surrey Iron Railway in 1803 and the cutting of the Croydon to London canal six years later added to Croydon’s significance as transport hub. The arrival of the railways in the late 1830s made Croydon an important terminus on the British railway network,  position it still holds today.

The improved transport and communication links led to the concomitant growth of Croydon’s population, which increased 23 fold in the 19th Century. This expansion continued almost unbounded into modern times.
