Croydon is London’s second largest borough at the heart of an urban renaissance. It has aspirations and capacity for major residential and commercial growth as south London’s strategic hub.
Undergoing massive change, Croydon is London’s biggest growth centre with five ‘Planning Framework Masterplans’ now knitted together into a single dynamic vision, making Croydon a genuine market opportunity for international businesses.
Croydon is the hub of south-east England. Just 8.5 miles from the M25 motorway, and within 20 minutes of many central London railway stations. Gatwick airport is just 15 minutes by train, putting you within easy reach of over 200 destinations worldwide.
Croydon, strategically located 15 miles south of London and only 4 miles from the M25, has a large labour pool to satisfy corporates wishing to locate there. As a result, the town has attracted a large number of leading multi-national companies in the finance, insurance and engineering sectors. In total, more than 9,000 businesses have chosen Croydon as their home.
The Croydon Opportunity Area planning framework (OAPF) provides guidance for the planning, design and regeneration of Croydon’s metropolitan centre over the next 20 years.
Croydon.Digital is an initiative to increase the attractiveness of Croydon to tech and digital companies. Croydon.Digital is not just attracting companies, but workspaces, incubators and accelerators, too:
Sussex Innovation Centre at One Croydon is funded by Sussex University. This is a burgeoning hub for exciting new businesses, start-ups and scale ups.
TMRW & Byte Café provides Croydon with a thriving home for tech SMEs.
Croydon’s ambition is to become a world-class digital city and leading destination for growth, individual opportunity and innovation.
