Our team are transforming the western side of Central Parade in New Addington to provide community spaces, state-of-the-art sports facilities and eight new family homes.

The new flexible space features two multi-purpose halls, a café, meeting rooms, offices and dressing rooms, with an option of licence applications for booked events. A demountable stage is available for community shows and the annual pantomine.

The development will provide high quality and modern leisure and community facilities acting as a significant upgrade to the current provision in the area. A row of eight family sized townhouses will provide an appropriate street frontage to Chertsey Crescent with dedicated car parking.

The leisure and community facilities will provide the following:

  • Community Halls
  • Community Café
  • 6 lane 25m pool with spectator seating for up to 150 people
  • Learner pool
  • Wet changing village
  • Large Fitness gym incorporating a spin studio
  • Dry change facilities
  • Multipurpose studios (fitness and community)
  • Indoor 4 court sports hall with associated changing facilities
  • Public realm upgrades

The council’s Connected Croydon street improvement project also brought £1m of upgrades to Central Parade including:

  • widening and repaving the footways in quality materials to make the Parade’s more attractive
  • installing a new southbound bus stop and footpath to link it to the Parade
  • upgrading parking arrangements for blue badge holders
  • installing more bins, benches and cycle parking

The project follows a string of work for the London Borough of Croydon where are team has created, among others, Oasis Academy, a new secondary school with focus on sport and science and Harris Academy, a Sunesis design school; the 8th school we have built in Croydon. Our people have also spent a lot of time working with community projects such as Croydon charity Lives not Knives to leave a lasting legacy in the area.
