Croydon Subway Competition

Croydon Council want to hear your ideas for how to make the most of some of our unused subways in the town centre. Be as creative as you would like, while keeping in mind the following:

  • How would the maintenance costs for the space be covered?
  • Is your idea a temporary or more permanent suggestion?

Both will be considered but they would like to know if you see it being short or long term.  Your proposal might be specific to one subway or could be rolled out to all.  Ideas should be in line with the Local Plan objectives listed in the brief - which you can download below.  Once received, ideas will be reviewed to see if they are viable.
