Budget boost for Croydon
18/03/2015 14:44:00


The Chancellor, George Osborne, along with the Mayor of London, today announced funding to help Croydon Council provide the infrastructure we need to transform Croydon town centre:

“London is the global capital of the world and we want it to grow stronger still. That is why we are investing in the Croydon Growth Zone, proposed and championed by Gavin Barwell. This will support delivery of over 4,000 homes and 10,000 jobs, securing Croydon’s position as an economic hub in Greater London”.

Boris Johnson said: "Today’s announcement of funding to unblock Croydon’s ambitious infrastructure projects is the result of a great campaign by local MP Gavin Barwell. I’m delighted that the Croydon Growth Zone is up and running."

I’m grateful for their support and I'm delighted with the Government and GLA's continued support for Croydon's Growth Zone. Today's news will enable Croydon Council to fund the infrastructure we need to transform town centre. I hope that I’ll be able to work with the Labour administration at the Town Hall further in the next Parliament.
