Do you have a passion for London Road? 


At SavetheHighStreet.org, we take a holistic approach to supporting high street communities, believing that success at place-level and at business-level are tightly connected.


SaveTheHighStreet.org have been engaged by Croydon Council to help local high streets, local shopkeepers and local champions on London Road to drive footfall.


We are pleased to be able to introduce London Road to a programme of Community Led Placemaking and a Business Accelerator Programme both designed to encourage footfall on London Road and improve the vitality of your local high street businesses and your local high street communities.


Join our “Community Placemaking Programme”

Are you a local high street business owner; high street champion; part of a local business group; a community leader, property manager, landlord, local influencer; student, part of the local media or simply passionate about London Road?


Together, we will gather unique insights and build an evidence-based plan that will identify the quick-win actions that we can take together, alongside putting longer-tern plans into place that will stimulate local footfall, increase high street sales and community based economic growth and the well being of the London Road Community.

Want to find out how to get involved?
