The Selsdon Community Plan Steering Group met last week to review the latest draft of the Selsdon Community Plan (SCP). The Plan is about the community coming together to share a vision to improve Selsdon by developing key project priorities and actions. This five-year plan encompasses the “Place” of Selsdon as recognised by Croydon Council, which includes Addington, Addington Village and Monks Hill. The Plan documents the community consultation process and summarises the findings. More information can be found on the Selsdon Regeneration Webpage
In brief, over a thousand people were consulted through five community events and an online survey. They were asked what they liked about Selsdon, how they thought it could be improved and their priorities and ideas for the future. Based on this work, a set of ‘quick-win’ projects have been identified.
The intention is to refine this draft and formally submit it to Croydon Council before the year end. A follow up document, part two of the SCP, will be developed focussing on longer term priorities and projects. The steering group will develop these further, together with the wider community. The aim is to publish the first draft of this action plan in early 2021.
