Croydon Council and the Purley Panel are inviting the Purley Community to create a plan that can be used to shape the future of Purley Town Centre and its immediate surroundings. The projects would not be funded by the council; instead the plan would be used to help influence developers working in the area. It would also be used to support the local community to seek funding opportunities for local projects.


We want to bring the community of Purley together to share their ideas and priorities. A project team led by Urban Symbiotics have started working with members of the community to identify key principles that ensure that future change benefits Purley. Based on these conversations they have set up a survey to capture more views from the wider community.


The “Purley Panel” is a community panel made up of passionate local residents, businesses and community groups who were approached early on in the project to help Urban Symbiotics understand some of the local issues and opportunities. This group of people represent the area’s diverse community and is made up of different age groups, faith groups, residents associations and business representatives.

The long-term vision for the Panel is for the panel to grow into a self-sufficient, representative community group capable of seeking funding that will help implement community projects. We hope that the Purley Panel will continue to operate beyond this project as a community network to identify, champion and deliver local initiatives.

The Purley Panel includes representatives from:

  • Purley BID
  • Purley Youth project
  • Purley and Woodcote Residents Association
  • Purley & Couldson Centre for the Elderly
  • Purley Masjid Mosque
  • Churches Together
  • Riddlesdown Residents Association
  • Diverse individuals and residents, including local mothers and young people
