Exhibition to unveil new cultural and educational quarter

A two-day exhibition is to take place showcasing the plans to turn Croydon College, Fairfield Halls and the surrounding College Green area into one of London’s leading cultural and educational destinations.

The exhibition will be held in the Croydon Clocktower court area in front of Central Library, between 11am and 7pm on Friday, 6 November, and 11am and 5pm on Saturday, 7 November.

It will be an opportunity for members of the public to meet the project team, view the plans, ask questions and make comments on the scheme.

The plans see the construction of a new state-of-the-art building for Croydon College with modern facilities, on the Barclay Road annex site.

The neighbouring Fairfield Halls will also be transformed into a 21st century concert and events venue designed to attract leading acts from around the globe.

The project team behind the scheme includes Rick Mather Architects, a practice known for its work on the Royal Festival Hall in central London and the Lyric Theatre in Hammersmith, and Croydon-based consultants Mott MacDonald.

“We were delighted that cabinet agreed the plans to redevelop College Green, which includes a fantastic new home for Croydon College and the wholesale refurbishment of Fairfield Halls.

“This will create a vibrant cultural and educational destination in the heart of Croydon fit for the 21st century.

“Now it’s the chance for the public to see and comment on these hugely exciting plans.”

Councillor Alison Butler, deputy leader and cabinet member for homes, regeneration and planning
