Who we are

Croydon is London’s fastest growing tech hub and was recently named the UK’s fastest growing economic area. With a £5.25 billion investment programme, including Westfield and Hammerson’s £1.4 billion retail and leisure destination, Croydon is attracting more visitors, residents, employment and wider investment into the area.

A combination of fast transport links to both Central London, Gatwick Airport and the popular south coast, and the increasing availability of Grade A office space at highly competitive commercial rents means now is the time to consider moving your business to Croydon.

The borough is already home to major employers including The Body Shop, HMRC and EDF Energy, which sit alongside hundreds of international businesses, start-ups and London’s newest tech incubator, TMRW. Croydon offers companies much more than an affordable place to locate their business, it also provides employees an exciting place to work and enjoy.

Our ambitions

“Croydon aspires to become a modern, European city, and is delivering a massive £5.25bn regeneration programme that is transforming the town centre, revitalising its district centres, and creating new offices, new retail, new homes and jobs for our rapidly growing population.”

“Croydon is a viable, well connected option for investment. Our growth strategy
is about putting local jobs and local homes at the heart of what we do. Strong partnerships are the foundation for the future; we need to find creative new
ways of working together with other agencies and the private sector, to deal
with the financial challenges ahead and deliver Croydon’s potential.”
