On Wednesday 24th January, the Quest Academy parents at the Parents’ Forum were joined  by Echez Ubaka, the Croydon Council Regeneration Manager and Robert Ward, Councillor for Selsdon and Addington to present the Selsdon Community Plan.

The Selsdon Community Plan (2020-2025) is all about the community coming together to share a vision to improve Selsdon as a place, by developing key project priorities and actions to achieve this aim.

There was a lively debate about the local community and what it offers and how it could be improved. Ideas ranged from ways to improve the high street with the planting of trees and encouraging new business to regenerate the green spaces in and around Selsdon. More amenities and facilities were discussed alongside many suggestions as to what we could offer young people.

Many thanks to all who participated and I know that our parents’ views were gratefully received.
