Polaska, the long leaseholder of the Purley Pool site, has announced plans for a complete redevelopment of the area, to include two new pools, leisure centre, cafe and public realm, to accompany about 245 flats which will form a new “integrated retirement community”.

The next stage of the consultation process is on Thursday, 9 November at Christ Church Purley, and all are invited to attend the workshop. The aim is to update residents on the progress of the design and seek feedback on design details, such as materiality.

There will be two workshops covering the same topic on Thursday 9th November at Christ Church in Purley at 859-887 Brighton Road, CR8 2BN. The first workshop slot will run between 4pm and 5:30pm and the second between 6pm and 7:30pm.

To register your interest in attending one of these workshops, please sign up via the project website purleypool.co.uk. Places are limited and will operate on a first come, first served basis. Your place will be confirmed via email with a confirmation of times.
