Welcome to our second public exhibition showcasing our proposals to redevelop the former Sainsbury’s multi-storey car park and leisure centre site in Purley.

As you may be aware, Polaska has been developing proposals to redevelop this key brownfield site to deliver a new state-of-the-art public leisure centre, alongside specialist older persons housing and public realm improvements.

Polaska held a public consultation in June 2023 to gather thoughts from the local community on the emerging proposals.

Since then, extensive work has been undertaken by the project team, keeping conversations going with the community via workshops and meetings with local groups, discussions with officers at Croydon Council and a series of Design Review Panels. The proposals presented are the culmination of extensive work with local people and the Council to create a scheme that works for everyone.

Following the last consultation, we have looked at how we may be able to provide more parking which we outline on the parking page. We have also reduced the height of the proposed buildings.

Our proposals

A new swimming pool for Purley
Attractive public square
Specialist older persons housing
Gym facilities and fitness studios
Reprovision of public parking spaces
New, safe route from the high street to the station
Ground floor retail
Bistro / restaurant open to all
