We Made That and Hatch Regeneris recently developed an evidence base and action plan for the London Borough of Croydon to support their bid to become one of London’s first Creative Enterprise Zones. Croydon’s creative sector has experienced strong growth over the last five years, with a 93% increase in the level of employment. This is the highest growth rate of any of Croydon’s sectors, with more than 1,100 jobs created in five years and 120 more businesses operating than in 2011. The proposed Croydon Creatives CEZ will nurture this growth with a consortium of local creative and cultural organisations, educational institutions and development partners at its helm.
