The Croydon Meanwhile Use Toolkit is one of a number of projects that will encourage and enable activation of Croydon’s underutilized spaces with enterprising new uses. The Toolkit has been designed to provide practical steps, essential resources and some key case studies for setting up a Meanwhile Use in the borough.
For those looking to start a Meanwhile Use from scratch or accommodate activities already on the ground, this toolkit provides information and inspiration on how to make the project successful. The site also includes an interactive ‘Meanwhile Map’ as a centralised resource about temporary use in the borough, to which users can submit their projects.
The project is being delivered as part of the Connected Croydon programme; a series of coordinated public works to improve Croydon’s streets, squares and open spaces, funded through an investment by the Mayor of London’s Regeneration Fund
