Happy to have done the survey, unfortunately the state of Thornton Heath (and how it can be uplifted) is really complicated and multi-layered.

You could improve all of the things suggested and it'll still be a secondary shopping area, because Croydon town centre (for all its own faults) with its national and international retail names is just down the road.

I think the locals of Thornton Heath have a High Street that fits the area quite well. It may look run down and the shops may be largely downmarket, but the local area needs budget retail, shops that are market stall in appearance and affordable everyday convenience shopping.

It meets a local need in an area with a fairly high % of poverty
