Speaking as a local (of Fort Neef) what happens in the High Street and more pertinently to the survey, along Whitehorse Lane, has next to no consequence to anyone from the Heath.

The main roads in the area are London Road, Thornton Road, Brigstock Road, Bensham Lane, Melfort Road and Parchmore Road.

The area around the ground really comes under South Norwood and the area nearest to Whitehorse Road is West Croydon - bit of a technicality, but I don’t think most of the locals really care about the history or the geography of the area these days, which probably goes some way to explaining how out of sorts the whole area that can generally be defined as North Croydon has become.

The High Street is not bad really, but can hardly be regarded as a focal point of the community unless they happen to live on adjoining roads, which is a small fraction of Thornton Heath.

Of course, the main point is that the whole area needs an economic upturn - which is going to take much greater investment and better employment opportunities in as well as upgrading local infrastructure than merely around Selhurst Park.
