The Copers Cope Area Residents’ Association on behalf of the Beckenham Town Centre Team submitted a bid to the Mayor’s High Street Fund to get some money to clear up the alleyways off the High Street. The Mayor’s fund has awarded Beckenham £20,000 for the Do Up Our Alley Project which will name, sign, clean up and improve the maintenance of the alleyways in Beckenham Town Centre.
The Town Centre Team had made a recommendation that the High Street alleyways be cleaned up as part of the TfL public realm improvements. Not all the alleyways will included in the improvement project so we will use the Mayor’s High Street Fund award to clean up some of the remaining ones. There are 15 High Street Alleys between the War Memorial and Beckenham Junctions and we hope to make the £20,000 pound stretch as far as it can.
