Streatham Town Centre has a new permanent manager. Angelina Purcell MBE takes on the role of Streatham Town Centre manager to help shape work and projects to make the area an even better place to live, work or visit. Her appointment builds on plans to guide the regeneration and future development of the area, support local businesses, and encourage residents to shop locally.
She comes to Lambeth with a wealth of skills and experience having previously managed neighbouring Croydon’s town centre and holding the Chief Executive of Croydon Chamber of Commerce post for three years.

Angelina comments on her new role saying: “Streatham is a fantastic area with lots of places of interest and lots of development opportunities both for the environment and for the local communities. My personal goal is to play an active and substantial part in driving up the pace and number of improvements for the area.”
