SRA - "Working for the Community"


Selsdon is a leafy suburb in the south of Croydon within London's 'Green Belt'. Residents have easy access to green spaces, great transport links, a high life expectancy and a low crime rate.

This site, run by the SRA, will tell you more about our area, our community, our history and other useful information. Please click on the 'About the SRA' tab above to find out details of who we are, what we do, how you can get involved or how to contact us.  

As well as this website, we also have a Facebook group 'Selsdon Residents' Association', a Twitter feed '@selsdonresassoc ' and a monthly printed newsletter 'The Selsdon Gazette', which contains great articles and local stories. We also have local noticeboards around Selsdon containing news of current events.

2018 Council electoral boundary changes

From May 2018 Croydon Council changed the council electoral boundaries.  Our existing SRA Selsdon membership is now split over three different Council Wards. For more information on the background, the effect of the changes, a detailed list of roads and the SRA’s response please click here. 

In summary the SRA will continue to represent the whole of the SRA Selsdon membership and will consult with all relevant Councillors and other neighbouring Residential areas to ensure our combined views are heard.
