MAYOR OF LONDON PRESS RELEASE:
Green light for Croydon Partnership’s plans to overhaul the Whitgift Centre
More than 500,000 sq m of new shops and restaurants
Scheme will also deliver nearly 1,000 new rented homes including those for London Living Rent
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, today approved a major development which will give a major boost to long-term plans to regenerate Croydon town centre.
The redevelopment of the Whitgift shopping centre by the Croydon Partnership – a joint venture between Westfield and Hammerson – will create 7,000 jobs, deliver nearly 1,000 new homes, and provide the local community with brand-new leisure facilities and rejuvenated public spaces.
More than half-a-million square metres of shops and restaurants will be built, alongside space for future student accommodation or a hotel.
Sadiq gave the project the green light after it was approved by Croydon Council’s planning committee.
