Croydon Partnership holds public consultation to present key updates on Croydon's growth zone.
The Croydon Partnership, the joint venture between Westfield and Hammerson, has announced details of a public exhibition to present updated plans for its £1.4 billion regeneration of Croydon’s Whitgift shopping centre.
Situated in the heart of Croydon’s shopping centre, the exhibition is hosted by members of the Croydon Partnership’s planning and development team and offers visitors key information and visual displays of the entire project with an overview of the newly proposed upgrades to the scheme.
Redevelopment of the shopping centre will bring:
- A new high quality shopping and entertainment destination in the heart of Croydon
- A major new department store in addition to a new Marks & Spencer store
- Over 300 shops, restaurants & cafes across three stores
- A family friendly leisure offer including a multiplex cinema with IMAX screen
- A safe and secure environment that is active throughout the day and into the evening
- Up to 1,000 new homes
- Improved car park space
