Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has rubber stamped plans for a £1.4bn rebuild of Croydon’s shopping centre.

The redevelopment of the Whitgift shopping centre by the Croydon Partnership, a joint venture between Westfield and Hammerson, secured council planning permission in November 2017. The mayor’s office has now given its approval too.

More than half-a-million square metres of retail space will be built, alongside space for future student accommodation or a hotel. Construction is expected to start in 2019.

Croydon Council deputy leader Alison Butler said: “I'm delighted another milestone in this project has been reached and the mayor of London has approved the Croydon Partnership's plans. The redevelopment of the Whitgift Centre will transform Croydon town centre and today's green light brings us a step closer to the works getting under way.”
