Westfield will build its third shopping centre in Croydon, bigger than the centres at both Shepherd's Bush and Stratford. Here's a computer animation of how it will look.
Developers working on the planned overhaul of Croydon centre say they believe it would act as a catalyst for wider regeneration and change. Tonight the council granted planning permission for the £1bn project. The application will now be considered by the Mayor of London on Wednesday.
The £1bn plans for Croydon include:
- 5, 000 permanent jobs
- 300 shops
- 400-600 homes
- New restaurants
- Multi-screen cinema
- Bowling alley
