Billion pound plans for Whitgift Centre set for October decision by Croydon Council
Plans for the Croydon Partnership's £1bn redevelopment of the Whitgift Centre will not go in front of the strategic planning committee this month.
It had been expected the developers plans would be considered by Croydon Council in the next few weeks, but work on the final details of the scheme are still ongoing.
The shopping centre revamp will result in 1.5m sq feet of retail and leisure space, creating over 5,000 permanent jobs and between 400 and 600 new homes.
A decision on the plans is now expected in October as the developers finalise detailed documents needed to support their application.
A spokesman for the Croydon Partnership said it was still working towards its original timetable for delivery, with construction starting in 2015 and the centre opening in 2017.
