Answer for Tesco Development, New Addington

Answered By: 
The Mayor

My officers are in ongoing pre-application discussions with the applicants. When the application is submitted I shall respond formally to the Council outlining my initial views. Lord Rogers and Design for London officers have reviewed the current design proposals and have expressed concerns about the quality of design currently proposed. This is an important project for New Addington and Design for London and GLA officers are working with the applicant to achieve the highest standards of design, access and sustainability. Without prejudice to any future decision I may make, I broadly support for the principle of regeneration in New Addington, to provide a sustainable and vibrant district centre and to tackle social exclusion and substantial deprivation.
