Answered By: 
The Mayor

At present I do not believe there is a need for an MDC at Croydon.  Last year I jointly published the Croydon Opportunity Area Planning Framework with the Council and this sets out a clear vision for the development of the town centre. Since publishing the document, good progress has been made in bringing forward the joint redevelopment of the Whitgift Center with the Westfield and Hammerson scheme being granted planning permission earlier in late 2013.
