Answered By: 
The Mayor

The redevelopment of Cane Hill will deliver up to 675 new homes, of which 25% will be affordable and 80% will be family-sized. It will create new public open space and provide access to the surrounding countryside. The development will provide circa 3,000 sq.m. of new commercial uses aiding the regeneration of Coulsdon Town Centre. On the basis that for every home built two jobs are created, the redevelopment is expected to create around 1,350 jobs.
