Croydon Council will be pushing Westfield ‘very hard’ make an announcement about how the £1.4 billion pound scheme is progressing.
It has been eight months since it was announced that the shopping centre is being reviewed – reducing the amount of retail and increase leisure options like cinemas and restaurants.
But tomorrow (Thursday, October 31) Croydon councillors are set to meet with Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield and Hammerson who are behind the plans.
On Tuesday (October 29) Councillor Paul Scott assured a meeting of the council’s overview and scrutiny commission that discussions with the international company have been going on in the background.
And changes to the plans could include keeping some existing buildings and including more office space.
Cllr Scott, cabinet member for regeneration, said: “It is reasonable to say that the Westfield team are looking at how they can change the scheme given that we have a rapidly changing environment.
“A lot of discussions are happening about how the scheme can evolve and change.
