According to Property Week, Arrowcroft and Croydon Council are about to make an offer to Stanhope Schroders for the Croydon Gateway site.
Paul White of Frogmore (the company that is providing finance for the arena) is quoted by Property Week as saying:
"Notwithstanding the fact that we have now been told there is an overage* provision, that won't get in the way of negotiations on our acquiring Stanhope and Schroders' interest in the site."
*Overage provision is a condition attached to the sale of land, where anyone buying the site would pay more if or when planning permission for the site is granted.
However, don't worry, it should be noted that there is a £47M to £55M discrepancy between the two sides over how much they think the site is worth.
The fact that the council and Arrowcroft are looking to make an offer, before the end of the inquiry, indicates that they don't believe that they are going to win.
