D Day

A decision on Croydon's Gateway site will be made by the summer, the planning inspectorate has announced.

The secretary of state will decide on, or before July 30, as to which developer (Arrowcroft or Stanhope) gets to build on the land already owned by Stanhope (which also has planning permission).

Congratulations to Croydon council for dragging this sorry farce on for so long, and for allowing the blight that the citizens of Croydon have had to suffer to continue.

The Gateway site, but for the council, would have been developed years ago.
