"In a decision announced this morning communities secretary Hazel Blears has rejected the council-backed Arrowcroft arena, homes and offices scheme planned for the Gateway site at East Croydon."
A lot of good people put in much time, effort and energy into opposing this scheme, today is their day.
Let us not forget that had the council not tried to push through this unwanted scheme, the eyesore that is Dingwall Road would have been redeveloped by now.
The people who have suffered because of the council's arrogance are the citizens of Croydon. It is now time for high level resignations from the council.
