Croydon Advertiser: "Investors given guided tour [including by Hammerson] to show the best Croydon has to offer"

Link to web site

"GUIDED tours might be more synonymous with pensioners’ holidays, but potential investors in Croydon are being wooed with just that.

"Representatives from a diverse range of businesses, from housing associations to equity firms, all took part in the fifth tour last month, which is designed to win their hearts and minds and convince them that Croydon is the best place for them to do business.

"... One group hoping to play a key role in that improvement is the Croydon Partnership, the joint venture between Westfield and Hammerson to transform the town's retail centre, which gave an update on the progress.

"Speaking on last month's tour, Carolyn Kenney, development director of Hammerson [not according to the Hammerson web site - or has Mike McGuinness got the boot? Or maybe there are LOTS of development directors!], said they were now looking to start on site in early 2016, with the intention to open in autumn 2019. She said:
"We are confident that with the investment we bring, we can reinvigorate the town centre and it will mean other people are prepared to come into Croydon and invest and develop.

At least we are not operating here under a corrupt planning consent regime, unlike at Brent Cross." [She didn't say that.]
