"NEW plans for the redevelopment of the town centre would raise the roof of the Whitgift Centre – literally. Plans by Westfield's rivals, the Croydon Alliance, would involve shopping streets and squares, rather than massed covered malls.

"There will be more areas open than enclosed. The centre will feel less severe, as we go for streets and squares, not malls and courts."
