- Barratt London at Poplar Walk and Station Rd
The company is holding a public exhibition of its revised plans for the re-development of the area between Poplar Walk and Station Road, West Croydon on Monday 12 January, 4-8pm at the Church Hall at St Michael’s on Poplar Walk. This residential-led, mixed-use development, to be known as St Michael’s Square, is in one of the key areas within Croydon Council’s West Croydon Masterplan. As part of its on-going pre-application consultation with local people and the Council, Barratt has revised its plans to incorporate improved pedestrian accessibility to West Croydon station via a new public space behind St Michael’s Church. Note: the two tower blocks hardly enhance the heritage setting of the Church.
