Whitgift Centre News at 21 March

Inspector’s report on Whitgift CPO expected in May

Although Croydon Advertiser has reported mid- to late May as the ‘final’ and ‘crucial’ decision on the CPO for the Whitgift Centre, that is actually the date the Inspector hopes to complete and submit his report to the Secretary of State. In closing the inquiry he made it clear he would not be taking up suggestions from me that the Inquiry should be adjourned until more information was provided.
