Dingwall Road Redevelopment Gets Personal

As predicted on this site some time ago, the redevelopment of Dingwall Road will take an eternity; as the council and the two development companies, Arrowcroft and Stanhope, battle it out for supremacy with regard to their preferred plan.

You will recall that Stanhope own the land and have one set of plans for redevelopment, Arrowcroft have another set of plans which includes an unnecessary arena (the preference of the Council).

The Times reports today that Adrian Dennis, a Croydon Councillor, has abused parliamentary privilege and made inaccurate allegations against the chairman of Stanhope.

Needless to say, lawyers are now involved; thus complicating and worsening the already fractious relationship between the Council and the developers.

The losers in this will, of course, be the citizens of Croydon; who have to endure the eyesore, and canker, in the heart of Croydon that is Dingwall Road.
