Limitless Offer for Minerva

Property Week reports that the developer Minerva has received a £258M cash offer from Dubai property company, Limitless.

As I noted back in May, this bid may well affect the much delayed plans for Park Place.

The original plan was for work on Park Place to start in spring this year, with completion expected in 2012.

Croydon council now claim that it does not expect to receive a new planning application from developer Minerva until October or November this year.

Flower Baskets

I am pleased to see Croydon Council have started to festoon the town centre with flowers, both in hanging baskets and ground based tubs.

I do hope that they remember that the plants will need to be watered regularly though!
