The Council wrote to residents in June to inform them that the current shopping centre structure and Milford Towers will need to be demolished to enable the complete redevelopment of the shopping centre.
The Council and Catford Regeneration Partnership Ltd (CRPL) are currently seeking to negotiate a deal with local landowners including Tesco to redevelop the town centre to include a new Tesco store, new shopping centre, improved road network, new homes and new public spaces, as well as having the potential to provide new leisure facilities and new office space. This deal forms the commercial basis for the regeneration programme. Work to gain vacant possession of the site can’t start until the deal is agreed and the funding and all the other approvals necessary for the scheme to proceed are in place.
The Council currently propose to commence demolition of Milford Towers in 2015.
