Croydon North: Labour hold

Steve Reed has been re-elected as the MP for Croydon North, with a decreased majority.

The Labour candidate beat Conservative Donald Ekekhomen by 24,673 votes, 7,692 votes less than the majority at the 2017 election.

Claire Bonham of the Liberal Democrats came third and the Green Party's Rachel Chance came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 5.3 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 56,000 people, 62.9% of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Three of the six candidates, Rachel Chance (Green), Chidi Ngwaba (The Brexit Party) and Candace Mitchell (Christian Peoples Alliance) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.

Westfield comes to Croydon

Croydon Wesfield
CROYDON PARTNERSHIP

A new £1.4bn shopping centre has been in the pipeline for Croydon for nearly a decade.

Westfield proposed a new flagship store in 2012, forming a partnership with developers Hammerson the following year.

The scheme was approved by Croydon Council in November 2017, but due to the size of the scheme it had to be scrutinised by the Mayor of London.

Sadiq Khan rubber-stamped the project approved by the Mayor of London in January 2018.

Mr Khan said the mall - a joint venture by Westfield and Hammerson - will "unlock Croydon's potential".

The south London shopping centre will replace the existing Whitgift Centre and create 7,000 jobs.

Work to demolish the existing Whitgift Centre will begin later this year, with Westfield Croydon aiming to be open by 2022.

Croydon: The Bellwether borough

Croydon town centre
BBC

Croydon was once London's bellwether seat.

Between 1979 and 2005 the party that won Croydon Central won the general election.

Since then politics has become more complicated, with coalitions and hung parliaments.

But the borough of Croydon remains resolutely middle of the road. The borough tends to be fairly close to the London average for unemployment, child poverty and education indicators.

As a whole Croydon voted 54.3% in favour of Remain in the EU Referendum.

But pick beneath the surface and it's more complicated. One of the three parliamentary constituencies, Croydon Central, voted to leave - if only by the finest of margins

And one ward, Ashburton, split 50-50 exactly, with both Leave and Remain getting 3,885 votes.
