Can ‘the Croydon Facelift’ fix Greater London’s biggest borough?

The past five years have seen Croydon transformed from riot city to London's 'chosen city' – a front runner in the regeneration stakes as it re-invents its town centre into a desirable metropolitan hub with high-spec apartments, prestige offices and the capital's latest Westfield.
