Brick by Brick wins planning for 25-storey tower

Brick by Brick, the development company set up by Croydon Council, has secured planning permission for a 25-storey, mixed-use development that will create 128 new homes above flexible office, retail and leisure space in the town centre.

The company was set up in 2016 and by next year it will have delivered some 1,000 homes.

It expects to complete around 500 homes per annum thereafter.
