Henderson set for public battle over Smithfield redevelopment

The site was previously owned by Thornfield, whose plans for Smithfield were rebuffed by a public inquiry in 2008. Thornfield subsequently went into administration and the property was acquired by Henderson in 2010. The historic market buildings have been derelict for more than 30 years.
Henderson has estimated that the development will cost it £160 million, and has already spent approximately £4 million on structural improvements to the railway system beneath the market.
