WESTFIELD CUTS CHARGES

WESTFIELD shopping centre yesterday bowed to pressure from retailers by dropping its service charges at its White City mall from £13.94 a sq ft to £12.98. Retailers were angered in September after the group hiked its fees sharply from the £8.50 initially agreed. Westfield said the reductions were part of a six month trading review that identified total savings of £4.1m across the portfolio.
