Local Planning App

CVRA Local Planning Application Web Site

The CVRA are pleased to announce that the above-mentioned application will go live in June 2018 covering all roads and post codes covered by your Association and is available for use by all CVRA residents free of charge and is updated weekly with planning application related information.

This web service is the first of its kind to be available within the UK. It makes planning application information available in a convenient customised website suitable for Residents’ Associations. The site has been designed and provided by Geoff James of Local Planning Apps.

The service currently reports planning applications and appeals related to the Croydon and Bromley councils and is currently used by seven other Croydon Residents’ Associations.

The application can be accessed either by a link on the CVRA web site (http://cvra.org.uk/) or through the Local Planning Apps web site (http://www.localplanningapps.co.uk/mainsite/clients.html) and clicking on our CVRA link.
