September 2020: Planning Update from David Rutherford

Planning

Intensification of Croham Valley Road

The latest proposed development at 8 CVR (9 Flats), together with the currently pending planning application at number 3 CVR (7 Flats), plus the recently approved applications at numbers 5 CVR (2 Blocks of 3 Terrace Houses), 6 CVR (9 Flats) and the land R/O 31-33 CVR (8 Flats) not to mention the almost completed development at number 10 CVR (8 Flats), plus there’s a potential development of the Land to the R/O 4 CVR which together with the house is owned by the Croham Hurst Golf Club.
Croham Valley Road is not an intensification zone but you would definitely think it was based the afore-mentioned. I’ve emailed Chris Philp MP about this over intensification of Croham Valley Road.

Croydon – Local Plan Partial Review – Call for Evidence on Local Green Spaces
Only site within our area that was under this category is The Ruffet, which many residents provided information back to the Council on why this site should have some level of protection to safeguard it from potential development. We’re still waiting to hear if this has been successful.

Croydon Planning – Some Changes Detected
Since the start of 2019 across the South of the Borough 30 planning applications for the demolition of detached properties to be replaced with up to 9 flats or a mixture a of both flats and houses have been refused planning approval under the Council’s delegated authority or at Planning Committee meetings and another 22 similar planning applications have been withdrawn, presumably in many case because of advice from the Planning Department that they were not going to obtain approval.

There continues to be many more planning applications from developers for the conversion of larger houses into flats and at the same time adding extensions to these houses, this is also happening to a much lesser extent even with semi detached houses. Also there has been a marked increase in the number of applications for the conversion of properties into Houses of Multiple Occupancy (HMO’S)
