Public Consultation for 367 Baring Road, Grove Park

A public consultation event is scheduled to be held next Thursday (15th March) at The Ringway Centre, in order to present our initial development proposals for 367 Baring Road, Grove Park.

The proposal is for the demolition of 367 Baring Road and the creation of an access road to serve a sympathetically designed scheme of eight houses.

We are determined to develop a scheme which everyone can be proud of and your input is fundamental to achieving this goal.

Copies of the display boards showing our initial proposals for the site can be viewed by clicking here.

This event is open to anyone and we look forward to seeing you there if you are able to attend.  If you are unable to make the consultation, please do not hesitate to contact us, as we would welcome the opportunity to discuss the project directly with you.

Planning Permission Granted for Milton House, Croydon

The London Borough of Croydon have today delegated outline planning permission for our Milton House, Croydon site. The outline consent allows for the change of use and partial redesign of the current building to provide between 20 to 30 flats.

Milton House was the commercial element of a larger mixed use redevelopment, which is currently under construction. Milton House was originally intended to be delivered as light industrial commercial floorspace, but following an extensive marketing campaign, it was ascertained that there was no demand from any commercial operators for the space.

An initial Computer Generated Image of the proposal has been included below.

The Reserved Matters application is due to be submitted shortly.

Planning submitted for Milton House, Croydon

Outline Planning Permission has now been submitted for the residential conversion of the commercial element of our Milton Road, Croydon development.

The wider development, which was awarded planning permission in early 2015, allowed for the creation of 81 new residential homes and a 20,000 sq ft standalone commercial building.

The commercial accommodation has been actively marketed for over 18 months, but there has been no meaningful interest from commercial occupiers to date. With this in mind, and to avoid having a vacant building blighting the landscape, we have been holding discussions with the London Borough of Croydon to seek a change of use to residential.

The application should be validated in the coming week and we hope to have a favourable decision in December this year.

Exciting three-storey office building available as part of Milton House scheme

A brand new stand-alone office building is being made available for let or purchase as the high-quality mixed use Milton House scheme in Croydon moves a step closer towards completion.

The shell of the premises, on the corner of Milton Road and Milton Avenue, are being brought to the market by the Oakwood Group, who are delivering a £21million development which will also see the creation of  81 new homes near to the town centre.

Within easy reach of both West Croydon and East Croydon railway stations, the officebuilding consists of almost 1,900 square metres across three floors and comes with permission for B1(c) light industrial use.

The shell of the premises will be available for an incoming tenant to commence their fit-out works in late 2017.

Matt Arnold, director of the Oakwood Group, said: “We are immensely proud and excited to be involved in the transformation of a site which had lain derelict for over a decade.

“By replacing the decaying commercial premises, which had blighted the area, with a high-quality mixed use scheme, we truly believe we are driving the ongoing regeneration of this part of Croydon.”

The premises, which come complete with a dedicated loading bay and four on-site parking bays, are being made available on a new full repairing and insuring lease. However, the freehold interest may also be available.
