The Site is triangular in shape and covers an area of approximately 0.1ha. The existing buildings were formerly occupied by a bathroom retail store and a plumber’s merchants, but both have now vacated the premises.
The existing buildings on the Site have reached the end of their lifespan. It is considered that a redevelopment of the Site provides the best prospects of securing long-term employment use at the Site alongside new modern residential homes.
Planning permission was submitted in February ’21 for the demolition of the existing buildings and erection of 60 new homes, commercial floorspace (Use Class E, F.1 and F.2), and associated landscaping, access, car, and cycle parking.
A resolution to grant planning permission, subject to the execution of a S.106 legal agreement, was awarded by the London Borough of Croydon’s Development Control Committee on 9 September ’21.
The intention is to progress with the detailed design at speed and commence work on site as soon as possible.
