Quail Gardens, Selsdon

Quail Gardens, Selsdon


The Oakwood Group have negotiated the purchase of this residential site in Selsdon, on a subject to planning basis.

The site is situated on the south eastern side of Quail Gardens and currently forms part of the garden of Hallinwood Bungalow, 46 Quail Gardens.  It lies adjacent to a Site of Nature Conservation Importance and Metropolitan Green Belt.

An application for full planning permission has recently been submitted to the London Borough of Croydon for 15 x three bedroom houses, arranged in two opposing terraces.

The layout of the terraces would be perpendicular to Quail Gardens.  This takes advantage of the depth of the existing site to allow for adequate separation between the proposed structures and their surroundings.

The proposed houses are relatively traditional in design with pitched slate effect roofs, red brick and with feature brick detailing.  Many local buildings are simple and well-proportioned in their appearance and execution with significant amount of repetition.  These characteristics have been applied to the proposed development.

Soft landscaping will seek to provide variety in height, texture, colour and seasonality with a strong emphasis on attracting insects and birds.

A full planning application was submitted in February 2019 and a resolution to grant permission was secured in June 2019.
