Planning Applications (scroll down for this list of applications in progress)

Please comment (in favour or against) whenever you can, this helps Council Planners support residents' views. 


The best comments are those that relate to the planning framework. Below are some reasons you could use in your comments.  You can’t object on the basis that the development will reduce the value of your own property.

  • Layout and density of building (ie accomodation for too many people)

  • Over development of site

  • Loss of light or overshadowing (relevant for immediate neighbours)

  • Overlooking / loss of privacy (relevant for immediate neighbours)

  • Visual amenity (eg. removing the chimneys)

  • Adequacy of parking (relevant for those living in the same road)

  • Traffic generation (relevant for those living in the same road)

  • Noise and disturbance resulting from use

  • Effect on listed building and conservation area

  • Landscaping (loss of trees / any green garden)

  • Design, appearance and materials

There are two colourful and informative documents which tell residents everything there is to know about Croydon's conservation areas:

The first, Conservation Area General Guidance, giving as you'd expect, general guidance. Click here to download.

The second specifically about what it means to live in our conservation area, the East India Estate Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan.  Click here to download.
