Planning news

The monthly list of planning applications in our area, as worked on by SPRA’s planning sub-committee, includes

Planning applications are reviewed as they arise from Croydon Local Planning Authority.  SPRA planning sub-committee will highlight to SPRA Executive Committee any proposals that are deemed detrimental to our neighbourhood.  In advance of going to print for SPAN magazine, residents can access the most up to date planning information from the sub-committee on the SPRA web site link

The Council guidelines state that you have until the consultation deadline to make a comment (object, support or be neutral) and if you do not comment within that period the Council will assume that you do not wish to comment.  However, even if the publicity period has expired (a notice posted at or near the site or letters sent  to adjacent occupiers; details on the Planning website or for certain projects an entry in the local Guardian newspaper) it may not be too late to comment.  You must comment in writing and you can do this by letter, email or via the website, see the links below.  In all cases quote the property address and if possible the planning reference number.  The ‘Validated’ date is the date that the Council has checked that the initial application has been submitted in the correct manner, however, be aware that applications are sometimes withdrawn by the applicant between submission of our data to the printers and the Council’s decision deadline.  It is worth always checking the Planning website or phoning the Council for the most up to date status of the application you may be interested in.
