Croydon Council have now put information and documentation about the Ashburton Playing Fields development on the projects dedicated webpage:
There is a Q&A document to address some of the question already put to them. It also provides a form that anyone can use to feedback on the proposals. They will be updating the site regularly as the schemes progress.
Features of the proposal:
- 2x Floodlit artificial Football pitches.
- New Children’s play and landscaping.
- Improved foot and cycle paths across the playing fields.
- New community pavilion (including cafe, terrace, small fitness gym, changing rooms and community spaces).
- Dedicated car parking.
Dates in August are being finalised for when they will exhibit the proposals and provide an opportunity for residents to drop in and discuss the plans. We will confirm once they have those dates established. They are also working towards presenting the scheme to planning committee on August 16th 2018 as part of their Pre-App programme. We understand they are aiming to submit planning application for September 2018.
All residents will still have the opportunity to object or comment during a consultation period when a Planning Application is presented and validated by Development Management.
Please do share and inform neighbours/friends of this information so they have the opportunity to feedback.
