Planning Update – Croydon Local Plan Review

Croydon is reviewing its 2018 Local Plan to tackle the climate emergency and address the housing crisis.

The suggestions given in the consultation documents have the capacity to greatly affect the Shirley area with the potential of a new tramline extension along Wickham Road and up to 50 additional 9-unit flats being developed, and we highly recommend taking a look at the documents below:

Due to be adopted in 2022, the review will update the vision and strategy for Croydon’s growth up to 2039 and set out how the council will continue to deliver much-needed new homes, jobs and community facilities.

You can comment on the proposals online. The consultation is split into three sections:

  • Strategic options
  • Themes
  • Places

The Issues and Options consultation, which is based around three spatial strategies, sites and planning policies necessary to meet these needs will run from 8 November 2019 until 13 January 2020.
