Planning News – Focused Intensification Area Removed from Shirley

We have received correspondence from Sarah Jones MP (Croydon Central) which confirms that Shirley will NO LONGER be categorised as a ‘focused intensification area’.

Croydon Council’s Planning Update states:

‘It looks increasingly unlikely that significant improvements to public transport capacity in the area will be delivered over the period covered by the local plan and hence the area only has capacity for limited future growth.’

This has huge implications for Shirley, vindicating all we have been stating since the New Local Plan was adopted in 2018.
