Localism Act - Impact within Greater London, Croydon and Addiscombe

18Oct16 - Croydon Local Plan: Strategic Policies - Partial Review (Proposed Submission)

The proposed submission Local Plan documents are the final version of the Local Plan that the Council consider is ready to submit for Examination in Public by an independent Planning Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State. Before the Local Plan can be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate for Examination in Public, the Local Plan documents, Policies Map and supporting documents must be published by the local planning authority for representations and approved by Council later this year for submission to the Secretary of State. This provides a formal opportunity for the local community and other interested parties to consider the Proposed Submission Local Plan and make any representations. Representations submitted will be considered by the independent Planning Inspector at the Examinations in Public.

The Croydon Local Plan: Strategic Policies was adopted in April 2013 and sets a vision and framework for the planning of the borough up to 2031. A partial review of the Strategic Policies has been undertaken to ensure the borough has an up to date development plan to 2036.

Alongside the partial review of the Strategic Policies, preparation of the second part of the Local Plan, the detailed policies and proposals is taking place and will provide the development management planning policies and site allocations for the growth outlined in the partial review of the Strategic Policies.

All the consultation documents are available for inspection at the borough's libraries, at Bernard Weatherill House (Access Croydon), Mint Walk, Croydon. 9.00am-4.00pm (Monday to Friday) or by downloading from the Council's website:
www.croydon.gov.uk/localplanoneand www.croydon.gov.uk/localplantwo
Alternative formats of the document are available on request at ldf@croydon.gov.uk or 020 8726 6000 or 020 8407 1385

35 These buildings have few or no blank facades. At ground floor the buildings contain uses that frame the street or space and active upper floors with little or no obscure or frosted glazing. Active frontages encourage visual and/or physical interaction between the private uses inside and the public uses outside. Visual interaction is achieved by creating views or glimpses through windows, projecting bays, balconies and doors into or out of a building. Physical interaction encourages people to come into a building or has indoor uses that spill out onto the street.
36 Grain also called urban grain. It describes the pattern of the arrangement and size of buildings within a settlement and the degree by which an area's pattern of streets-blocks and junctions are respectively small and frequent (fine grain) or large and infrequent (course grain).

De-designation of Metropolitan Open Land that does not meet the criteria for designation
A review of Metropolitan Open Land has identified that the area set out in the map below does not meet the criteria for designation as Metropolitan Open Land and so it is proposed for de-designation. Much of the area will either be re-designated as Local Green Space or consists of statutorily protected allotments.

Addiscombe Map

The Group of local Residents' Associations have been asked to comment (and agree) Croydon Council's proposals for detailed planning policies. Similar exercises are taking place across the borough which has been split into 16 "Places".
There is a brief introduction at the foot of this page.

Residents, Business and local organisations are invited to comment during a six week period starting 25th October 2013. ASPRA are participating however there may be some concerns about the mechanism adopted by the council to limit the number of representatives who will provide feedback to Council Officers.

Planning is critical to ensuring that Croydon meets the needs of its residents, business community and visitors. The Croydon Local Plan sets out the strategy, sites and planning policies necessary to meet these needs in the short term and over the next 20 years. No area in Croydon has set up a Neighbourhood Forum and the Council are suggesting that local residents would find that route complicated, expensive and very time consuming. Neighbourhood Plans have been generated in both Woldingham and CR3 (Caterham/Chaldon/Whyteleafe) which are under Tandridge District Council.
See: Tandridge Neigbourhood Planning

The Localism Act has generated this very large piece of National planning laid out in the Neighbourhood Planning Regulations 2012.     See: Neighbourhood Planning Regulations 2012

The London-wide plan has been published and this impacts on Croydon's plans:
See: The London Plan

The Croydon Strategic Policies were adopted on 23 April 2013.
The South London Waste Plan was adopted in 2012.
The Croydon Local Plan - Detailed Policies and Proposals (CLPDPP) will be open for public consultation from
25th October to 6th December 2013      See: www.croydon.gov.uk/localplantwo     Download the Representation Form

More information is available on the council website: Neighbourhood Planning        Croydon's Local Plan
Council Report        Croydon Opportunity Area Planning Framework        Detailed Policies

The CLPDPP will assist the regeneration of the borough through the setting of firm planning framework that will provide certainty to the community and developers. It will also enable the compulsory purchasing of sites needed to bring forward new development in Croydon. It will then be subject to independent examination by a Planning Inspector. A further round of consultation is scheduled for summer 2014. During 2015 work will continue towards an independent examination before final adoption by the council in summer 2016.
