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.

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.

Please let us know if you have any comments or questions (via the Contact page).
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.
The relevant documents are already available on the Council website:
It is expected that these documents will be available at all Croydon Libraries and the new Council Offices "Bernard Weatherill House".
