Planning application for flats on Purley Downs Road
25/03/2014 18:51:00......Posted by Tim Pollard
I have refered an application for what I consider to be a highly inappropriate development on Purley Downs Road, where a landmark house built by a noted local builder whose signature style was glazed green roof tiles is proposed to be replaced by a characterless block of flats.
Details of the application are below.
Application Number: 13/04151/P
Details of Application: Demolition of the existing dwelling; erection of two storey building with accommodation in roofspace comprising 9 two bedroom flats; formation of vehicular access and provision of associated parking
Location: 107 Purley Downs Road, South Croydon, CR2 0RH
I will hear back again to either invite me to the appropriate meeting of the Planning Committee or to inform me that at a Delegated Business meeting permission has been refused or that the application has been withdrawn/not determined.
My grounds for refering to committee include concerns about the streetscape and precedent, as well as quality of deisign and road safety.
