The Croydon Local Plan sets out how the borough can thrive and grow to meet future increasing demand. It details how many new homes the borough needs, how the infrastructure such as roads, schools and medical facilities need to change, and what jobs and employment opportunities are required to support local communities in each of the borough’s 16 places.
Last winter’s consultation saw over 8,000 people respond, helping planners to shape the plan to its proposed submission stage. Residents can make any final comments on the proposed submission. All responses will be sent to the Planning Inspectorate to be considered as part of the public examination of the Plan. The final Plan will then go before the council in the winter for approval for submission to the secretary of state. More information about the Local Plan programme can be found here.
The Local Plan documents can be viewed at www.croydon.gov.uk/localplanone and www.croydon.gov.uk/localplantwo, at all Croydon libraries and at Access Croydon in Bernard Weatherill House. Residents can have their say on the proposed submission by visiting the council’s Get Involved site at www.getinvolved.croydon.gov.uk
