NOTE - From August 2017, Croydon Council will no longer erect street notices regarding a planning application. They will only erect street notices if there is no postal address beside, or behind the application site, or if it is a major planning application. Instead they will write to the immediate adjoining neighbours only and maybe to occupiers behind and in front of the application site, if the proposal affects those properties. No other occupiers/neighbours will receive a letter.

Planning Officer’s report.

This application was submitted to Croydon Council’s Planning Committee 30/11/17. Yet again a vote was made on party political lines (6 Labour – 4 Conservatives), and the decision was made to grant the application. The RRA were asked and a neighbour spoke, as an objector, who would be affected most by this flatted development and he spoke very eloquently and put forward a good case, but this held no weight with the Labour members on the Planning Committee. Purley Ward Cllr Donald Speakman spoke on behalf of Cllr Simon Brew on this application and the discussion got quite heated and political. In part this had been caused by the previous application on the agenda, for the flats development at 51 Selcroft Rd; this one is in the PWRA area, where Cllr Donald Speakman gave a passionate speech about Purley and its residents. This application for 7 flats was also approved.

However, the RRA are aware the residents are fighting back! We understand that legal opinion has been sought on the restrictive covenant that is in place on land in Riddlesdown Rd, which says on title deeds, that no flats can be built. The legal opinion given is this covenant is enforceable for 122 Riddlesdown Rd (8 flats). We understand residents will now apply for a court injunction, subject to costs for legal fees being raised by them, to try and stop this development. Watch this space! If your street is affected by these proposed flat developments, then it is worth checking your deeds to see if there are restrictive covenants in place. Much land in Riddlesdown does have them! This is also why there is no public house in Riddlesdown, or Sanderstead!

The webcast for both applications is now on line to watch (look at menu on right side). 96a Riddlesdown Rd starts at 4 hrs 21min 08 sec (Agenda item 6b) and and 51 Selcroft Rd at 3 hrs 35 min 54 sec (agenda item 6a).
