Latest news

We are working with a design team to prepare a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) to guide how Purley Way can successfully undergo transformation and become a more attractive place for local residents and businesses.

The Purley Way is identified as one of the new areas of transformation in Croydon’s Local Plan Review. It is an area that can provide both significant housing growth and the expansion of employment opportunities, supported by new infrastructure and facilities including new transport and social infrastructure, a generous and inclusive public realm with exemplary open spaces.

Complete the feedback survey and get involved with relevant engagement events. To view high resolution versions of the documents visit the Purley Wayfinders website. (The feedback survey is also available via this website)

Consultation on the Purley Way Masterplan SPD will close at midnight on 16 March 2021.

Croydon Local Plan Review 

Due to be adopted in 2022, the review will update the vision and strategy for Croydon’s growth up to 2039 and set out how the council will continue to deliver much-needed new homes, jobs and community facilities. 

The first stage of the review was to gain feedback from the community with a period of consultation referred to as the Issues and Options consultation. This took place between November 2019 and January 2020 and is now closed.

Thank you to everyone who participated in an event and/or shared feedback. All representations made during the consultation period are now being reviewed and will be used by the Spatial Plan team to shape the draft Local Plan Review.

Next steps

The draft Local Plan (regulation 19) is the next stage where a single option will be presented which was influenced by what we heard during the Issues and Options consultation, evidence and the sustainability appraisal process.   This was programed to happen in late 2020. However, due to the council’s financial situation the Local Plan has been paused and work on it will not resume until April 2021.  Consultation on the draft Local Plan review (regulation 19) will now take place before June-July 2021.

The Local Plan Review will be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate for Examination early in October 2021. It is still anticipated to be adopted in 2022 but later in that year.

For a detailed timetable please refer to the Local Development Scheme page

Further information on the status of the review will be uploaded here and the programme continues.
