Petition: Stop the destruction of Coulsdon's heritage
07/08/2017 12:09:00

 
 

You may have heard about the appalling planning application to demolish two historic cottages in Coulsdon and replace them with a golden monstrosity.

This application to demolish an elegant pair of semi-detached properties, the last surviving buildings associated with Cane Hill Hospital, and build a modern gold clad block of nine flats, is outrageous.

Contrary to Optivo’s statement in their submitted Design and Access report that ‘… it will rejoice resemblances of the existing surrounding context and respect the land’, their proposal is completely unsuited to this site and rides rough-shod through the special nature and character of this Coulsdon site. It would be more at home in Las Vegas!

I have therefore set up a petition for local residents to sign so that the council knows that we oppose this development. You can sign it online at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/canehillcottages. 

Please email as many of your friends and neighbours as possible so they can object too. You can also post the petition on Facebook and Twitter using this link: www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/canehillcottages

Please do also email your objections directly to the council at - development.management@croydon.gov.uk - quoting reference 17/03568/FUL and explaining why you object. The deadline for objections is 15th August. 

We should be respecting and looking after our heritage assets - not bulldozing them and replacing them with ‘playful modern takes’ on historic cottages.
