Family home to be demolished on Addington Road for flats


Demolition of two semi-detached houses and the erection of 4/5 storey building to provide 20 residential units with associated access, parking, cycle and refuse storage and landscaping

2-4 Addington Road South Croydon CR2 8RB

You may be aware of the above planning application for Addington Road. I am writing to let you know that the application is being heard by the Planning Committee on: Thursday 25 February. The meeting starts at 6.00pm.

In essence my concerns are that this scheme:

  1. The proposal for 20 new homes spread over five storeys in a large block of flats would be a significant overdevelopment of this site due to its size, height, footprint, bulk and massing and would be detrimental to the street scene
  2. The contemporary monolithic design block proposed to sit on this site is completely out of character with the traditional character design properties adjacent to the site and will be detrimental to the street-scene
  3. The proposed flat roof is out of character and detrimental to the street-scene
  4. The proposal fails to respect the local development pattern, layout and siting and completely dominates the plot; neighbouring properties are generously spaced and respect the trees and green character of the area
  5. Detrimental impact on adjoining occupiers due to overlooking and loss of privacy

If you share my concerns and haven’t commented to date then you can still do so up until the decision date via the Council’s website at
