Yet another application to demolish a family home for flats

There is an application to demolish a family home in Purley and to replace it with a 3 storey block of flats. You can read my official opposition to the application below. Please do share this so that as many people as possible are aware of the planning mess in our area.

RE: 20/06093/FUL

Demolition of house and erection of three storey building comprising nine flats, formation of vehicular access/access road and provision of associated parking and cycle storage

85 Purley Downs Road South Croydon CR2 0RJ

I am writing to lodge my objection to the above planning application. My reasons are as follows:

  1. The proposal for 9 new homes spread over 3 storeys – would be an overdevelopment of this site due to its size, height, footprint, bulk and massing and would be detrimental to the street sceneĀ and local character
  2. There would be a detrimental impact on the amenities of adjoining occupiers due to overlooking and loss of privacy
  3. Inadequate outside amenity area for occupiers
  4. Detrimental impact on the natural habitat corridor created by the adjacent railway line
  5. Concreting over of garden space and the loss of natural vegetation, trees and natural habitat
  6. Highway safety concerns in relation to safe entry/exit onto Purley Downs Road
