To ensure that new developments do not have a detrimental effect on people and the environment, the pollution team provides advice on the environmental impact of planning applications. During this assessment issues such as noise, air pollution, odour and contaminated land are taken into account.

Our pollution policies are contained in the Croydon's local plan: strategic policies 2013.

You can view the report via our Croydon's local plan: strategic policies (CLP1) web page and during normal opening hours at the following locations:

  • Council Offices: Access Croydon, Bernard Weatherill House, 8 Mint Walk,Croydon, CR0 1EA
  • At the your local library. Information on opening times are available on the Libraries opening hours web page.

Below are guidelines for certain types of proposals, which aim to minimise the environmental impact of developments.
