Purley Way consultation

Consultation on the Purley Way Masterplan SPD ran until 16 March 2021.  Responses are now being analysed and will be used to produce the final version of the document. This will inform and feed into the review of the Croydon Local Plan.

Croydon Local Plan Review 

Due to be adopted in 2023, 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. Consultation on the draft Local Plan review (regulation 19) will now take place in January 2022.

The Local Plan Review will be submitted to the Planning Inspectorate for Examination in March 2022. It is still anticipated to be adopted later in 2022.

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