Croydon Local Plan review

The review will update the vision and strategy for Croydon’s growth and set out how the council will continue to deliver much-needed new homes, jobs and community facilities.

Latest news

The revised Local Plan is progressing, but further changes were needed following the appointment in May 2022 of the Executive Mayor, Jason Perry and subsequent approval of his Business Plan (2022-2026). The updated version now takes account of the Mayor’s Business Plan and addresses concerns raised as part of the previous ‘Regulation 19’ publication process, which took place between January to February 2022.

The revised Plan was approved for publication at the Cabinet Meeting on 27 March 2024. It was then approved at the full Council meeting on 17 April 2024 and submitted to the Secretary of State for independent examination.

Representations, in accordance with Regulation 19 of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004, will soon be invited. This is planned to take place after the elections in May for a six-week period. 

Find out more on the Regulation 19 consultation page. There is currently no live consultation. 

Croydon Local Plan Partial Review 

The partial review of Croydon’s Local Plan commenced in 2019. 

The first stage of the review also known as ‘Regulation 18’ sought feedback from the community with a period of consultation referred to as the Issues and Options consultation. This took place between November 2019 to January 2020.

A second stage of the review known as ‘Regulation 19’ was undertaken between January and February 2022 to provide an opportunity for representations to be made on the amendments to the local plan before it is examined by a planning inspector. The council received over 800 responses which have been reviewed and considered in the latest version of the ‘Regulation 19’ revised Plan. 

Download a summary of the representations received in response to the Regulation 18 consultation.

Thank you to everyone who participated and shared feedback to date. All representations made will be used to shape the revised Plan.
