All planning applications will be considered by the council against the Croydon Local Plan: 2018, as part of the borough's development plan. When thinking about a new proposal for development in the borough, the overall development plan should be considered. This comprises Croydon Local Plan 2018, the Mayor's London Plan and the South London Waste Plan.
The Croydon Local Plan 2018 brings together the Strategic Policies (including its partial review) and the Detailed Policies and Proposals into one planning document. It supersedes the Croydon Local Plan: Strategic Policies (2013) and replaces the Saved Policies of the Unitary Development Plan (2006). Subject to the Inspector’s recommended changes and some non-material amendments, the policies and supporting text remain as they were published when they were part of the Croydon Local Plan: Strategic Policies – Partial Review and the Croydon Local Plan: Detailed Policies and Proposals. Full details of how the two documents have been combined into the Croydon Local Plan 2018 and details of all modifications made to it can be found in the full Adoption Statement available to download below. The Inspector’s Report on the examination of the Croydon Local Plan is also available to download below. An accompanying sustainability appraisal report can be viewed on the sustainability appraisal webpage.
A person aggrieved by the Croydon Local Plan 2018 may make an application to the High Court under Section 113 of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 on the ground that:
- The Local Plan is not within the appropriate power (i.e. the Local Plan contains something that it should, in law, not contain); or
- A procedural requirement has not been complied with.
If you require further advice on making an application for Judicial Review, you should consult a solicitor or another advisor. The Council is not able to provide advice on this matter. Any application to the High Court under Section 113 of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 must be made by 10th April 2018.
