London Borough of Croydon

As identified in the council’s adopted Local Development Scheme, the Croydon Local Plan 2018 is due for a partial review.  This review is underway and due to be adopted in early 2022.

The main reasons for the partial review are:

  • the emerging new London Plan (in particular the significantly increased housing number);
  • the requirement to review Local Plans within five years of the adoption of the last local plan; and 
  • monitoring the outcome of the Croydon Local Plan 2018.

The overarching stages of the partial review are:

  • Local plan - adopted February 2018 
  • Local plan review - commences early 2019
  • Preferred and alternative options - public consultation Autumn 2019
  • Preferred option - public consultation Autumn 2020
  • Examination in public - Spring 2021
  • Adoption - early 2022

Current status of the partial review

The partial review is currently at the very early stages.
