The Kenley Community Plan
Due to the shortage of housing in London and the Southeast, more homes are being built across Croydon and this increased growth is likely to continue in the future. In response to concerns about the increase in housing raised by the Kenley community, funding was secured from the Greater London Authority’s (GLA) Good Growth Fund (GGF) in early 2019 to appoint specialist consultants to engage further with the community to create a Community Plan for the area. The Kenley Community Plan (KCP) will inform the way that Kenley evolves by helping to identify priorities for investment in the short, medium and long term to support Kenley’s growing community and ensure that the increase in new homes and investment in Kenley can make a positive contribution to the neighbourhood.
Alongside the KCP and in response to community concerns about transport, parking and road safety, the council has commissioned a transport study to recommend improvements. This study will be concluded by the end of 2019.
The Kenley Community Plan will be available in draft form for public comment towards the end of 2019 and a final plan will be published early next year. Details of how to comment will be published here.

Local Plan Review
During November and December there will be a review of the Croydon Local Plan and details can be found here. Your feedback into this review is very important and is in addition to any feedback you have already given during the recent period of engagement in Kenley or that you give on the draft version of the Kenley Community Plan to be published in late autumn.
