Following a lengthy pre-app negotiation with the planners at LB Croydon, we have recently submitted proposals for a new 3 unit scheme in Purley Croydon. The site, a suburban area of the borough – makes use of the council’s new policies of encouraging densification of suburban areas, to provide new homes to meet the borough’s housing needs. The mix of units is a three bed flat at basement level, which will be fully wheelchair accessible, a one-bed flat at ground floor level, and a one bed flat at first floor.
The form of the block is conceived as a 2-storey building and a 3rd storey in the roof space. The lower floor opens up onto a lower garden, exploiting the levels of the site. The facades will be finished in a ceramic red tile and a light grey brick podium base. All areas of the flats and amenity space will comply with the London Space standards.
A high quality landscaping scheme, cycle storage and bins will also be carefully considered to provide the best outcome for the future residents.
