APPROVED APPLICATION IN SOUTH CROYDON – SUPPORTED BY KRONEN’S TRANSPORT TECHNICAL NOTE

KRONEN have supported proposals that were recently approved by Croydon Council Planning Sub-Committee. The proposals sought a new house at land at Kendall Avenue / Victoria Avenue near Purley Oaks Station. The proposals included an access and parking space next to the site boundary; given the access arrangements robust justification was needed with regards to vehicle-to-pedestrian sightlines (a matter of concern to Croydon Council officers across all sites / proposals). Knowing technical guidance on these matters dating back 30 years to “Design Bulletin 32, 2nd Ed” (DoE / DoT, 1992), the technical argument ultimately centred on recent revisions to “National Planning Policy Framework” (MHCLG, 2021) with new Footnote 46 which was included specifically to reinforce good / best practice from “Manual for Streets” (DCLG / DfT, 2007) and give Manual for Streets a greater planning weight for planning decisions and … Continue reading
