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 appeals for exactly these types of design issues (as opposed to contrary local guidance etc.).

This and other matters were also assessed in KRONEN’s Transport Technical Note.

KRONEN were working alongside Union Architecture and Robin Escott Planning for Lumiere Property.

Croydon Council planning application ref was “21/04462/FUL” for the “Erection of a two bedroom dwelling with associated works” at Land to the Rear of 67 Kendall Avenue South, South Croydon, CR2 0QR.
