Approved Residential Application and Parking Survey in Purley

Last week Croydon Council approved a planning application for alterations and extensions to a 3-bedroom detached bungalow to create 5 × apartments; the scheme retains the existing vehicle access and 1 × garage parking space.

KRONEN were working alongside Barnes Design (architects and agents).

The application was supported by KRONEN’s Parking Survey report carried out in accordance with the “Lambeth Methodology” (‘Lambeth Council Parking Survey Guidance Note‘ (Lambeth Council, 2012)).

Croydon Council’s planning reference for the approval was “20/01691/FUL” for the “Demolition of the existing roof, and erection of a first floor extension with hipped roof over to create a two-storey building, associated alterations for the conversion of dwelling to provide 5 units with associated landscaping, refuse and cycle storage” at Windsor Lodge, Purley Rise, Purley, CR8 3AW.

Croydon Council’s Officer’s Report noted the importance of the Parking Survey in the officers’ impact assessment of the proposals:

“As the site is located within a sustainable location which provides a good level of public transport accessibility, the applicant was requested to submit a car parking stress survey to demonstrate that the existing street is capable of accommodating any overspill car parking as a result of the proposed development. The conclusions of the survey were that there is currently a low parking stress of 18% on the street and that there will be a likely increase to 23% as a result of the proposed development.

The council’s highways officer has reviewed the car parking stress survey and it is considered that the overspill car as a result of the proposed development will have a minimal impact on the existing street parking stress.”
