Planning Application submitted for 108 Purley Downs Road, Sanderstead

Our planning application for 108 Purley Downs Road, Sanderstead has today been submitted to Croydon Council.

The scheme, which comprises eight x five bedroom detached houses, is the product of extensive consultation with the local community and the Local Authority.  Further details can be found on our Case Studies page.

The siting and design of the properties has been carefully considered to create a scheme which respects its surroundings.  A great deal of time has been taken to create interest and definition is provided through a simple, but high quality palette of materials and finishes.  We firmly believe that the traditional architectural approach will be visually striking and the quality of the design will be a welcome addition to the area.

We hope to have a favourable decision by the end of the year.

Planning Permission Secured for Milton House, Croydon

Planning permission was granted by the London Borough of Croydon last week to construct 81 new homes on the former Milton House site close to the centre of Croydon.

The £21m development of one, two and three bedroom apartments and a small number of three bedroom houses, as well as 1,900 sqm of commercial floorspace, will transform the dilapidated site on Milton Road and Gloucester Road.

It has been a journey, but we are thrilled to have finally achieved planning permission for this complex project.   The removal of the derelict buildings which currently blight the area, will make way for a high quality mixed use scheme, which we truly believe will drive the ongoing regeneration of this part of Croydon.

There are many people who deserve thanks, including officers and councillors of the London Borough of Croydon and most importantly the local community itself.  Your support throughout has fundamentally helped shape and deliver the proposal.

Work on site is envisaged to start in May this year.  Updates on our progress can be found via the development’s dedicated public consultation website –
