NewmanFrancis held a community engagement event on Wednesday 19th October 2016, where architects and Brick by Brick were present to speak with local residents & stakeholders about the development proposals. If you were not able to attend, you can see the architect’s proposed plans that were shown at the event and the general feedback and suggestions from the consultation below.

Following the above events, feedback from residents will be used to inform the proposed development.

If this proposal goes forward it will require Brick by Brick to submit a formal planning application requesting planning consent from the Council’s Planning Department. The Council will publicise planning applications by displaying Site Notices on street furniture (on lamp posts) on roads close to the proposed site. The notice will provide information on how you can submit further comments on the proposed development (see link to the Council’s Planning Department for more information https://www.croydon.gov.uk/sites/default/files/articles/downloads/howtocommentnote42012.pdf )
