Hermitage Road

Hermitage Road is in north Croydon, SE19 3QN. The proposed site is the land adjacent to Hermitage Road and Virgo Fidelis Convent School. Click here to see a map of the site area.

The current use of this site is hard-standing parking.

The proposed buildings are approximately 8 residential units, a mixture of flats and houses.

We came door knocking on Wednesday 8th June and held an event on Tuesday 26th July  to give you an opportunity to give your views and find out more about the proposed development on this site. 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.

Once you have had the opportunity to look over the proposed designs, you are welcome to leave any comments or questions you may have in our webform below.
