Homefield Road – Homefield House

Homefield Road – Homefield House, 57 Homefield Rd, Coulsdon, Surrey, CR5 1ET. The proposed site is the site occupied by Homefield House.  Click here to see an outline of the proposed site area.

Further to the community engagement event that was held on Tuesday 5th July 2016, there was a follow up engagement event held on Wednesday 14th September at the Oasis Academy Coulsdon.

This was an opportunity for residents and stakeholders to provide their feedback and find out more about the proposed development on this site. If you were not able to attend the engagement events, you can view 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.

You can also answer the listed questions (see below) and email your response to them to us at croydon@newmanfrancis.org or respond to them via our web form if you wish to provide feedback in relation to the updated consultation boards by the architects.

  • Do you agree that 21 houses rather than 31 flats are appropriate for this site?
  • Do you think that two and three storey houses are appropriate?
  • Do you like the idea of a new mews in this location?
  • What do you think of the existing trees on the site? The proposals seek to retain all healthy trees, however we are interested to hear if there are particular trees that are liked or disliked.

  • Do you think the pitch roof design on the houses is appropriate?
  • Do you think the choice of a light coloured brick for the houses is suitable?
