Lion Green Car Park

Lion Green Car Park is a car park site situated at Lion Green Road, CR5 2NL which is being considered for redevelopment. Click here to see an outline of the site area.

There was a community engagement event on Wednesday 4th October 2017 from 4pm-8pm & Saturday 7th October 2017 from 10am-2pm at St Aidan’s Church, Chipstead Valley Road, CR5 3BB

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 event, you can view the architect’s proposed plans that were shown at the event and the general feedback and suggestions from the consultation below.

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

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.

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
