Ravensdale Gardens and Rushden Close Estate

Ravensdale Gardens and Rushden Close Estate are in north Croydon, SE19 3QD and SE19 3QB.

We held an event on Thursday 30th June and 18th August 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.

Following the above event, feedback from residents will be used to inform the proposed development. The proposal will be available on our website and you will have a further opportunity to comment on the final plans below on our webform.

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 ).
