Regina Road

Regina Road is in North Croydon, SE25 4TR. The proposed site is the land behind 89 – 175 Regina Road. Click here to see an outline of the site area.

The current use of this site is hardstanding land and garages.

The proposed buildings are approximately 3 blocks of 15-24 residential units, a mixture of houses and flats.

We held a design information workshop on Wednesday 15th June which was well attended and from which a great deal of useful feedback was gathered.

If you were not able to attend the event on 15th June, 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.

Public Consultation Boards

Consultation Feedback

Key Points Raised

  • The proposed development area is currently well used – for example, for a secure area for children to play and to use the drying area
  • Residents described the area as a tight community, host regular street parties.
  • Residents feel the space is a safe and secure area for children rather than the green space opposite Regina Road. Although residents still feel crime is an issue in the area.
  • Reported that previous Anti-Social behavior has reduced over time as young families have grown up.
  • In the current drying area there is a wall that keeps getting knocked down by cars – although this was not noted as a particularly safety concern by residents.
  • Current drainage problems will become worse with increase of properties.

Key Concerns Raised

  • Residents feel additional homes will bring further crime
  • The proposed through route was strongly opposed as residents felt this will compromise the safety of children.
  • The new pathways/entrances were strongly opposed by one resident on Regina Road as it would create congestion and possibly lower her house price.
  • Residents felt there were too many homes for the size of the area.
  • Most, if not all residents were extremely worried about density, overlooking and the blocking of light.
  • The proposed new local park on site was seen as unnecessary.
  • Lots of worries about the impact of developing the new homes in terms of site access, delivery and transport issues.

Suggestions 

  • What security will there be during construction?
  • Residents worried about the creation of transient neighbourhood, where new tenants have no concern or care for the environment around them
  • Residents concerned that if it is social housing/affordable it will contribute to the deprivation of the area.
  • Parking came over as one of the biggest issues (Regina Rd is a current problem as refuse vehicles can’t turn, people come in and use private spaces to park, and there has been a big impact after Council Parking service was reduced. Between blocks 89 – 99 parking was described as “a nightmare”)
  • If there is a walkway between Bradshaw Close and Regina there would need to be a security gate.
  • Two residents wanted to know if the silver birch trees will be preserved
  • Where will rubbish be stored? And how will refuse vehicles get into the area.
  • Request for a Council Parking representative to attend the next meeting.
  • How will new properties be facing our homes? Where will the windows be?
  • Resident would like more detail on Traffic and Construction Management Plans
  • Residents wanted to see the feedback collected by NewmanFrancis at the event
