Tollers Lane Estate

Tollers Lane Estate is in south Croydon, CR5 1DW. At the moment there is no exact proposed site for building, because Brick by Brick will be undertaking a wider study to identify areas within the estate where new homes could be built. This will not involve pulling down any existing properties.

Following on from the recent design information event on Thursday 30th June, we held another event on Friday 22nd 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.

Consultation Feedback

Key Points/Concerns Raised – 30th June 2016

Infrastructure

  • There is already significant pressure on the local infrastructure, particularly:
    • Local Schools
    • Local GPs
    • Drainage / sewage (residents wanted reassurance that this would be addressed)

Alternative sites

  • Residents queried whether the council had considered Homefield (it has) and asked why there were currently no proposals to develop at Stoats Nest Village where there is a large area of open space with good transport connections

Games Court

  • Locating it on the edge of the estate is of concern – parents will not be able to supervise and therefore it will be unsafe for their children.

Parking

  • A major issue for residents.
  • The area is poorly served by public transport.
  • Plans for a bus service for the estate did not materialize and this is still much needed.
  • There is already considerable parking stress and the proposals will make this worse.
  • One resident felt that between 100 – 150 additional parking spaces were necessary to accommodate the existing and proposed new residents
  • One person with a medical condition said that it was already very difficult to park near their property

Emergency services

  • It was felt that emergency access had not been taken into account.

Environmental impact

  • Concerns raised about the environmental impacts

Lighting

  • Poor and needs upgrading.
  • Concerns that the new properties will block the light

Suggestions

  • Underground parking
  • Red lines at the passing spaces to prevent cars parking there
  • One person requested parking bays at Site 2
  • More spaces for young people of all ages to play safely
  • 2 double bedroom properties for people with disabilities / elderly
  • 3 bedroom properties
