of OCRA's roles is to monitor and examine planning
applications in our area. OCRA vets planning applications and
comments where necessary to help ensure that developments and
extensions are in keeping with the character of Old Coulsdon.
We are able to input our opinion on behalf of local residents
about the suitability of developments. In general we are aware
of the need for more affordable housing in our area but we do
not want to see over-development of back gardens by developers
with little consideration of the impact on the local
can be complex but OCRA can help you. For an informal chat
about a planning problem, you can contact our Planning
Officer. Don't forget to give your name, address and phone
number and the Planning Application that is being referred to.
