One 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 community.

Planning 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.

These are the Planning Applications submitted in the OCRA area in the last two months copied from the Croydon Council Public Access Planning Register. Click on the link for the individual application to see more details.

Gabions are best thought of as large, wire baskets that are filled with a local stone or other cheap aggregate, including reclaimed and recycled materials, and then linked together to form terracing, retain river banks, support earth banks and limitless other uses in the civil engineering field.
