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.
