Plans to build more than 300 homes in New Addington will be discussed this coming weekend.

Croydon Council and developer Brick by Brick (of which the council owns) will be jointly hosting a drop-in event from 10am to 4pm on Saturday, December 7 at Addington Community Centre in Central Parade about the housebuilder’s 341 proposed new homes, which include:

  • 97 homes off King Henry’s Drive
  • 55 homes in Arnhem Drive
  • 28 homes next to Headley Drive

Councillor Alison Butler, deputy leader and cabinet member for homes and Gateway services said: “This is an opportunity to help shape Brick By Brick’s plans for new homes at an early stage where local people can give feedback on what size and mix of homes they want in their area.

"Those on the housing waiting list will be able to have a real say on the proposed homes.

“If you want to see what Brick By Brick proposes and how the homes are intended for local people on the council’s waiting list, then come along on the 7th.”

A full planning application has not yet been submitted on these plans, although one is expected early next year. The council said that if permission is granted, construction work would start in late 2020.

Brick By Brick already has planning approval for 29 homes in New Addington and Fieldway that are set for completion in 2020, including 20 'affordable' rented homes in Warbank Crescent and six in Uvedale Crescent.

Colm Lacey, CEO of Brick By Brick, said: “We’re really keen to ensure local people see the benefit of development activity, and that those who cannot currently access good-quality housing have the ability to do so.

"This event allows us to meet people who are interested in living locally and properly understand their needs so that we can ensure our developments have the greatest positive impact.”
