The proposal reflected careful Get Planning and Architecture had an extensive dialogue with Croydon council before the application was made which consequently led to the project being granted full planning first time. The client wanted to develop the site into a new built housing scheme.
The proposal reflected careful consideration following the pre-application advice received, and the proposal seeked the demolition of the existing house on site and development a high-quality and sustainable residential scheme comprising a new building incorporating 10 flats. Each flat within the proposed flat scheme did comply with national space standards in regards to overall gross internal area (GIA) and individual habitable rooms.
The high benchmark level of design quality reflects in the scheme which proposes 2 flats on the ground floor; 1 x 2 bedroom flat and 1 x 3 bedroom flat. On the first floor there is proposed 4 x 2 bedroom flats. Within the second floor is proposed 2 x 2 bedroom and 1 x 1 bedroom flats. A 2-bedroom flat is proposed within the roof space to the south west of the site. The design represents sustainable and efficient use of the site, has due regard to the characteristics of the existing and surrounding buildings, and makes an important contribution to housing provision improving the street scene to Duppas Hill by providing 10 new, good quality, self contained market flats.
I just wanted to say a big thank you to you for all the work you did on Duppas Hill Terrace, It’s a great scheme and I’m very much looking forward to building it.
