The housing is laid out to make the most of the outstanding natural quality of the site. The aim has been to protect and enhance the mature trees and hedgerows, as well as the incredible views from the site. Running through the centre of the site is the Ridgeway park which provides a green link from Coulsdon Town Centre to the Village Green at the centre of the development and is part of a green network that combines recreational amenity and play with enhanced wildlife corridors. Each home within the first phase benefits from a generous private garden averaging over 100sqm.
Cane Hill Phase 1 is the first part of the Cane Hill redevelopment to be delivered, and culminates a planning process which started nearly 20 years ago when the site was formally identified for redevelopment as part of Croydon’s UDP. The site is owned by the Greater London Authority (GLA). The Green Belt land went through extensive consultation leading to the hybrid application in 2014 developed by Barratt with HTA. This gained approval for an outline application proposing 677 homes for the whole site, and a detailed application for the first 187 homes which is the subject of this submission.
