Lidl appeal against Croydon planning refusal

In February 2015 Croydon council refused a planning application from Lidl to replace the former car showroom at the corner of Beulah Hill and Crown Lane. Croydon said Lidl’s plans were “ detrimental to the visual amenities of the streetscene, by reason of its unacceptable scale, appearance, siting, massing & overall design and insufficient landscaping & boundary treatment”

Lidl has now appealed against Croydon’s decision. You can comment on the appeal before Thursday 26th November by quoting ref 3087239 at the Planning appeal portal: http://www.planningportal.gov.uk/planning/appeals/online/search

Details of Lidl’s plans can be seen by quoting ref 14/04434/P at http://publicaccess.croydon.gov.uk/online-applications .

Lidl gets thumbs down

Lidl applied to Croydon council for planning permission to turn the former car show room on Beulah Hill into a Lidl store. But the application was turned down  on 6th February . Croydon wanted the building to be smaller and fit in better with the Norwood Grove Conservation Area.  There are other concerns  about the lack of detail on managing traffic using the car park entrance on Crown Lane.

Lidl may appeal agains the Croydon decision  or re-apply with new plans. For details of the scheme quote ref  13/03146/P at http://planning.croydon.gov.uk/DCWebPages/AcolNetCGI.gov?ACTION=UNWRAP&RIPNAME=Root.PgeResultDetail&TheSystemkey=137755
