Addington Conservation Area Review Consultation

Why are we doing this?

Croydon Council is consulting on proposals following a review of Addington Village Conservation Area. 

The review of the conservation area has identified boundary amendments that would better reflect the area’s special architectural and historic interest.  Following this review, the council is proposing to adopt:

  • A new Conservation Area Appraisal and Management Plan (CAAMP).
  • Changes to the conservation area boundary to include Addington Palace and Parkland (including Roxton Gardens), and to remove areas of modern development that do not relate to the historic development of the area.  The name is proposed to be changed from Addington Village Conservation Area to Addington Conservation Area to reflect inclusion of the Palace and Parkland.
  • Inclusion of the former stables (Addington Palace Golf Clubhouse) and Stable Lodge on the council’s Local List of Buildings of Architectural or Historic Significance.

The CAAMP will be adopted as an SPD (as defined by the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 (as amended) and the Town and Country Planning (Local Planning) (England) Regulations 2012) to give it weight as a material planning consideration when determining planning applications. Once adopted, Addington CAAMP will supersede the existing Conservation Area Statement which was issued in 1996. The statement is outdated and did not provide sufficient information regarding the historical development of Addington or the significance of the conservation area. This Appraisal and Management Plan will address this.

Full details are available at https://www.croydon.gov.uk/planningandregeneration/framework/conservation

Formal consultation on these proposals will take place between Thursday 18 April – Thursday 30 May 2019. A public consultation event will be held at Addington Church Hall,  Addington Village Road, Croydon, CR0 5AS on Thursday 9 May 2019 between 16:00 and 20:00. During this event, there will be further information and council officers on hand to answer questions. A public meeting will start at 18:30.

The consultation display will also be available to view at Croydon Clocktower between 11 and 18 May.

What difference has it made?

A review of Addington Village conservation area has been undertaken as part of a wider review of all conservation areas in the borough.  Public consultation was undertaken on draft proposals in spring 2019.  The proposals have been revised following consultation. These proposals were adopted on 27 January 2020 with the following outcomes:  

  • Conservation area name change: The name of the conservation area has been retained as Addington Village.
  • Boundary inclusions: Addington Palace, the former Stables, Stable Lodge, South Lodge, historic parkland between the Palace and village (now golf course and public park) and Roxton Gardens are now included within the conservation area.
  • Boundary exclusions: Numbers 63-73 (odd) and 52-54 (even) Boundary Way have been removed from the conservation area.  
  • Local list inclusions: The former Stables (Addington Palace Golf Clubhouse) and Stable Lodge are now included on the Council's local list of historic buildings.
  • Conservation area appraisal and management plan supplementary planning document: This guidance document has now been approved.  It identifies the special interest of the conservation area and provides guidance on its future management.  

A map of the revised boundary, a summary of the consultation, adoption statement and a copy of the conservation area appraisal and management plan can be downloaded from the council's conservation area webpages: https://www.croydon.gov.uk/planningandregeneration/framework/conservation/conservation-areas.  Further information on the conservation area implications of conservation area designation is available in the Addington Village conservation area appraisal and management plan and the council’s adopted conservation area general guidance, both of which can be downloaded via the above link.

The revised boundary, local list inclusions and up-to-date guidance will enable the special character and appearance of Addington Village Conservation Area to be better understood and managed.
