Croydon Council has bought a car park, on which it intends to build some new homes.

A planning application is due to be submitted for the site on Station Road, outside Norwood Junction station, in the coming months.

With the number of homes yet to be finalised, the scheme includes plans to develop apartments as part of the council’s new build programme.

The application will be for a mixed use scheme, which includes a commercial space on the ground floor.

Councillor Alison Butler, cabinet member for homes and regeneration, said: “Croydon like many other London boroughs is experiencing a severe shortage of housing.

“Subject to planning permission, this site will enable us to provide much needed council housing for families in need.

“Building new homes is a key part of our plans to regenerate Croydon, with some 9,500 forecast for the next five years.

“South Norwood is one of our major district centres, and this development will help towards its much needed revitalisation.”
