Looking to Renovation or Extend Your Addiscombe Home

The birthplace of D H Lawrence and Kate Moss, Addiscombe lies on the outskirts of Croydon and benefits from incredibly fast travel times into central London: as little as 14 minutes to London Bridge and 16 minutes to London Victoria from East Croydon station. There's also a direct train to St Pancras, for the Eurostar, which takes half an hour.

Addiscombe has undergone extensive regeneration in the last decade, including the development of a 3.3-acre park along the former railway line, with railway artefacts found at the site on display. However, the average property here is still more than £250,000 cheaper than the London average.

Planning applications in Addiscombe

You will need to apply to Croydon Council if you need planning permission for an extension or alterations to your home, or for a new build. The fees for this are set by the government:

£206 for an extension

£462 for a new home, or a conversion of another type of building into a home (although nowadays some conversions don’t need planning permission).

The council can provide you with advice on your application before you submit it, to help ensure

it complies with its planning policies. The charges for this are:

Extensions and alterations, not including work on listed buildings or those in conservation areas: £96 for a 20-minute discussion with an email follow-up.

More complex extensions and alterations, or work in conservation areas: £240 for written advice.

New homes, or the conversion of a building into up to four flats: £1,200 for a meeting and written follow-up.

Alterations to listed buildings which don't require planning permission: £500
