Council pushed for more affordable homes before approving town centre scheme
Croydon council has approved Maccreanor Lavington’s housing scheme in the centre of the town after the developer agreed to address affordable housing concerns.
The Beamhouse Yard scheme by Regent Land & Development, will see 60 homes built in Surrey Street, ranging from one to three bedrooms. Nearly a third of the homes will now be “affordable”, allocated on a tenure-blind basis.
Croydon’s planning committee deferred the scheme in August last year in order to sort out the amount of affordable housing available.
The development will also include an arts, community and music venue, commercial units and a cafe.
A starting date for construction of the development has yet to be announced.
