Out of the blue comes the agenda for 8th July 2010 Croydon Council Strategic Planning Committee on whose agenda is a pre-application submission by Menta for its Cherry Orchard Road Planning Application.

The justification for this is stated in 1.1 of the committee report:

This proposed development is being reported to committee to enable members of the committee  to  view  it  at  an  early  stage  and  to  comment  upon  it.  The  development does not constitute an application for planning permission and any comments made upon it are provisional and subject to full consideration of any subsequent application and the comments received as a result of consultation, publicity and notification.

Detail fo the application are as follows:

Ref:  10/01984/PRE
Location: Site of Porter and Sorter ph, Billinton Hill, Cherry Orchard Mansions, Cherry Orchard Road and 15-17 Cherry Orchard Road, Croydon
Ward:  Addiscombe
Description:    Demolition of Amy Johnson House (offices), Porter and Sorter (public  house) and Cherry Orchard Mansions (vacant residential) and redevelopment to provide:

•         460- 490 flats (Approximately 100 units to be affordable split 70/30 social rent and intermediate)
•         Hotel
•         Retail
•         Community facilities
•         Car Parking – 210 (approx)

Drawing Nos:  Pre Application submission dated 14 th  June 2010
Applicant:       Menta
Agent:  G L Hearne
Case Officer:  Simon Albrecht/Nicola Townsend

Menta has submitted its pre-application even though the East Croydon Masterplan is not going to Croydon Cabinet until 12th July 2010 and doesn’t start its own round of  “Residents Consultations” the following week on 15th and 17th July 2010. It looks like Menta already has a view what it wants for the site.
