Plan to demolish Norbury Trading Estate
A major loss of employment buildings will occur with the plans of the new owner Goldcrest Land Ltd to demolish the units at Norbury Trading Estate on Craignish Avenue. It has submitted its demolition plan to the Council, which will spread over just twelve months.
A covering letter states: ‘The building to be demolished is a commercial building as part of a wider terrace of buildings. The building to be demolished is clearly shown on the existing floorplan and elevations drawings enclosed within this notification. The enclosed prior notification of proposed demolition simply seeks to notify LB Croydon that the building will be demolished and provides details on the proposed method of demolition and restoration. Significantly, the demolition of the building will enable the site to be redeveloped in the future’
18/00504/PAD – Unit 1; Start date 1.3.19
18/00505/PAD – Unit 2; Start date 1.3.19
18/00506/PAD – Units 3 and 4; Start date 1.9.18
18/00507/PAD – Unit 5: Start date 1.5.18
18/00508/PAD – Unit 6: Start date 1.3.19
18/00509/PAD – Unit 7: Start date 1.6.18
The documents are the same for each unit and can be seen at
Scots Estate Residents Association is considering its view on this and the proposed housing scheme that Goldcrest plan to build.
Goldcrest is a significant developer being involved in over 150 sites. The purchase of the Trading Estate has been financed by Barclays Bank.
In August 2016 the Richmond Council Planning Committee rejected one of Goldcrest’s applications which residents opposed. Goldcrest won on appeal last year. In November 2016 having purchased a former Camden Council site, Goldcrest put it on the market hoping to make £0.5m profit. In September last year Goldcrest sold its former Thames Water site in Fortescue Rd in Merton to the Clarion Housing Group which plans to build housing.
This history raises the question as to whether Goldcrest will sell the site on and not proceed with its housing scheme.
