Chipstead Village



You can examine any of these applications in detail on the planning section of the RBBC website at:

 The CRA carries out an assessment of each planning application based upon the information presented on the RBBC website and the planning rules in force at the time.  If additional clarification is required, we will contact the RBBC planning officer concerned and/or our local councillor. It is not possible for the CRA to proactively contact individual residents who may be affected by a planning application, so if you have a strong objection or have additional information, please contact the CRA at:

20/00666/HHOLD – Court Mead Coulsdon Lane – Retrospective application for retention of front wall and entrance gates.  Revised plans.

The previous retrospective planning application was refused as the wall and gates were considered to be an inappropriate form of development with a harmful impact on the openness of the Green Belt in this location.  The current application has proposed lowering the height of the wall and planting a laurel hedge in front of the wall, along the roadside. The existing gates and the gate piers remain and stay their current height of 2.10m.  These changes do not appear to remedy the design and appearance issues that lead to the previous refusal.  The gates and their supporting piers should be reduced in height to match the reduced height of the wall, if the development is to be considered appropriate for the area.  There is uncertainty on the sustainability of any planting that is made in front of the wall at the road edge and the advice of the Tree and Landscape Officer is required on the suitability and sustainability of the laurel hedging in this location.

20/00738/HHOLD – 1 Hollymead Road Chipstead – Erection of one pair of automated vehicle access gates with brick piers and flank walls. Erection of one personnel gate.

No objections submitted.

20/00702/HHOLD – 9 Lackford Road Chipstead – Two storey rear extension.  Amended plans 22 May.

The proposed extension, given its size and siting, could result in an unacceptable loss of privacy, creating an adverse impact on the amenities enjoyed by the occupier of the adjacent dwelling house.

20/00606/F – 26 Chipstead Station Parade Chipstead – Create 2 storey rear extension to provide conversion of existing basement into 2-bedroom flat, extension of existing office and existing kitchen to flat.

Renewal of extant permission 16/02887/F and 17/00918/S73 – no comments submitted.

20/00741/HHOLD – Marksland High Road Chipstead – Single storey ground floor extension.

No objections.

20/00625/HHOLD – The Reading Room High Road Chipstead – Demolition of conservatory and creation of 3m extension.  Amended plans.

Objections submitted.    As a locally listed building the amended design must be sympathetic to the main building.  The proposed extension, in its scale and design, is out of keeping with the character of the existing dwelling and would have an adverse impact upon visual amenity.  The application was withdrawn this week.

20/00927/HHOLD – Longshaw Lodge Chipstead – Demolition of existing garden shed and construction of new summerhouse outbuilding in garden to side/front of property.

Following a review by Planning Enforcement on building work that had been commenced, this application has been submitted.  There needs to be a clear plan of where the proposed structure will be located and exactly what it will be.  As a Conservation Area, any development has to be in line with the approved criteria.  Clarification is required of what accommodation and facilities are to be included within the proposed structure.

20/00544/HHOLD - Coombe Down Hogscross Lane Chipstead - Demolition of existing conservatory and erection of single storey Orangery style conservatory. As amended on 15/05/2020
