GLA approves Oakwood’s Bensham Lane scheme

The Greater London Authority has approved plans for a 60-home development on Bensham Lane.

The scheme, developed by Oakwood, will see the existing warehouse demolished and replaced with an 11-storey building.

Flexible commercial floorspace on the ground floor will also be created as part of the development, called Morris House.

Oakwood is now working through the Section 106 agreement with Croydon Council, which is expected to be finalised in the next few weeks. Once complete, formal permission will be issued.
