Building Planning Permission Received
As of 9 July 2020 the Secretary of State has granted his approval for our development to go ahead.
Purley Baptist Church are delighted that the Secretary of State has given our building project the go-ahead. We believe that this was the right decision in light of the evidence presented at the second public inquiry in December 2019. Of course, we are only too aware that many local residents have concerns about our scheme (and principally the height of the proposed tower). We are of course mindful of this but trust that once the development is complete its many benefits including its excellent design, the facilities for the use of local community groups and much needed affordable housing will come to be warmly appreciated. Furthermore, we look forward to the renewal that this will bring to Purley District Centre.
The church family is grateful to all who have assisted us up to this point, particularly our partners, Thornsett. We look forward to engaging with individuals or community groups who’d like to know more about the project and how the facilities might be used to the best advantage of the people of Purley.
