A little bit of history

“A big WELCOME and enjoy”

The history of Caterham begins with an Anglo-Saxon settlement in the area known today as Caterhamon-the-Hill. The town expanded into what is now the Caterham Valley in the Victorian era following the arrival of the railway in 1856 along with the opening of the Railway Hotel beginning the development of the Valley. The oldest house in Caterham on the Hill, dated 1495, is located on the High Street along with a 250 year-old cedar tree, which due to superstition, some of the local residents still pass by silently. The well-known Caterham School relocated to Caterham from Lewisham in 1884.

Today, Caterham is a popular commuter town with easy access to central London.

The property market in Caterham offers something for everyone whether renting or buying, spanning contemporary apartments in the centre of town to large, detached houses in Caterham-on-the-Hill. Family homes are the order of the day in both the Caterham valley and Caterham-on-the-Hill, although this area is the earlier of the two and therefore has a higher proportion of period properties. The oldest house in Caterham-on-the Hill is located on the high street and dates back to 1495, giving a sense of the town’s long history and heritage.


Why move to Caterham?

There are many amenities in the town itself, as well as strong transport links with neighbouring towns and ample opportunity to escape the town completely to explore the surrounding countryside on foot or by bike.

There are a good range of day to day amenities on offer in Caterham. High street shopping can be found in the Caterham Valley, where the Church Walk centre includes

such essentials as Boots pharmacy and Specsavers opticians. There is also a choice of supermarkets, including Tesco, Waitrose and Morrisons.

Caterham has a great sporting tradition and is currently home to two youth football teams, a rugby club, and a cricket club.

Dining out in Caterham encompasses a range of independent eateries and world cuisines, including

Casa Lola Tapas Bar, Bua Thai and Pizza Express. Numerous cosy pubs offering hearty Sunday roasts in family-friendly surroundings, including The Harrow and The William Garland, while there are plenty of cafes to choose from for light bites and hot drinks. The Miller Centre is an excellent venue for local theatre and there is an Everyman cinema a short drive away in neighbouring Oxted.

Ideal living

Caterham boasts ample green space for outdoor pursuits, including the Surrey National and Coulsdon Manor golf courses. The Farthing Downs and Happy Valley Site of Special Scientific Interest to the north of the town was designated in 1975 due to its chalk grassland, while Coulsdon Common offers walks though ancient woodland. Passing just south of Caterham, the North Downs Way is a must for seasoned hikers, taking in the gorgeous countryside from the Surrey Hills to the Kent coast.

There are a good range of schools in Caterham in both the private and state sector, serving all age groups. These include the De Stafford School, Audley Primary, Hillcroft Primary, St Francis Catholic Primary and Essendene, as well as the highly regarded, independently run Caterham School and Oakhurst Grange.

Caterham has fantastic transport links with the M25 and wider motorway network easily accessible at junction 6. The

mainline train station is situated in Zone 6 and provides direct services to London Bridge/Victoria in around 55 minutes.

Pizza Express

Our love affair with Italian food is longterm. In 1965, a wise man called Peter Boizot knew pizza in London could be better. So he shipped over an authentic oven from Italy, opened the first-ever PizzaExpress and got to work serving the great pizza the UK deserved.

Kokoro Caterham

KOKORO is a Korean Japanese restaurant, founded by Rak-Kyu Park in the UK more than a decade ago. From small beginnings, the restaurant took flight as people began to fall in love with our food. Now, years later, we have stores across the country and customers flock to eat our hearty soups and scrumptious sushi. Our focus on quality service, supported by the use of fresh ingredients and environmentally conscious packaging ensures we meet the needs of the modern customer.

The Kerala Kerala cuisine is a mouth-watering story. Proximity to the richness of Arabian sea and an abundance of exotic spices together with a sharp appetite and a strong craving for ultimate taste brought about an exotic cuisine that makes your mouth an ocean. Here, in The Kerala, we earnestly try to reproduce the same village cuisine which is almost alien to your tongue and we are confident that our Kerala born and bred chefs, who started learning the preliminary knowledge of cooking from their own home kitchens, can elevate you to a different world with these Nectar and Ambrosia.

Planning & Building Control

Unsure which services you need?

If you are thinking of making changes to your property, you may need to apply for planning permission and / or Building Regulations approval. If you’re not sure which applications to make, please use the guidance below to help you to decide what you need to do.

Please note that many developments will require both.

What is planning?

Planning is the process of deciding whether a proposed development should go ahead or not. It uses national and local policies to consider the development in its context and may look at the impact of the work on neighbours and the wider community, existing architecture, the land, the layout, and existing or proposed infrastructure (such as drains, transport and schools).

You will probably need planning permission if your proposed development will do any of the following:

• create a new building, or change the use or appearance of an existing building

• affect the sunlight, privacy or outlook for neighbouring properties

• affect the nearby area with noise disturbance, smell or fumes

• work on or around listed buildings or any conservation areas

• affect traffic volumes, road safety or access

• change the density of development in an area

• use significantly different materials or finishes from nearby properties

• have an effect on existing trees

What is building control?

Building control applies national statutory regulations to ensure the structural quality of any building work, in areas such as safety, public health, accessibility, and the materials used. Most substantial building projects (such as an extension, knocking down walls or converting a garage or loft) will need Building Regulations approval.
