A consultation is underway giving local residents the chance to have their say on new proposed plans for Bromley town centre.
A 4.5 hectare development site has been outlined in the heart of Bromley, extending along the west side of the High Street from Bromley South station to the Churchill Theatre in the north.
Residents, businesses and interest groups are all being encouraged to respond to the masterplan proposals which, once finalised, are expected to guide development on the site over the next 15-20 years.
Full details of the plans are available on the council’s website at www.bromley.gov.uk/Masterplan.
Proposals include a residential area consisting of more than 1,200 new homes; a gateway transport hub at Bromley South station; improvements to the High Street and the provision of off-street servicing and basement parking in an effort to promote pedestrian friendly streets.
Councillor Peter Morgan, executive councillor for renewal, recreation and enforcement, said: “We need additional housing and other infrastructure and we naturally expect development in a town centre setting to come forwards.
“This consultation is not about the principle of development, which is already established, but rather the location, mix and amount of development that will be expected to be delivered on the site. This is about making sure that the right policy framework exists to support development over the coming generation.”
When the six week consultation ends on August 31, responses will be analysed and reported as part of the decision making process so that suggested changes can be considered. When approved, the masterplan will provide supplementary guidance to help determine planning applications on the site.
