Exhibition for Langley Court proposals

Thu 29 September 2011, 3:12 pm

Developers behind the regeneration of Langley Court, the former GlaxoSmithKline site in Beckenham, are holding an exhibition to showcase their proposals.

Developer Altessen, a joint venture between Altyon and Essential Land, conceived the idea following a community planning exercise in May.

The exhibition means local people are being given a further opportunity to comment before the planning application is submitted. 

Martin Bellinger, Partner at Essential Land said, “It has been great to work so closely with the local community through a unique combination of community planning initiatives and online discussion.  Most importantly, the resulting scheme is creative, inspired and reflects the requirements of local people.  

“I’m looking forward to seeing people’s reactions on Saturday.”

He said the masterplan would be adapted as necessary and the planning application is expected to be submitted in early 2012. 

If planning permission is granted the developers hope to start work on site during 2012, with the final scheme being delivered in 2015. 

The 10.8ha former GlaxoSmithKline Research & Development facility, off South Eden Park Road, was purchased by Altessen and investor clients of investment advisor Delancey in December 2010.

Altessen wants to create a mixture of residential, leisure, community and employment uses across the site, whilst preserving and enhancing existing trees, greenery and water features.

The exhibition will take place at The Pavilion at Langley Court, Beckenham BR3 3BS, from 10am to 4pm on Saturday 1 October.
