Development plans approved for former college

Thu 27 December 2012, 9:38 am

Bromley Council has approved plans for the construction of 33 new homes as part of the redevelopment of the former Holy Trinity College.

Bellway Homes’ proposals for the site, in Plaistow Lane, will see the retention of the principal Grade II listed buildings at the former convent and school, but the extension or demolition of newer parts of the campus.

Some  22 new flats and 11 large houses will be built on the site, with “up to 23” new apartments created through the conversion and extension of the retained listed buildings.

Planning officers said that an existing planning consent for a different scheme had “already established the acceptability” of the renovation and conversion of the listed school building, gatehouse, and stable block.

“The listed buildings to be demolished are of no historic or architectural merit and their demolition will enhance the appearance of the historic building,” a report to councillors on the borough’s planning committee said.
