Council puts conveniences on the block

by Jim Dunton Mon 19 August 2013, 5:16 pm

Bromley Council is marketing three stand-alone public-toilet blocks as potential redevelopment sites.

It is selling the freeholds of blocks at Elmers End Green, in Beckenham, and Green Street Green in Orpington, as well as a 43-year lease on a block in Kingsway, Coney Hall.

The sale follows a 2011 decision by the  authority’s resources lead for the phased closure of a number of public toilets.

Bromley said the blocks ranged in size from 21 to 90 sq metres, and that a range of uses could be possible for them, subject to planning consent - however it said residential use was not considered suitable.

The sale is being conduced by informal tender, with a bid deadline of noon on 2 October.
