Plans submitted for Bromley High Street scheme

Plans have been lodged for the mixed-use redevelopment of a row of Victorian Shops in Bromley High Street.

Panther Investment Properties' scheme would retain the four-storey frontages of 208, 210 and 214 High Street, but demolish all of the buildings behind, replacing them with an 820 sq feet retail unit and 26 homes.

According to Panther's planning application to Bromley Council, which was validated earlier this month, nine one-bedroom flats would be built above the retail unit, while 13 predominantly two-bed roomed flats with a communal roof garden would be built behind.

Four houses would also be built at the rear of the scheme, with parking spaces accessed from Edison Road.

A planning statement for the application submitted by architect FDR Design Associates said the proposals were in line with the principles set out in the coalition government's National Planning Policy Framework, making efficient use of land for housing to satisfy a local need without compromising the surrounding environment.

“It represents a well-designed, sustainable development proposal for a previously developed site and provides new homes within an established residential area,” it said.

Bromley Council planning officers have set a target determination date of October 31 for the application.
