London Square lodges Hayes Court plans

Developer London Square has given Bromley Council initial proposals for the high-end residential scheme it plans for Hayes Court, which it bought for £20 million earlier this year.
It wants to create 24 new homes by converting the 230-year-old Grade II-listed building - formerly owned by the Unite union - into eight apartments, and building a further 16 houses in its grounds, off West Common Road.
In July 2013, Invest Bromley reported that London Square had snapped up the 2.57ha site and had appointed Formation Architects to create a scheme for it.
Pre-application screening proposals for the development, submitted on behalf of London Square by Montagu Evans, said seven two-bedroom apartments and a single one-bedroom apartment were proposed for the retained building’s conversion.
Other buildings would be demolished to make way for one three-bedroomed house, eight four bedroomed houses and seven five-bedroomed houses, a covering letter said.
“Inappropriate 20th Century buildings and curtilage buildings will be removed and the main building retained and refurbished," it added.
“The majority of existing trees on the site will be retained and the amount of hardstanding will be significantly reduced."
It said the increase in floorspace created by the proposals would be around 1,200sq metres.
