Developer Berkeley Homes is buying Orpington Police Station to redevelop the town-centre site with a mixed-use scheme, it has emerged.
Members of Bromley Council’s renewal and recreation policy and development scrutiny committee were given the news in a round-up of activity on the borough’s major development sites.
A report from Kevin Munnelly, the borough’s head of renewal, said plans for the 0.5 hectare site currently involved housing and an NHS facility.
“Berkeley Homes are in the process of completing the purchase of the police station site with a view to developing a mixed-use scheme comprising residential and a health and well-being centre," he said.
“Officers are advising on the best way to bring this scheme forward.”
The police-station site is part of the wider Walnuts Shopping Centre, which is undergoing phased redevelopment.
