Plans for a major regeneration scheme including a 15-storey tower in Bromley town centre have been submitted to the council.

The proposals, which follow a development agreement between Countryside and Bromley Council, includes the demolition of 20 maisonettes in Ethelbert Close, Bromley Town Church and three shops in Bromley High Street.

If given the go-ahead, the Churchill Quarter will include a new promenade and a cultural hub.

The height of the proposed apartment blocks ranges from a single storey up to 15 floors – bringing a total of 410 new homes to the town centre.

Room for shops, restaurants and bars has also been included in the plans.

A community space would replace the demolished Town Church.

The Churchill Quarter is listed as an area earmarked for regeneration by the council’s 2010 Area Action Plan.

According to planning documents: “The proposals seek to replace the existing retail units on the north-eastern corner and create a continuation into the site. This will enhance the viability and vitality of the town centre and will provide for active frontages below the residential units.

“The proposed retail use will complement the High Street and work as a mechanism to encourage footfall into the public spaces within the site.”

During consultations concerns were raised about retaining library gardens, as well as the amount of parking and affordable housing available.

The proposals include 103 car parking spaces, the redesigning of the library gardens and link into Bromley High Street and 35 per cent affordable housing.
