The plan covers areas including housing, open space and town centres

Outlining plans for the development of Bromley over the coming years will face final approval when they go to a full council meeting next week.

The draft local plan gives an overview of how the council expects to develop a number of areas, including housing, transport, environment and business around the borough into the 2030s.

The plan also acts as guidance for planning applications handed to the council up to 2031.

On Monday, all parties on the council will vote on whether to give final approval before sending it off to the government.

Among figures taken from the document, the plan suggests setting a minimum goal of 641 new homes around the borough each year.

The plan also highlights the need to “encourage safe town centres” by cutting down the number of empty shop units in towns around the borough, with Orpington and Bromley highlighted as the boroughs two key successes.
