Langley Court in Beckenham could soon be the host of 280 new high quality homes, with some geared towards meeting the needs for affordable housing.

The planning application was sent to the council by CALA Homes, and proposes a broad range of properties with a mix of one to three-bedroom apartments as well as two to five-bedroom homes.

Of the properties provided, 35pc aim to meet the needs of affordable housing for rental and shared equity tenures.

The plans also feature a broad range of family homes, in line with local demand from downsizers, families and younger people.

The application is part of a joint proposal with Signature Care Homes, who will additionally be delivering a new 100 bedroom care home on the site.

Outline planning consent was granted for residential housing comprising predominantly four, five and six bedroom houses in 2011.

As well as the provision of a brand new care home, CALA’s proposal includes significant financial contributions towards the local community.

CALA Homes has consulted closely with local residents and council officers throughout the formulation of its proposals and prior to the submission of the formal planning application to Bromley Council.

Ian Humble, planning manager at CALA Homes, said: “We have worked hard to ensure that the proposals are sensitively designed in order to deliver a well-considered and high quality development on a brownfield site that will positively contribute to the area.

“We were grateful for all the feedback received during the successful consultation period and have, where possible, incorporated the community’s views into the final planning application.

“The proposed new development will play an important role in generating the new homes needed within Beckenham and the wider area, as well as providing much-needed affordable housing.”

CALA Homes is the UK’s most upmarket major home builder operating in the South, the Midlands and Scotland.

The company is a Top 10 UK home builder focused on building well-designed, high quality homes in prime locations.
