Two separate multi storey planning applications in Sherman Road were rejected at last night’s Development Control Committee meeting (Tuesday, September 11).

The mixed-use applications, which both included residential and commercial space comprising a 10 storey and a 23-storey development respectively, were both rejected unanimously.

The 10-storey application was submitted by South East Living Group and the 23-storey application by Prime Place (Sherman Road Bromley) LLP.

Cllr Alexa Michael, chairman of development control committee, said: “We had a number of concerns about each of these proposed developments, with both of the proposals harming the setting of the Conservation Area.

“The outline 10-storey proposal would have a detrimental impact on residents living in the neighbouring 10-storey Northpoint apartment block.

“We were also highly concerned about the overly dominant 23 storey application and the wider impact this would have.

“It appears that both applications were stand-alone in nature and this approach compromises the potential deliverability of the wider draft allocation in relation to the size, scale and design, all contrary to policies in the Draft Local Plan.

He also said that a development plan for the whole of the Bromley North site was needed, and hsould be brought forward soon, rather than piecemeal applications.

The Prime Place (Sherman Road Bromley) LLP application on 6-10 Sherman Road included the demolition of the existing buildings and the redevelopment of the site with a mixed-use, 23-storey scheme comprising 219 Build-to-Rent apartments and commercial space.

The stepped development proposed a maximum of 23 storeys within the central element, stepping down to 18 storeys to the south and four storeys to the north where the site adjoins 10A Sherman Road.

The outline application submitted by South East Living Group on 10A Sherman Road and included the redevelopment of the site with a mixed-use, 10-storey scheme comprising 6 one bed residential units and 3 two bed units over the six upper floors with commercial space on the lower 3 floors.
