Plans to revitalise Bromley North with a £5million make-over are set to go ahead this summer.

The project, part of the Bromley Town Centre Area Action Plan, will look to provide an economic boost to the area and could be completed by Christmas 2014.

Encompassing Market Square, High Street North and East Street, the scheme will see new pavements, new lights, more trees and improved street furniture.

The scheme is funded in partnership with Bromley Council, The Mayor’s Outer London Fund and Transport for London - who provided an initial £300,000 for design work.

Cllr Peter Morgan, executive for renewal and recreation, said: “This is fantastic news for the town centre and in these difficult times it is vital to do all we can to ensure people want to shop, trade and spend time in the town centre.

“This year is already proving to be critical with a number of exciting projects underway that will ultimately drive forward our long term vision to Build a Better Bromley and the competitiveness of our town.”

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
