Bromley Council have approved the submission of a multi-million pound bid for improvements in Beckenham town centre.

If successful, the council will ‘part match fund’ the grant from Transport for London (TfL), which will be used to install new lighting columns, new street furniture and new granite pavements.

A decision from TfL is due to be made early next month.

Cllr Peter Morgan, executive for renewal and recreation, said: “Beckenham is home to a diverse and successful range of independent businesses, specialist shops, restaurants and cafes and is a fantastic place to live and work.

“This is an exciting time for the future of the town and we can make a real difference by all working together.”
