A five-storey car park will be demolished after Bromley Council made the final agreements to the £80million Bromley South Central development last week.

Westmoreland Road car park will remain open until 10pm on Bank Holiday Monday before closing for good on April 2.

The structure, built in the 1960s, will make way for a new Vue cinema, 200 new homes, a 130 bedroom Premier Inn hotel and a lower ground car park with 400 spaces.

Council leader, Cllr Stephen Carr, said: “This is a landmark development that will start to transform the town centre and provide first class leisure facilities for residents.

“Attracting high quality development has always been a critical part of our area action plan but the reality of this approach is that it takes time, particularly in the current economic climate.

“We remain resolutely committed to our Building a Better Bromley agenda and firmly believe that Bromley remains a compelling opportunity for investors.”

The development is expected to be open in Autumn 2014.
