Deadline extended for Bromley development site consultation
PUBLISHED: 15:33 13 August 2018
The deadline for consultation about a proposed masterplan for a key development site in the heart of Bromley town centre has been extended. Respondents now have until September 14 to comment on the masterplan proposals for the 4.5 hectare site which extends along the west side of the High Street from Bromley South station to the Churchill Theatre in the north.
Three new consultative exhibition dates are also being announced, with the council’s town centre renewal team on hand to answer questions about the proposals.
The new exhibition dates follow two previous days held last week.
Once finalised, the masterplan proposals are expected to guide development on this site over the next 15 years.
Full details of the proposals about the area known as Opportunity Site G, which has been slightly extended in draft Local Plan as Site 10, are available on the council’s website at www.bromley.gov.uk/Masterplan.
Cllr Peter Morgan, executive councillor for renewal, recreation and housing, said: “We would like to thank those who have already responded to this consultation and I am pleased to confirm that consultation period is being extended.
“Part of the masterplan includes proposals to retain historical features within the site, with no listed building being proposed to be demolished and improved access to nearby greenspace.
“Also, although Phase 1 of the site is subject to a current planning application, it is important to note that the consultation covers the wider site.”
Cllr Morgan added that the consultation is not about the principle of development, but instead the location, mix and amount of development expected.
In addition to the proposals being published on the council’s website, the consultative exhibition days give interested parties an opportunity to ask questions about the masterplan proposals.
The Town Centre Renewal team will be on hand in the Glades shopping centre, on the first floor near Holland and Barrett, on the following dates and times:
·Thursday August 23, 4pm-8pm
·Friday August 31, 10am-4pm
·Saturday September 1, 10am-4pm
When the consultation period ends on September 14, responses will be analysed and reported as part of the decision making process so that suggested changes can be considered.
