“We now want to hear from residents, businesses and others so if you are interested come along to our exhibition event or visit our website to view the plans. We are committed to improving Beckenham town centre and encouraging new investment to the historic area, which will support its future vibrancy.”
An event for businesses, residents and community groups with opportunities to view plans for the area and comment on the scheme, will be held in the town centre during the consultation process.
