A COUNCIL is due to release a 15-year development plan for a town centre for public consultation.

Residents will be able to comment on the Bromley Town Centre Area Action Plan for 12 weeks, from mid November.

The plans include more than 2,000 new properties, extension of the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) to Bromley North station, more small retailers and specialist food outlets and better car parking provision.

The council also wants to expand culture and leisure facilities such as the development of the Concert Bowl in Library Gardens and look at new transport ideas such as expanding pedestrianisation of the town centre and protecting cycle lanes.

Other ideas include a department store, water features and schools and medical facilities for residents living in the new town centre housing.

The consultation finishes in late January.

The council will meet again on April 27 to discuss residents' comments and there will then be another six-week period for the public to make their views known before the plan is finally submitted to the government.
