POSSIBLE REDEVELOPMENT ON THE COURT'S SITE, BROMLEY ROAD
« on: February 21, 2007, 02:39:13 PM »
Many residents have been concerned about the possible redevelopment of the Court’s site at the junction of Bromley Road and Whitefoot Lane. This is a sensitive area because it is a very busy and dangerous junction, close to a school and residential properties.

Transport for London have already come up with a widening scheme which will cause Langthorne Court to lose part of its frontage later this year. At present this green area is a valuable barrier which holds back at least some of the noise and fumes of the road.

On January 18th there was a public Meeting  ‘Bromley Road Consultation’ run by a company called Four Communications at the Bellingham Leisure and Lifestyle centre regarding the development of what was the Courts site in Bromley Road.

It’s rumoured that a 16 storey block of flats may be built on this site; the Development company involved has not yet revealed its name. Some of the objections raised, included that flats in this area should be no more than 8 stories high, there are insufficient doctor’s surgeries, dental practices and schools in the area to cope with the high number of residents who would populate this proposed development.

At their Tenants Association, residents of Langthorne Court said: “ Who is the developer behind this scheme? And who actually owns the site? At present they are hiding behind a marketing company who don’t even seem to know what is proposed.” Chair of the Tenants and Leaseholders Association, said: “Any development on this corner will need to be looked at very carefully in the light of the potential for more traffic congestion and danger and the strain that would be put on local services by a large development”. Let us know your views on development of this site in Bromley Road.
