LBB has approved a new application for a school to be built - Eden Park High School. The new building will bat the former Co Op sports ground at Balmoral Avenue, Beckenham.
LBB's development control committe Councillor Peter Dean said: “These were very difficult decisions, with local residents and parents reflecting equally strong views, alongside the expert opinions and those of the applicants. Whilst accepting the inevitable disruption to Balmoral Avenue residents the committee felt the educational need was more important.”
The school will be operated by the E21C multi-Academy Trust which includes Ravensbourne School, Hayes and will have a total of 1680 students of which 1200 are secondary and 580 6th form pupils with 120 staff.
