Bromley Council has launched a consultation on how the future of the borough will look. Local residents can have their say on proposed sites for housing, school and employment use for the coming 15 years.
This consultation exercise will help the council to develop Bromley’s Local Plan. This will showcase the plans for development in the borough into the 2030s. The consultation has proposals on draft site allocations for land that will be used for education, business, housing and conservation. It also looks at the plans for Crystal Palace Park and Biggin Hill and has revisions to proposals that featured in earlier consultations.
Residents have until the end of this month to have their say on the plans. The council will then use the comments to put together the final draft of the Local Plan. It will need to go through a further consultation process before it can be submitted for independent examination by the Secretary of State next year.
Details on how to respond to the consultation can be found at www.bromley.gov.uk/localplan. If you require a printed copy of the documents, such as the Draft Allocations, designations proposals and further policies, they are available from Bromley’s Civic Centre and Community House, local libraries, and the Cotmandene and Mottingham Community and Learning Shops.
Have you seen the proposals contained within the consultation? Will you be submitting any comments? How do you think the future of Bromley should look?
