A number of planning applications relating to sites in Beckenham have recently been submitted to Bromley Council or have been approved or refused by their Planning Department. Here are the details of some of the prominent applications that will impact on the local area and the progress of the plans in question.
Consent has been given for developers to demolish a light industrial site on Copers Cope Road, which is adjacent to the railway at New Beckenham Station. This will provide space for eight new five-bedroom homes.
Tudor Manor in Beckenham Palace Park has been given the green light for demolition. Three two-storey properties will be built in its place.
Following the withdrawal of an earlier application, developers have submitted revised plans to the Council for a late 19th-century property on Copers Cope Road to be demolished. They will then build a four-storey apartment block in its place that consists of nine flats and a basement. The council is due to decide on the application on Thursday.
An outline application regarding the demolition of Royce House on Copers Cope Road has been refused. The plans were for five four-bedroom properties to be built in its place.
The council has also rejected an application for work on The Avenue. The plans were to demolish an existing property and build two apartment blocks consisting of eight two-bedroom flats.
How do you feel the council planning department takes local views and concerns into account when deciding on applications?
