Important Planning Developments in Bromley Town Centre

Bromley Civic Society would like to make local residents and businesses aware of current proposals that we believe will have a significant impact on the future face of Bromley town centre.

There will be a consultation on proposals for designated “Site A” near Bromley North Station on Thursday 14 September, from 17.00-21.00 at St John the Evangelist Church Hall, Park Rd Bromley. We understand that the proposal here is for a tower block higher than that currently under construction at Bromley South. A further consultation will take place on Saturday 16 September 12.30-16.30 at the Central Library, Bromley. Please see our flyer here.

The second proposal concerns the proposed redevelopment of the Library Gardens near central library (“Site G”) about which the BCS has already made representations. Please see our flyer here.
