Site A (Site 2 in the Local Plan): Bromley North station. Mixed use blocks surrounding Bromley North station. Very high number of flats allocated in the plan, so due to overshadow the station and dominate the town centre.
The site is in several ownerships but mainly Network Rail. The AAP plan is to redevelop the Station and area behind for a mixed use development comprising 525 housing units, 2000sqm offices, 230sqm cafe/retail and unspecified community space. Part of the site is identified as possibly suitable for a tall or taller building.
An application for a 23 storey block on one small site was opposed by BCS and refused by Council in 2018. Whilst that was being considered, an outline application for 12 storeys, only 2 meters away from Northpoint (formerly Sherman House) was also submitted. Both of these were appealed, and fortunately they were refused. Please see their latest status at the Babbacombe Road (and area) Residents Association.
The Council are considering drawing up a Masterplan for the whole area to prevent piecemeal development. The Station building is Grade II listed and would be retained.
