Old Bromley Town Hall to be converted into high quality hotel

News Shopper: The old Bromley town hall. The old Bromley town hall.

A FOUR star hotel, restaurant, wedding venue and conference centre is planned for the old Bromley Town Hall - one of Bromley's most historic buildings.

The original features of the Grade II listed building, which was constucted in 1906, will be restored and its historic setting enhanced.

This comes after Bromley Council entered into a conditional agreement to grant a long lease of the prominent town centre site in Tweedy Road to the Cathedral Group Plc.

Leader of the Council Councillor Stephen Carr said: "We are committed to ensuring that Bromley maintains its competitive position, building on our rich heritage, as well as stimulating new and quality developments.

"The Town Hall site is a fantastic opportunity to provide the town with a high class facility, enhancing Bromley’s offer to visitors, shoppers and residents."

Richard Upton, Cathedral Group Plc Chief Executive, said: "We are looking to create a high quality destination hotel in an iconic local building that will attract corporate clients with its top grade conference facilities and meet local demand for a first class entertainment and wedding venue."

Planning and listed building consent applications are expected later this year.

Hang on a minuite, what about the proposed Bromley South development, which includes yet another huge hotel development by Cathedral?

Is Dear Stephen planning to sell the whole of Bromley to Cathedral Group Plc? I don't see how turning the town centre into yet more hotels & yet more restauarants is "protecting our heritage?"

How many hotels does Bromley need, its hardly the place to go. The travel lodge in Sidcup, I wonder how long that lasts.

Totally agree.... most people who are working or visiting London on business will stay in hotels paid for no doubt by their company etc... and therefore will prefer to use Hotels more central to London. Plus those on a budget wont be looking at staying here either. I cant see there will be much of a demand for a few nights stay in Bromley especially if its going to be a so called top hotel with no doubt top dollar rates to match!!!!!
