Developer submits planning application for Beckenham GlaxoSmithKline site
DEVELOPERS have submitted a planning application for the old GlaxoSmithKline site in Beckenham after a year of consultation.
The proposed scheme, for the land off South Eden Park Road, includes houses, a health centre, a network of footpaths and cycle paths, a pre-school and a youth cricket training facility.
The application is now available to view on the Bromley Council website and the developer Altessen (a joint venture between Altyon and Essential Land) will be holding another public exhibition next month.
Martin Bellinger, partner at Essential Land, said: “Through a combination of community-led planning and consultation via social media, we’ve been able to give local people a real say in the future of this important site.
“The feedback we have received has led to a number of refinements to the proposals and we are very grateful for the input of local residents and residents groups as well as local schools and sports clubs.
“We now have a detailed masterplan which I am confident is the product of, and meets with the approval of, both my team and a large number of local residents.
“We hope that the scheme will receive the planning authority’s approval when it is considered in the summer, and look forward to really making the proposals a reality.”
