Plans for four storey block of flats and new homes in Sidcup have been submitted to Bexley Council.

Hatherley Investments has proposed a scheme for 11 new homes for a site at 38 Hatherley Road.

If given the green light a large detached property currently being used as three flats would be demolished and replaced a four storey block of eight two bed flats and three two storey homes.

The developers said the current building is in "some state of disrepair."

Hatherley Investments said in its application: "The scheme has been devised to provide a modern form of development, making optimum use of this largely under-utilised site. The scheme would represent a marked visual

improvement when measured against what has become a somewhat unprepossessing and dilapidated property.

"The proposal would provide for a good standard of living conditions for the development."

Sidcup is an area earmarked for regeneration by the council, which in its Growth Strategy proposes a refurbished high street and boutique hotel alongside hundreds of new homes.
