A huge planning application has been submitted to Bromley Council to deliver hundreds of new homes to Beckenham.

As part of the proposal for Langley Court South Eden Park Road - a care home consisting of 100 beds is also intended to “meet local need”.

The planning application says Langley Park “will contribute significantly to the identified need for older persons housing”.

Developers said the care home would "incorporate a kitchen garden and orchard to encourage residents to engage in gardening activities".

A total of 280 homes would be built if Bromley Council accepts the proposal from CALA Management Limited.

The new homes would consist of one, two and three bedroom apartments and two, three, four and five bedroom houses.

Of the 280 homes, 42.5 per cent of them would be affordable: these comprise of 31 one bedroom apartments, 69 two bedroom apartments, 10 three bedroom apartments and nine three bedroom apartments.

The developer said on the application: "The proposed scheme provides increased housing delivery on a strategically important site to the Borough in meeting its housing target."

A planning application was accepted in June 2014 to deliver 179 new homes, a medical centre and the retention of the sports pavilion.

The deadline to act on the application passed and a revised scheme has now been put forward.

As part of the new application, the existing sports pavilion would remain.

The proposed transformation of Langley Park would see 535 car parking spaces introduced.
