Plans to bulldoze an empty car showroom in Anerley are set to be approved at the second time of developers asking.

Bromley Council has already turned down one scheme for homes at the former dealership in Church Road, but Crowntree Properties has come back with a revised offer.

The developer’s proposals for eight two-bedroom and one three-bed family flats, spread across four storeys, are set to be given the green light at a meeting on Thursday.

Officers at the council said in a new report: “The revised proposed development maximises opportunities for enhancement and improvement within the Crystal Palace Renewal Area.

“The development would have a high-quality design and would not have an unacceptable impact on the amenity of neighbouring occupiers.”

Not everybody is backing the plans, with objectors saying it would “harm the historic and sensitive heritage location at this part of Church Road.”

Crystal Palace Triangle Planning Group blasted the proposals for having a poor design and for having excessive parking.

The car showroom has been empty since 2003, sitting on the border of Bromley and Croydon.

In a statement, Crowntree says this would bring benefits to the area, including “the provision of nine new dwellings which would contribute towards the borough’s housing supply targets” and “the opportunity to regenerate a long unused site”.

Officers have recommended councillors approve the plans, subject to a legal agreement, at a meeting on Thursday, April 11.
