Plans for a new block of flats in Crystal Palace are set to be approved by Bromley Councillors.

A scheme for nine new apartments in Anerley Road are poised to get the backing from councillors at a meeting next week.

Developers plan to bulldoze two terraced houses in place of a four-storey block of flats.

The scheme has had the backing of officers at Bromley Council who have earmarked it for the green light.

In a new report, officers said: “The development would have a high quality design and would not have an unacceptable impact on the amenity of neighbouring occupiers.

“The standard of the accommodation that will be created will be good. The proposal would not have an adverse impact on the local road network or local parking conditions.

“It is therefore recommended that planning permission is granted subject to the imposition of suitable conditions contained within this report.”

The developers have not proposed any parking for the new building.

One neighbour has objected to the proposal claiming it could render occupants “homeless”.

They said: “I totally object to this idea of building planning.

“If the council can provide me an accommodation then I don’t mind but you have to think about the conditions of all the tenants before you make any decisions.”

The scheme will be considered at a meeting next Thursday, May 9.
