Ten pre-built apartments were lifted into place next to Anerley Town Hall last week as part of a council-funded development.

The one and two-bedroom modular homes were constructed off site and dropped into place, a method favoured by the council to offer affordable rents.

Similar developments on Bushell Way and Burnt Ash Lane, each involving 25 homes, are expected to be completed by the end of the year.

Councillor Peter Morgan, Bromley's executive councillor for renewal recreation and Housing said, "I am pleased to see further progress being made on our housing sites and I look forward to the completion of all three of these developments.

“These sites will deliver a historic boost to the borough’s affordable housing supply from our initial investment of over £10m towards providing Bromley Homes for Bromley people.

“We are working hard to ensure that this accommodation is available to families who urgently need it. Increasing our housing supply also reduces our unsustainable reliance on maintaining families in expensive, nightly paid accommodation.

“The Council is constantly looking for further development opportunities to continue to provide housing for our residents.”

The three-storey development was designed by Architects Rivington Studio and delivered by M-AR, a modular building specialist.

It includes provisions for cycle storage, with seven off-street parking bays and electric car charging points.

The council’s first attempt to gain approval for similar plans in 2017 was rejected over concerns it would be “overbearing” to surrounding homes.

The latest development. forms part of an initial £10m investment by the council to build affordable housing across the borough.

Further sites are also being explored, including at York Rise, where a planning application for the development of 35 residential homes has been submitted.
