A planning application for 35 homes in Orpington has been confirmed by Bromley Council.

The scheme, in York Rise, is set to become the largest housing development plan in the council's 'Bromley homes for Bromley people' project.

The proposal will include terraced maisonettes of two or three storeys and a four-storey apartment building.

Bromley Council has worked alongside Rivington Street Studio to finalise the design.

Councillor Morgan, Executive Councillor for Renewal, Recreation and Housing said: “The York Rise development joins a number of our ongoing developments as we continue to deliver Bromley homes for Bromley people.

“This development will provide a good number of high-quality affordable homes for residents and families who need them.

“This planning approval is a welcome step forward and will help to reduce the number of families the council houses in expensive, nightly paid accommodation.”

The Council also has another three housing developments underway to be completed early next year.

A total of 25 apartments are also being constructed in the Brindley Way car park on Burnt Ash Lane.

Another 25 homes are being developed in Bushell Way in Chislehurst.

A further 10 apartments are also under construction next to Anerley Town Hall.

The date for construction is still yet to be confirmed.
