A developer is proposing to make use of land adjacent to Tweedy Road in Bromley by building three new blocks of flats.

Each of the three buildings would be three-storeys containing 24 homes.

If Bromley Council grants the application, the flats will be two-bedroomed and can house up to four people.

An application to build 72 homes at the site was rejected a decade ago because it was an "overdevelopment" with "excessive bulk and size".

This decision was appealed before being dismissed in April of 2009.

Developer Mcculloch Homes Limited says the new proposed flat blocks would be of a similar height to the existing neighbouring buildings along Tweedy Road.

A statement on the application reads: "The proposed development would not be un-neighbourly, dominant or overbearing in the outlook from windows."

Views of the Bromley conservation area and of Bromley and Sheppard's Colleges are visible from the planned blocks which would have "good separation distances" between them.

One person left the following comment on the application: "The proposed building is too close to Sheppard's College - inhibited by elderly people in their 70s and 80s.

"What percentage of the homes will be social housing?"

Parking would be provided for 24 vehicles along with 48 bike storage spots being accessible.
