Bromley Council will request permission from its own planning authority next week in a bid to build a block of flats in an under-used car park.

It’s the second time Bromley have attempted to push forward the project, consisting of 10 residential units, set for an overflow car park next to Anerley Town Hall.

Councillors in 2017 rejected the plan over concerns it would be “overbearing” to surrounding homes, with the planning inspector upholding the complaint amid concerns over the amount of natural light future residents at the site would get.

A new terraced design has been submitted in a bid to combat that issue, with the new plans including four one-bed and six two-bedroom flats.

A new driveway leading onto George Groves Road and seven new off-street car parking spaces would be constructed as well.

While the council acknowledged the loss of the car park could impact the neighbouring Anerley Town Hall,  the authority’s traffic and parking team ruled the loss of the facility was unlikely to have much of an impact due to its current low levels of use as an overflow.

Bromley’s development control committee is set to meet on November 19.
