Raising the roof on Welling High Street

Plans have been submitted to re-clad and add additional floors to a row of shops along Welling High Street between Morrisons and the Nag’s Head pub.

This image shows the number of units covered by this submission:

Two additional floors are planned to add 10 flats on the stretch from 39-69 Welling High Street.

They plan to use timber cladding along the facade. Timber cladding tends to age terribly quickly after completion unless treated:

The top floor will be clad in aluminium. This is common on development – presumably to be inauspicious. Yet it often still out like a sore thumb with a tin-shack-on-the-roof look.

The planning reference is 17/02046/FULM

    I like the look of the plans BUT the cladding should be of the highest grade if there is not to be another Grenfell Tower disaster. I am not confident that lessons have been learned and cost will always be the bottom line.

    Definitely an improvement on what’s currently there anyway.

    That parade does look a bit decrepit next to the practically-brand-new Morrisons and Tesco. Good to see some redevelopment for Welling anyway, it’s been going downhill for years and would be completely dead if not for the supermarkets.
