Plans have been submitted to Bexley Council to demolish a shop next to Tesco at 104-106 Welling High Street.
A replacement shop unit would be included in plans along with flats above. Ten are planned in total.
The current shop building is uninspiring at best. No great loss architecturally.
Here’s the replacement:
The building would be four stories high which is fine beside the taller Tesco and on a High Street location. The sheer number of public transport options renders having a car unnecessary.
No doubt the usual arguments of “what about U, Y or Z” come up but no one will force X, Y or Z to live there.
A number of other schemes are on the drawing board in Welling including flats behind the Nag’s Head pub and adding another storey to a number of shops on the High Street.
