69 more flats and Lidl planned at Belvedere development beside Starbucks, Morgan pub and Travelodge

Plans have been submitted for another block of flats at the Belvedere Park development by Yarnton Way.

These plans take the total number of homes to nearly 500 on the site, which is around a five minute walk from Belvedere station.

An increasing number of businesses has opened over time, with The Morgan pub being one of the first, then a Travelodge hotel. A Starbucks followed, and Lidl have also applied to open a store.

The block will top out a six floors.

Bexley Council have plans for thousands more homes in the area plus an outlet shopping centre in their recently published Growth Strategy.

Belvedere station has seen growth from 733k passengers a year in 2012/13 to 1.037m in 2016/17, yet it’s one of the few stations where Thameslink does not stop on the line. Will that change as more homes open?

The planning reference is 18/02135/OUTM

    I think the Lidl Planning application may be passed by Bexley Council has it is providing much needed homes for the area above the Lidl store. Mixed retail/housing developments have proven to be successful in many other areas including Tesco in Welling and Lidl in Lee Green.
