Sainsbury’s and Young’s pub proposal submitted for Kidbrooke’s new town centre

Berkeley Homes have formally submitted plans for the commercial spaces at the base of new towers beside Kidbrooke station.

Three units are included but only two are confirmed. One is Sainsbury’s, which will move from its current temporary locations, and the other is a Young’s pub.

Sainsbury’s will be almost directly next to the new station. Plans were submitted last month and covered here.

Whilst welcome, these retail additions are not huge for a development of 4,300 homes and more are expected in coming years.

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

    Kidbrooke Village is now growing fast with building by Kidbrooke Station well under construction.

    It will be nice to have the Young’s Pub as a community pub on the development for locals to meet up.

    As the Sainsbury’s store will still be quiet small for the amount of residents who will live on Kidbrooke Village. When Sainsbury’s move to the new store adjacent to Kidbrooke Station they could let there existing temporary store to another retailer to use.
