16-room student extension planned on Sidcup High Street

Plans have been submitted to extend a building on Sidcup High Street to create a 16-room student block.

The extension would be to the rear of Safeguarding Plus beside Betfred. The current building already has student flats above the shop. A neighbouring building also has student flats in a former snooker club.




Designs for the extension ensure little will be visible from the High Street given the extension will be located the rear beside Morrisons car park.

A letter of support from nearby Doreen Bird College of Dance, Music & Theatre Performance is included in the application. The College has existed since 1946. Click here to see some notable alumni.




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

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.

Thank you
