Redesign for proposed Bexleyheath housing block

Last month I covered plans to sell a block on the Broadway in Bexleyheath after approval for conversion and extension to residential usage.

The current owners are now looking at changes before apparently selling the site.

It’s likely the existing owners seek approval before flipping the site and are asking £2.9 million. Gone are plans for white render on the exterior as seen in this earlier plan:

Approved in April 2020

In it’s place is what appears to be the same exterior as today:

New plans

The drab upper floor remains. The use of grey cladding – zinc in all likelihood – usually appears pretty cheap and nasty when complete.

The application proposes start on site in June 2021, though with it for sale that seems unlikely.

Converting office buildings and adding an additional floor does not require formal planning permission under Permitted Development Rights, meaning the local authority have minimal grounds to object and affordable housing does not need to be provided.

 

 

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.
