Belvedere housing block again up for approval after revisions made

Bexley Council’s planning committee will this week decide on revised plans for a block of flats in Belvedere.

This site covered the site back in 2020 with proposals at the time approved. Planning Officers are recommending approval for these latest changes.

Bexley councillors had previously approved a substantial reduction in affordable housing on site despite being one of the worst boroughs in London for “affordable” homes.

The revision brings “affordable” housing back up to 35 per cent and a total of 81 flats.

An accompanying report states: “This revision will now include policy compliant affordable housing of 35%, with a tenure split of 70% (20 units) rented and 30% (8 units) intermediate”.

Other changes include a greater number of three-bedroom units.

Before completion. Starbucks on right from this angle. Pub is behind.

The site sits next to 402 homes, a Travelodge, The Morgan pub, Starbucks and Lidl constructed some years ago.

The site sits a walk from belvedere station, and wider belvedere is seeing a large number of planning applications.

Thameslink trains however are still sailing by without stopping, despite journey times being timetabled for exactly the same period as Southeastern trains that do stop.

Yet Southeastern will be cutting back some services from December.
