A five-storey block of flats proposed for a site behind Bourne Way and Prickley Wood has generated a large number of objections from local residents.
The development would be on the site of the Bromley & Blackheath Harriers’ clubhouse behind Bourne Way, next to the railway line, comprising 36 flats. Although the site itself is around 2.5 metres below street level, the top storey would still extend above the rooflines of neighbouring houses. However, the developer points out that the nearest residences in Bourne Way and Prickley Wood are more than 30 metres (100 ft) away, and those in Saville Row 18 metres (60ft).
Concerns have also been raised about the adequacy of the current access road, which runs between 58 Bourne Way and Woodgrange Court; a traffic light system is proposed for this route.
As your local councillors, we have also been approached by many residents mainly objecting to the plans. At the time of writing, we are awaiting a committee date, though the meeting is currently expected in late February or March.
