A previously rejected Bromley council scheme to build a block of new homes in a car park across from Anerley Town Hall has been given new life, with rejigged plans lodged by the authority.
The council earlier this month submitted plans to build four one-bed and six two-bedroom flats on the old car park, in a terraced block up to three storeys high.
It’s the second tilt the authority has had at developing the car park and comes after their first attempt for a similar plan in 2017 was rejected over concerns it would be “overbearing” to surrounding homes.
