Plans have been submitted to Bromley Council to demolish The Chelsfield pub in Windsor Drive and replace with a new pub, shop and flats.
Controversial Punch Taverns are the developer who plans to build 10 flats on the site of a characterful 1930s boozer.
There’s no detailed renders which always is a worry. Basic drawings is all there is – and it looks pretty bland and boxy. It’s a prime site just beside Chelsfield station.
According to the proposal: “The development will make the most effective use of brownfield land whilst at the same time ensuring that the amenity of existing and future residents is protected.
According to plans, “The proposal will result in the creation of a new public house, re-providing the use in a modern and high quality setting that will better serve the existing and future community.”
Despite what they state, box new builds are not very popular as sites for pubs.
When it comes to a new shop they state:
“The provision of a new convenience store will help to extend pedestrian traffic to this end of the local parade and expand the range of retail facilities for existing and future residents.”.
