Developers are back for the third time (at least) with plans to build large housing blocks by Lower Sydenham station on a former sports club.

This time around they want to build 151 homes after prior applications were refused.

There would be 63 one bedroom, 80 two bedroom and 8 three bedroom homes.

In 2016 plans for 253 homes were blocked on appeal. In May 2017 plans for 229 homes were again rejected.

The site is next to developer Crest Nicholson’s flats on Phase 1 of Dylon Works. That includes 223 homes next to Lower Sydenham station on Southeastern’s Hayes line.

The site is currently designated as Metropolitan Open Land though is inaccessible to the public and largely blocked off from public view. An attempt to placate planners has been made by landscaping much of the site under new plans and opening them up to the public.

The river is also opened up.

What do you think of these plans? Better than before? Leave a comment below
