439 Brockley Road on the market

437-439 Brockley Road - the site hidden behind pink hoardings opposite the Brockley Jack - has been put up for sale, with planning permission for two A1 retail units on the ground floor and residential space for up to nine flats.

The development has had a torrid history, with earlier proposals criticised for being overbearing, but the scheme that has secured planning permission is well-balanced and the fact that there are two shops means there is the prospect of something more interesting than a supermarket appearing there.

With thanks to James.

9 flats. A very convenient number as it means there is no obligation for any affordable housing at the site.

You could squeeze more flats in, but then the next commentard will complain about shoe box size flats... I guess you could build more floors, but then a NIMBY will complain about the height.


It's a small site. We need more housing, whether they be private or affordable.

This will only prevent a supermarket if there is a planning condition that keeps the two retail units separate.

On the way to work this morning I spotted the artist doing the paint job on the hoarding...

The two retail units are separated by a big entrance lobby and the stairs to the flats. It wouldn't be possible to combine them into a supermarket-sized unit.
