Brockley Cross in bloom

An application has been made to install a new shop front at the site of the former flower shop on Brockley Cross.

Peter Brimson Associates of Brockley Rise has made the application on behalf of the shop's Irish landlords.

Mr Brimson said today that the new shop front would be a "high quality timber shop front" to replace the current facade.

He was not able to confirm whether this work was purely speculative, or whether a potential tennant had been lined up. The shop interior has already been remodelled since the flower shop moved out.

Any investment in this currently pretty moribund part of Brockley is to be welcomed, so long as it complies with the conservation area regulations on appropriate signage and security screening is probably to be welcomed...
