Major new housing development proposed for west side

View Larger Map

A planning application has been made to build 32 new homes on the strip of brown field land between St Norbert Road and the railway line, right next to Brockley Station’s western entrance. The homes would be provided in two three-storey linear blocks.

Full details of the application are available here.

The designs look to be of reasonable quality and the new homes will rescue a derelict site, formerly occupied by light-industry, placing a buffer between the current homes and the noise of the railway line (which is about to get busier, thanks to the East London Line). However, it will also mean some homes’ gardens are overlooked, with some loss of sunlight in some cases. The project would join a long line of developments, clustered around the station, on the west side, including Bridge House, Glass House and Martin’s Yard.
