Brockley Road redevelopment begins

Demolition of the old buildings is currently taking place

The building bounded by Brockley Road, Cranfield Road and Harefield Mews is currently being redeveloped. The project involves the construction of 6 new flats and the refurbishment of two shop fronts at 169-171 Brockley Road - the Holistic Centre (which is in a particularly sorry state) and the Essence of India.

The current shop fronts will be reclad in timber, the air conditioning units removed from the roof, open mesh shutters installed, wooden sash windows will replace the uPVC ones and the brick work will be cleaned.

The storage and courtyard space on Cranfield Road has largely been demolished. The building programme should take approximately six months and when it's finished, let us hope we get something more like this and less like this.
