Loampit Hill shop redevelopment

Following a threatened forced auction of 63 Loampit Hill (a shop on the corner of Tyrwhitt Road), a planning application has been submitted to the Council for the decrepit building's redevelopment. The application describes the plans as:

The demolition of the existing extension and construction of a single storey extension to the rear of 63 Loampit Hill SE13, together with an extension to the side roof slope, installation of roof lights to the front and rear roof slopes, elevational alterations to the rear and new shopfront to facilitate conversion of the property to provide a shop and 1 two bedroom self-contained flat on the ground floor, 1 one bedroom self-contained flat on the first floor and a self-contained studio flat on the second floor.

There are no documents to sift through yet, so we can't comment on the plans, but something needed to happen to this site to stop it rotting away and it's good to see that the retail element will be retained. Together with the rejuvenation of The Talbot and the demolition of the WP Stone workshop, Brockley's most north easterly corner has finally shaken off inertia.

With thanks to Tyrwhitt Michael.
