Supermarket plan for HOP replacement

Developers plan to merge the two units at the centre of this parade

Developers are proposing to merge two empty shop units from the Honor Oak Park parade to create a single unit that could accommodate a small supermarket. Formerly, the units were occupied by Indo Bangla and the Honor Oak Tandoori.

The news follows speculation on the Honor Oak forum that the site had been targeted by a supermarket chain.

An application has been submitted for:
The part demolition, alterations and conversion of the ground floor shop units to form one retail unit (Use Class A1) at 57-59 Honor Oak Park SE23, together with the construction of a part single/part two storey extension at the rear, provision of a 1.8 metre high timber fence at first floor level, installation of new windows and doors in the rear elevation, refuse & recycle storage at the rear and the re-configuration of the upper floor flats to provide 1 one bedroom self-contained maisonette, 2 one bedroom self-contained flats and 2 two bedroom self-contained maisonettes.

The developers are the people behind the planned redevelopment of St Cyprian's Church on Brockley Road, which has yet to leave the drawing board.
