Tesco plans for Crofton Park

A reliable (though admittedly single) source has notified us that Tesco has signed a 15-year lease on 437-439 Brockley Road.

Suggestions that Tesco is planning to occupy a site in Crofton Park have been circulating for months.

Developers submitted an application to turn 437-439 Brockley Road (opposite the Brockley Jack) in to a single commercial unit, which could house a small supermarket, similar to the Tesco on Lewisham Way. Those plans were rejected after demolition of the existing buildings had already taken place, with the Council deciding that the proposals would overdevelop the site.
