Bogs signal balloons have gone up at 180 Brockley Road

BCer Monkeyboy has spotted portaloos on site at 180 Brockley Road, the former MOT garage, which has been targeted for redevelopment.

Bits and pieces of the building have been removed in recent weeks and the site has been vacated, so it looks as though work, which was due to start last year, has begun. The most recent application (refused), which made minor changes to the plans approved last year, was for:

The demolition of the existing buildings on the site of 180 Brockley Road SE4 and the construction of a part two/ part three/ part four storey block, comprising 454.5m2 commercial floor space (Use Classes A1 (Shops), A2 (Financial and Professional), A3 (Restaurants and Cafes), B1 (Business), 3 studio flats, 11 one bedroom, 9 two bedroom and 2 three bedroom self-contained flats, together with refuse and cycle storage, associated highway and public realm works.

The development changed hands recently and is now being led by Peveril Securities (which is part of Bowmer & Kirkland) and Boultbee. This is a critical piece of the Brockley landscape and could be great news or a massive setback, if it goes wrong.
