439 Brockley Road on the market

437-439 Brockley Road - the site hidden behind pink hoardings opposite the Brockley Jack - has been put up for sale, with planning permission for two A1 retail units on the ground floor and residential space for up to nine flats.

The development has had a torrid history, with earlier proposals criticised for being overbearing, but the scheme that has secured planning permission is well-balanced and the fact that there are two shops means there is the prospect of something more interesting than a supermarket appearing there.

With thanks to James.
