Coplan, a leading company in local authority mixed-use schemes has submitted a planning application to the London Borough of Bexley for a new eight-storey development in Sidcup adjacent to the railway station.
If approved, the new site will comprise an improved retail offer and provides 59 balconied residential units (a mixture of 1, 2 and 3 bedrooms), accommodating 17 residential parking spaces, 41 retail parking spaces, as well as 106 secure cycle spaces. A children’s play area is also planned for the communal area of the development.
Sidcup is a mere 13 miles from London by Road and has excellent 30 minute rail links to London Bridge, London Blackfriars and London Charing Cross Stations, making this a perfect destination for commuters.
Colin McQueston, Head of Development said:
“Prior to the submission of the application, we spent a considerable amount of time understanding local concerns over the development of the site and sought, where possible, to ensure these concerns where considered when producing our final proposals. Clearly the location of the site, adjacent to Sidcup Train Station, provides an excellent opportunity to provide much needed housing in a highly accessible and sustainable location. Should planning permission be granted the intention would be to commence construction as soon as possible.”
The original public consultations took place in September 2017, planning was submitted in May 2018 and a planning committee date is expected in September. 2018.
