APPLICATION TO REGISTER LAND BEHIND 94-98 AND 126 HIGH STREET, BECKENHAM AS A TOWN OR VILLAGE GREEN
Planning permission is given for construction of 3 blocks of 4 storey flats on the site, however, local residents backing on to the site formed Central Beckenham Resident’s Association and lodged an application for the site to be designated a ‘Town Green’. If the Town Green application was successful it would have superseded any planning permission granted on the site.
A public enquiry was held by QC Annabel Graham Paul in regard to the Town Green Application, were evidence was given by Central Beckenham Resident’s Association among others. The outcome of the enquiry can be found at the link below.
On the recommendation of the Inspector Report, Bromley Council declined to register land behind 94-98 and 126 High Street, Beckenham as a town or village green. This means the development of 3 blocks of 4 storey flats on the site will likely go ahead
