Bromley's Green Belt is under Threat
Crest Homes Property
developers have been granted by Bromley Council to build a variety of new
dwellings more or less on the footprints of existing buildings such as the
Redwood Centre and stable block. They had previously got permission for the main
house and 39 acres of land to revert to residential use. Nothing too terrible
about all this , the
real problem is the permission to build 12 luxury homes complete with tennis
courts, swimming pool etc on a VIRGIN WOODED AREA within the Holwood Estate, Keston that threatens the Green Belt.
The 12 dwellings that would be built on virgin green belt land would be in contravention of both GREEN BELT POLICY and Bromley's UNITARY DEVELOPMENT PLAN
development anywhere other than on the footprint of the existing buildings would
be a clear breach of Green belt policy. It
could create a precedent for more buildings in the Green Belt which other
Developers would be quick to seize upon.
To allow development anywhere other than on the footprint of the existing buildings would be a clear breach of Green belt policy. It could create a precedent for more buildings in the Green Belt which other Developers would be quick to seize upon.
Bromley's Green Belt must be preserved.
The consequences of loosing this part of the Green Belt could be devastating for us all and future generations.
