Beckenham town centre improvements – still time to have your say on plans

Published Monday, 16 March 2015

There is still time to have your say on early plans for improvements to Beckenham town centre.

Consultation got underway earlier this month and runs until Friday 27 March with the concept design plans available to view online. This follows work alongside architects and key stakeholders in the area to create the plans following the allocation of funding. The £3.2 million scheme, funded in partnership with Transport for London (TfL) will improve Beckenham High Street.

“I would like to thank everyone who came along to our public exhibition in Beckenham yesterday and encourage anyone who was unable to make it to visit our website and view the plans for themselves. We are committed to improving Beckenham town centre and encouraging new investment to the historic area, which will support its future vibrancy” said Councillor Peter Morgan, Executive Councillor for Renewal and Recreation. 

The council has worked closely with local residents and community groups throughout the process of producing an improvement strategy and public realm concept designs for Beckenham High Street. The quality of the public realm would be improved by including coordinated and harmonious design, reduction of street clutter and an emphasis on the ‘village’ identity. 

The plans and consultation documents will be available for viewing and downloading at www.bromley.gov.uk/beckenhamimprovements.
