Update - 11 August 2019
The OnTheMarket and Propertylink sites advertise at 26 Hillbrow Road, Bromley BR1 4JL:

An opportunity to acquire a freehold development site to be sold with planning permission for the demolition of an existing bungalow, and erection of a contemporary scheme comprising 6 modern new build apartments and provision of 2 car parking spaces. The scheme has been designed across four blocks providing good separation, distance and privacy for future residential occupants. The property is currently in planning with Lewisham Council with a decision expected in August/September 2019. The application is policy compliant and expected to go to committee with an officers recommendation for approval. Our clients are therefore seeking offers subject to grant of planning permission.

See the brochure from Acorn Limited, apparently dated 2016.

Update - 15 June 2019
The delegation report and decision are available on Bromley planning application ref. No. 19/02144/ADJ. This is the adjoining authority consultation by Lewisham Council on the planning application for the demolition of 26 Hillbrow Road, Bromley BR1 4JL and construction of a one-storey building and 3 two-storey buildings comprising 3 one-bedroom, 1 two-bedroom and 1 three-bedroom self-contained flats, and 1 one-bedroom house, together with the provision of 2 parking spaces, cycle spaces and landscaping.

On the basis of the submitted application details, Bromley Borough Council objects to the proposal, as it would lead to an overdevelopment of the site and a harmful impact on the street scene and a shortage of on-site parking leading to additionally harmful on-street parking and adverse impacts on the residential amenities of neighbouring properties within the London Borough of Bromley. The London Borough of Bromley is not the determining authority, and it is for Lewisham Borough Council to conclude on these matters insofar as they affect land and properties in Lewisham. 

Thus the London Borough of Bromley has raised objections to the development.

A planning application, ref. No. DC/19/112020, has been made for the demolition of 26 Hillbrow Road, Bromley BR1 4JL and construction of a one-storey building and 3 two-storey buildings comprising 3 one-bedroom, 1 two-bedroom and 1 three-bedroom self-contained flats, and 1 one-bedroom house, together with the provision of 2 parking spaces, cycle spaces and landscaping.

According to the developers, the proposed development will improve the street scene on Hillbrow Road, with the exiting [sic] building in their opinion being of no architectural value and adding little to the street scene. Hillbrow Road contained a mixture of dwellings types and sizes and is not defined by one single type of dwelling. The existing property is a bungalow at the bottom of a steep driveway and has been unoccupied since October 2017.

Hillbrow Road marks the boundary of the London Borough of Lewisham’s boundary, with the London Borough of Bromley on the other side of the road. Recently Hillbrow Road has experienced some changes, with permissions granted for developments of flats opposite the site. The most recent and relevant applications relate to Upfield, which is nearly directly opposite the site, and Sunset Hill, which is adjacent to the development at Upfield. These developments are within the Borough of Bromley. However, despite not being within the same local authority, the developments have a very close physical relationship with the site at 26 Hillbrow Road.
