Update - 7 February 2018
The application, ref. No. 17/05229/FULL1, for the construction of 3 two bedroom dwellings (1 pair of semi-detached houses and 1 detached dwelling) with 5 associated car parking spaces, cycle parking, refuse storage and landscaping, including rearrangement of then existing car parking layout at Oaklands Court, 6 Oaklands Road, Bromley BR1 3SW has been refused for the following reasons:
  1. The proposal would result in the loss of a number of trees which are protected by a Tree Preservation Order and which contribute to the visual amenities of the area and the proposed layout and extent of the dwellings in relation to the proportions of the site, in conjunction with the loss of existing amenity space, would provide inadequate space to secure a satisfactory setting of for the development.

  2. The proposals would reduce the existing capacity for on-site car parking while increasing the parking needs of the site as a whole and in the absence of information to regarding the loss of parking spaces, the adequacy of manoeuvring space and access by larger vehicles through the undercroft, the proposal would be inadequate to meet the needs of the existing and proposed development and give rise to an undesirable increase in on-street parking in nearby roads as well as a development which would be poorly serviced.

  3. The proposal by reason of the size of the dwellings in relation to the individual plots and the existing/proposed boundaries of the site and the proportion of the site covered by buildings and hard surfaces would be out of character with and would fail to complement the pattern of development in the locality, thereby detrimental to the visual amenities of the area.
The delegation report and decision are available.

Update - 19 July 2014
We understand that the Council is currently investigating whether the locking of the new gates, putting out of action 22 car parking places, is a breach of planning condition. Further news when we get it.

Oaklands Court, 6 Oaklands Road - 14 June 2014
This is the big block of flats opposite the junction with Grasmere Road. In the last week, a fence has been built across the car park in the rear garden of this property. We have heard rumours, which we cannot substantiate, but the building of this fence would be consistent with a plan to build on the rear-most portion of the car park.
 Oaklands Court, 6 Oaklands Road
The new gates which if shut would remove access to 22 parking spaces

We will provide further information when available. In the meantime please indicate your interest by contacting us and we will e-mail any update to you.
