Library Gardens Development

Countryside Properties have submitted a full planning application in respect of the proposed development at Library Gardens.

Some months SRA raised objections to the proposed grant of a long lease to Countryside when no planning application had been made and there had been no apparent competition.

The maximum height of the blocks of flats will be 15 storeys and there will be 410 residential units. In addition there will be businesses at ground floor level and basement parking.

The development would mean the disappearance of Ethelbert Close.

The SRA committee will discuss the proposals at its July meeting. Meanwhile Bromley Civic Society has circulated its view of the proposals which can be read here

Water me Please

In the prolonged period of hot weather it is clear that some of the trees that line Shortlands streets ae suffering. 


The limited resources that the council have for watering street trees cannot cope with this, so some limited diversion from weed control has been made to stop trees dying – although this will contribute to a deterioration in the amount of weed control that the Council can manage. We have been asked to  encourage residents to water trees outside or near their homes, particularly if these are young trees, when we have prolonged rainless weather.


Please help to ensue that Shortlands remains green and pleasant!
