Glades restaurant plans on hold
25 February, 2013
A long-awaited new restaurant complex at the Glades centre in Bromley is still on pause after plans were sent to a public inquiry, News Shopper reports.
As Peach Report reported back in 2011, the £6m revamp of the centre to provide more restaurant units on its terrace has been on the table for a long time. They were rejected by the local council back in early 2012, and amended ideas for development on a smaller scale—with five units—were also rebuffed in the summer.
Capital Shopping Centres has appealed against the decision, and its plans will now be subject to a public inquiry in early May. One local councilor, Will Harmer, told This is Local London: “We have always supported the area action plan which called for a couple of restaurants or cafes in the gardens, however this development goes far beyond that.” Another councilor, Nicky Dykes, said: “After the council rightly rejected the application at development control, we are disappointed CSC has decided to appeal the decision. The development represents a huge overdevelopment.”
