Council ‘Call for sites’ for housing, employment and retail uses or any other use

Planning policies and housing targets have changed since Bromley Council adopted their ‘Local Plan’ in 2019.

The Local Plan includes planning policies covering a range of areas, such as housing, employment, sustainability and community uses. It also includes some site allocations which identify sites to be developed for specific uses. The local plan can be found here.

As a first step in the process of updating the Local Plan due to recent changes, the Council is undertaking a ‘Call for Sites’ exercise, which invites landowners, developers and any other parties to put forward potential development sites for allocation, for development of housing, employment and retail uses or any other uses.

Local groups may be aware of sites that would be ideally suited to be developed for housing, employment (office, retail, light industrial) and community use (including green spaces) or existing sites that need protecting and investment to reach their full potential. They may also have submitted suggestions for particular sites for the 2019 Local Plan that were not included and this may be an opportunity to raise them again. Further details on how to submit a site can be found here.
