Planning application for redevelopment scheme approved
Riverside are pleased to announce that the Bromley planning committee voted in favour of the proposal to redevelop Pike Close.
This means the planning application has been approved and Riverside, along with construction partner – Countryside – will be able to proceed with the redevelopment of the estate.
Riverside are now working with Bromley council to finalise the legal agreement, which is linked to the planning permission, before work begins.
Riverside will be in touch over the coming weeks to invite residents to an event to meet developer partners, Countryside, and discuss the construction plan and timetable going forward.
Planning Application Submitted to Bromley Council
Following a consultation event with residents of Pike Close, where the final plans for the redevelopment were shared, Riverside are pleased to announce that a planning application has been submitted to Bromley Council.
Alongside this application, Riverside have made a separate application to the council for the demolition and safe removal of the ground and first floor parking podium linked to Burnt Ash Heights.
Subject to the council’s approval, this will be the first construction work to be carried out as part of the redevelopment of Pike Close, and is anticipated to start in spring 2022, as part of Phase 1.
Residents see final plans
Residents living on the estate got an opportunity to see the final designs being submitted to the council. A booklet showing plans and illustrations was sent to every home.Disclaimer
We have created an automatic ranking system for new-build homes in London based on several critical features around the development, like schools, parks, and transport infrastructure.
We have developed this new analytical tool to calculate the scores based on the location data. Note that AutoScore values are not set by us or anyone else – everything happens automatically.
Since our last update, we have made further progress with enabling works on the estate, ahead of start on site in the new year.
Internal works at Wells House are progressing well. The construction of the temporary car park behind Lavisham House is taking longer than we originally anticipated; we expect these works to finish in late January. Once this is complete, we will ask those of you parking at Burnt Ash Heights podium and Wells House car park to start using the new space by the agreed date.
In response to resident feedback, Countryside has arranged a temporary pedestrian access point to the main road from Burnt Ash Heights, within the Wells House car park area. This will be in place until Countryside use this space to start construction.

Developer Countryside and housing association Riverside have secured planning permission from Bromley Council for the redevelopment of the Pike Close estate in Bromley.
Designed by architects HTA, the scheme will deliver 170 new homes, including 92 affordable homes for the estate’s existing residents
The development will replace the current affordable housing with high-quality homes that meet the specific needs of existing residents, as well as build 78 additional residential homes to meet the housing need in the local area.
The first phase of construction is expected to start in Summer 2022 and the development as a whole is expected to be complete in 2031. The phasing has been planned so that existing residents only need to move once.
The planning approval comes after five years of conversation and interaction with Pike Close residents, who voted overwhelmingly in favour of redevelopment in May 2019. Following the successful ballot result, Countryside and Riverside collaborated with residents, the London Borough of Bromley, and the local community to improve the scheme's design, holding over 18 public consultation events as part of the partners' commitment to inclusive design prior to planning submission.
Andrew Usher, Managing Director, South London, Countryside, commented: “Following the residents ballot approval for the regeneration in 2019, we have worked tirelessly with residents, the council and local community to design a scheme that delivers for everyone, and so we are thrilled our plans have been unanimously approved.
“The redevelopment of the Pike Close estate is a fantastic opportunity to deliver a significant number of new, high-quality homes for local residents, creating a vastly improved neighbourhood and integrating existing and new communities. We have put the community at the heart of these plans and so we are truly excited to be able to commence construction in Summer 2022.”
Nathan Gravesande, Development Director, Riverside, added: “We are pleased that the redevelopment of Pike Close is commencing this year so that we can realise our vision of creating homes that are up to the high standard our residents deserve, and homes which are fit for the future. We have listened closely to what our customers have told us and are delighted to be moving forward with this exciting joint vision for the estate.”
