Residents urged to have their say on future of Bromley estates

Residents are being invited to share their views on multi-million pound proposals to regenerate two Bromley estates.

Riverside is asking people living in Pike Close and Calverley Close to have a say on what’s important to them.

The housing association is planning to invest millions of pounds to build warmer homes that are cheaper for customers to heat, create better open spaces for residents to enjoy, and improve the local environment.  

No firm plans have been drawn up yet and initial consultation events have taken place on both estates.

Riverside customers have been actively giving feedback on what matters to them. Top priorities so far are retaining green space, access to good public transport links, and better design and layout of buildings.

Further consultation events will be held in the Spring and Riverside customers are being invited to take part, have their say in an online survey, and join dedicated Facebook groups to ask questions and share their views.

Stephen Elliott, Riverside’s Regional Director, South and Central, said: “We are really pleased with the feedback from residents who have got involved so far to share their ideas. It’s important to us that they are part of the journey every step of the way.

“Regenerating both estates will be a long process over a number of years and this is just the beginning. This multi-million pound initiative may mean demolishing existing properties to replace them with new modern homes and improving the local environment.

“We are in the very early stages of the project and haven’t yet submitted a planning application. We want to ensure that residents have the chance to shape the future of both estates.”

There are a number of ways that Riverside customers and residents can get involved:
