After watching 24 hours in police custody last night about the doctor and the fraudulent insurance claim I was reminded to update this thread.

A number of heavy decorative metal castings, which were recently removed from Crystal Palace Park, may have been dumped locally. The panels are rectangular, approximately 5 foot by 1 foot and have a design of joined circles which run the length of the panels. If anyone has stumbled across these in t...

Re: The Haven & Rookstone redevelopment

Just a reminder that that date for submitting any comments on this new planning proposal for 46 dwellings is Tuesday 16th December. There is concern that although there are fewer dwellings overall, all the new buildings and the blocks in particular (in Lawrie Park Crescent and CP Park Road) will be ...

Re: The Haven & Rookstone redevelopment

Thank you Stuart for your reply. All valid concerns but unfortunately only planning concerns may be voiced in any objection. All those following this should know that the final dates for comments to the council have been changed. Due to signage not being placed correctly around the site boundary, th...

Re: The Haven & Rookstone redevelopment

I will try to get some details up when I have some more time. One of the problems with a development of this scale is that the application submitted differs somewhat from the original proposal. The detail supplied is overwhelming and most people would be happy with a basic model which they could use...

Re: The Haven & Rookstone redevelopment

The planning aplication has now been submitted by Kitewood and it will be available to view on the Bromley planning webpage in the next few days. I will try to get a link up unless someone beats me to it. It will be interesting to see what the developer has done to the plans since they were first pr...

Re: The Haven & Rookstone redevelopment

Hi Annie, Yes,it is very confusing. There is no key provided for the colours on the plan. All I can add is that the Rookstone building will be demolished and a three storey block put on its footprint. The Haven site will be completely developed with two integrated blocks and an avenue in between The...

Re: The Haven & Rookstone redevelopment

Please remember, this was a fully staffed care home for the elderly and a children's care home up until approximately a year ago... It is disappointing that there is no value placed on these type of services.The Salvation Army is letting this site degrade to the extent that any development will be w...

Re: The Haven & Rookstone redevelopment

Hello. The 'Community Infrastructure Levy' is a tax applied to developments by the borough council. This is a 'pot' of money used for infrastructure development wherever the council sees fit. There is no obligation to use the money around the development site.

Re: The Haven & Rookstone redevelopment

It is hard to say about the utilities. The developers must have done the research as part of the planning process. It is dealt with by the 'Community Infrastructure Levy', a tax applied to the development, according to councillor Papworth. It carries no weight in a planning application. The car park...
