Old Farm Park, Sidcup, London Borough of Bexley
Residential scheme, 60 dwellings (30 houses and 30 flats)
Outline planning application (including a feasibility layout) – permission granted in May 2017. Subsequently BE1 proceeded to a reserved matters application, through to construction
The site lies to the north of the rail track and along a SINC – Site of Importance for Nature Conservation identified by the London Wildlife Trust to cover a wide buffer of wildlife habitat. The proposed scheme utilises the SINC as a visual amenity asset to the new dwellings. The green space of Old Farm Park to the west of the proposed residential scheme was incorporated into the design proposal as an additional amenity landscaped public open space.
The residential scheme, together with the landscaped park to the west, provide a permeable environment with improved pedestrians links.
