York Rise

Proposed housing development to create much needed Bromley homes for Bromley residents – York Rise, Orpington, BR6 8PR.

The London Borough of Bromley faces high housing pressures to increase the supply of high-quality homes for the borough’s needs. The Council is committed to actively delivering and boosting housing supply within the borough.

The site at York Rise, Orpington, is a vacant plot of land located next to Orpington railway station. It is well served by the public transport services and within walking distance of the town centre. The proposed housing development at York Rise is owned by the Council and identified in the Bromley Local Plan to provide 35 homes. The Council has appointed Rivington Street Studio and specialist contractor Module-AR (M-AR) to bring the scheme forward.

We’d love to hear your views

The Council is intending to submit a planning application in the coming months and is currently consulting on the emerging design.

The design and layouts are in development; the designs so far are focused around a ‘village green’ with a children’s play area, wild planting areas, swift boxes and an existing oak tree. Due to the site’s excellent public transport links, the development will promote a low-car/low-carbon lifestyle with electric vehicle charging and plentiful bike parking, refuse and recycling areas.

The mixture of terraces and flats will be brick-faced with pitched roofs and aluminium windows. All homes will benefit from dual aspect orientation and a private balcony or a terrace.

Engagement events

As part of this process, the Council hosted two engagement events to ensure meaningful engagement with the local community, prior to the submission of a full Planning Application.
