York Rise

Proposed housing development to create much needed Bromley homes for Bromley residents, at 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 site is owned by the Council and identified in the Bromley Local Plan to provide 35 new homes. The Council has appointed Rivington Street Studio and specialist contractor Module-AR (M-AR) to bring the scheme forward.

The design is 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 facilities.

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.

Following community engagement, the scheme designs have been updated and submitted for Planning consent.  Further details of the proposals are available on the Bromley Council Planning website.
