The latest issue of Invest Bromley, the development and regeneration magazine about the south London borough, has been published.
The fourth edition of the business publication explores how Bromley’s town centres are changing. Housing zone status was granted to the borough in March, meaning it is set to receive £27.1 million in direct grants and soft loans, supporting the council’s plans to deliver up to 1,820 homes in the area.
Orpington, where the Business Improvement District was established in 2013, has seen new stores, restaurants and a cinema developed and is a major focus of the publicaiton. The fourth issue also focuses on Beckenham, where work is to start on a £4.1 million scheme to improve the high street.
Additionaly, the magazine investigates iconic musician David Bowie’s connections with Beckenham during his early life and career.
Other sections are dedicated to Bromley College Group London, which was launched in August 2016 following the merge of Bromley College and Bexley College, and to the plans to open a museum to celebrate the history of Biggin Hill Airport, used as an RAF base in the second world war.
"Bromley has become one of the most sought-after locations for first-time buyers,” said editor Maria Shahid. “In the fourth issue of Invest Bromley we look at plans to create more homes in the town centre, as well as the borough's historic links with the Battle of Britain and the council's efforts to mark one of its most famous residents, David Bowie."
The fourth issue of Invest Bromley will be available to read online next week.
