Kent House Tavern Application Going To Committee on Thursday

The planning application for the Kent House Tavern at the junction of Somerville and Thesiger Rd will be going to committee on Thursday evening at 7-00pm at Bromley Civic Centre. Officers are recommending permission for the proposed 8 one bedroom flats above the pub. The proposed retail use at the pub does not require planning consent. Councillor Kathy Bance will be there to speak to this item.

    I live on Tennyson Road and as such am not directly affected by the Kent House tavern development. However, as someone in the area who is often affected by the lack of parking, I was interested to see the parking assessment carried out for this project. It states there is 68% occupancy but as you can see from the photos provided, this area is a criss cross of junctions and it is difficult to see how they arrived at this figure given the Highway code stipulation that cars should not park opposite or within 32ft of a junction. They seem to be relying on increased parking on Thesiger Rd which is already a bottle neck.

    There is just no more room for any more cars parking in Somerville Road. If Bromley Council passes this application, it shows no respect or concern for the residents of Somerville Road or the surrounding area. Shame upon this Council!

    Absolutely agree with the two comments above. This shows a total lack of understanding and awareness on the part of Bromley Council, but only to be expected from a council that regards Penge as a 2nd class citizen. I trust that Kathy Bance will give a robust reply to this development. It should not be allowed to proceed. It is totally unsuitable for the site in question.

    It was kicked out. Thanks to Cllr Bance and those involved in registering their objections
