Bromley New Homes
Location: London Borough of Bromley
Client: Bromley Council
Status: Under Construction
Working in partnership with
In partnership with the London Borough of Bromley, construction will soon commence for a full turnkey project for 25 homes for tenants currently in temporary accommodation. The scheme is an exemplar for the benefits of using a volumetric build system on constrained sites, enabling a town-centre car park to be developed whilst preserving nearly 80% of the existing parking spaces, which would not have been possible using a traditional construction approach.
The scheme comprises of two terraces of residential dwellings containing 6 single storey and 19 duplex apartments, exceeding the minimum space standards in the Nationally Described Space Standards and wheelchair accessible units. Built on top of a steel frame, the local authority will be able to provide both private car parking beneath, with the remainder of the site available for public car parking. The scheme ensures high-quality design in both environmental performance and internal environment. Low carbon and sustainable housing are at the heart of the scheme with super insulation, airtightness, low energy heating systems and renewable energy technologies to complement the fabric first energy performance.
The units will be net-zero carbon.
The site is currently under construction, the car park and the recycling facilities will be closed for the duration, on completion these facilities will re-open again following completion on this Spring.

We are writing to update you of the construction works for the local housing project on Burnt Ash Lane car park, on Brindley Way.
The scheme was granted permission in July 2020 and construction has now commenced. The development will provide 25 new homes for Bromley residents. During construction, the car park will be closed to ensure the safety of the public. Following construction, a reconfigured free car park will open to the public in September.
ZED PODS are working in partnership with Bromley Council to deliver this scheme using off-site, modern methods of construction. Much of the construction work for this project will take place off-site, minimising the inconvenience to nearby residents. The houses will be built on stilts above the site, with separate private residential car parking spaces being provided underneath.
We will keep all neighbouring residents well informed at each stage of this development by providing regular updates on the works that are taking place via this website. Information will also be displayed on the site’s notice board.
We will start to install the foundation after the bank holiday weekend (6th April 2021). There will be no work on-site on either Friday the 2nd or Monday the 5th. The foundations are due to commence from the 6th.
