Project overview

The Green Belt site comprises approximately 40 hectares of agricultural land to the east of St Mary Cray, Orpington, located within the London Borough of Bromley.  Well situated, adjacent to the existing St Mary Cray recreation ground and the local primary school, the site has particularly good local connections to a range of facilities. These include a mainline railway station, as well as retail, employment and education opportunities.

The site falls within the Cray Valley Renewal Area, one of five identified areas within the Bromley local plan, which seeks to maximise opportunities for enhancement and improvement. The site has capacity for between 800 and 1,000 dwellings, alongside education and community facilities with enhanced landscaping and green infrastructure.

Project progress

The site will be promoted through the forthcoming Local Plan Review for mixed-use, residential-led development. The goal is to create a high-quality site with placemaking and legacy at the heart of the promotion.

The site is located in Orpington, London Borough of Bromley.
