Bromley North Village

Disability Voice are holding an open meeting on 23rd May from 10:15 to 12:15 to talk about improvements to Bromley North Village,

The first half of the meeting will focus on the proposed alterations to Bromley North Village, that is the area around Market Square, High Street North and East Street. The aim of these works is to re-vitalise this part of Bromley with modernised shop fronts, pedestrian walkways, crossings and increased accessibility.

The consultants, Studio Egret West , will be talking about the proposals and there will be visual displays showing what the area will look like. This is a good opportunity to put your views across to ensure the improvements really do benefit disabled people and enhance accessibility within and around this area.

There will be a break for refreshments followed by a business meeting to which we hope all will stay and find our how Disability Voice Bromley works and what the main issues are for disabled residents at the moment.
