Local Agenda 21: Blueprint for a Better Bromley


In this document, Bromley sets out its local action plan for sustainable development as part of its Local Agenda 21 initiative.


The document includes the following statements:

  • That derelict urban land will be brought back into beneficial use, and open space will be protected from development.
  • That local biodiversity will be enhanced by (among other things) creating new wildlife habitats through land management.
  • That opportunities for everyone to enjoy Bromley's green environment will be enhanced by (among other things) promoting green gardening and advocating the sympathetic management of accessible natural and semi-natural areas, including urban parks.


None of the above statements seem compatible with a commercial leisure designation of the green ridge at the head of the Park.
