Occupying a strategic position in the south east of the capital, Bromley is the largest borough in London and is known for the high quality of its living, working, historic and natural environments. Bromley values its distinctive neighbourhoods, ranging from the rural, to suburban and urban. Open countryside, protected by the Green Belt, makes up over half the borough with the majority of population concentrated in the northern part of the borough.
Bromley’s historical development has played an important part in establishing its character, which is reflected in 47 Conservation Areas and a significant number of statutory listed and locally listed buildings, which along with high quality new development contributes to civic pride and wellbeing. The overriding vision for Bromley, is to support opportunities for sustainable growth, whilst ensuring that the existing character and identity of Bromley is enhanced and retained. The Council aims to create ‘a fantastic place to live and work, where everyone can lead healthy, safe and independent lives.
