Bromley North Village is the home of many small and independent businesses. Although the area has recently benefited from public-realm improvement works, it still suffers from isolation from the main centre of shopping activity in the town and has yet to achieve a clearly defined sense of character or brand.
This project will revitalise the area’s economy, provide a sense of identity and historical context for those visiting, working and living locally and will physically improve the public realm. We have a long-term and large-scale vision to put Bromley North Village on the map as an attractive visitor destination for a broad section of the community and we are seeking to kick-start this vision with this initial programme of art works.
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Bromley North Village is the historical core of Bromley town – a recognised conservation area with numerous Victorian listed buildings and many independent businesses, restaurants and shops. There are a number of “creative” businesses in the area including music, dance and art supply shops, tattoo parlours and recording studios as well as a small theatre and a number of part-time live music venues.
The project will increase footfall to the area in general, encourage visitors to return to the Village and attract new customers, especially families, to the area. The project will help revitalise the local economy, extend the time that people choose to stay in the Bromley North area, promote the opportunities for future evening economy projects, improve the visual visitor experience and begin to build local a local identity for the area as a natural home for creative and artistic activities and businesses.
Steps to get it done:
This project has full support from the Local Authority’s Regeneration and Town Centre Management departments. There is wide support from the local stakeholder organisations including Bromley Civic Society, Traders Associations, Chaplaincy, Residents and Ward Counsellors. There is also permission from local freeholders regarding use of premises for installations
