New homes on Mantle Road

Piling is underway on two new residential blocks in west Brockley

Work on the new residential development off Mantle Road on the west side of Brockley Station is proceeding at full pelt.


Site clearance has given way to work on the foundations of the two residential blocks that will be built on a plot of land running parallel with the railway line towards Crofton Park.

Meanwhile, exasperated would-be residents of Jude Court, also on Mantle Road, are left kicking their heels waiting for a project that is now almost a year late.

Just to add, the development on the old Maypole Inn site (Mantle Road) seems to be starting up again.

Hope the area receives more facilities to cater for the new families moving in.

Mantle Rd has come from poor beginnings. Remember Eternal Jerk?

I'd say it is miles better today but there is still room for improvement.

Brockley Nick said...

@Boop - such as?

The Eternal Cafe has moved to a better establishment - The Wickham Arms.

Well if they're like 'ed cpz' it will be on Coulgate st, whilst bemoaning others having the 'nerve' to park on a public street also.

I'm wondering if the freeholders for the row of shops on Mantle Road are adding an additional floor? I'd heard that they were going to apply for planning permission and guess from the height of the new scaffolding that this may have been granted.

I'm pleased that that West side looks more cared for (resurfacing of mantle road) and less deserted than before (Jude Court). Hopefully a new convenience store will open soon. Although guess the Co-op is too much to hope for!

It's going to be a Nisa, which is a convenience store chain

Aricana said...

Are you certain? Please say no.

Mantle is an anagram of Mental said...

What? did you think it would be a Waitrose?

Aricana said...

No. I was hoping it would be the Co-op.

What's wrong with Nisa?

There is a new Co-op opening in the area, though further south in the new development on St Norberts Rd where it joins Brockley Rd.

I'm scared. I don't want horrible Tesco sniffing about

"where is everybody going to park?"

For Jude Court, everyone wanting to reserve/bid for a flat had to sign a waiver confirming that they understood that there was no parking available and would not require parking.

And a Nisa, on the ground floor of the Jude Court development? Surely there's a Nisa next to the Broca Store further up Mantle Road. Any verification of this?

The Cat Man said...

I'm hoping the one next to the broca cafe will be relocating to Jude court, and the one next to the broca food market turned into a fancy pub for the area!

delusional or what?

Ed CPZ said...

@nerve, it's hardly my fault that you don't understand the local parking issues. Is ignorance bliss?I've always wondered.

nerve said...

I understand local parking issues better than you understand irony.

Ed CPZ said...

@nerve - first you misrepresent me and now this; delicious.

Nerve said...

You fail at life Ed.

I wonder if the new cul de sac for the new housing will be called "Railway Terrace" or maybe "Canal Close"?

Hmmmm said...

To be honest signs for "Canal Close" would be a magnet for childish, although ammusing, vandalism

brockley council does not respond or solve problems with council estates. it looks so poor and not safe. why they dont put green areas more and prevent crime and make more good reputation for council flats?
