Bassetts Campus is a former residential facility for people with learning disabilities, located in the London Borough of Bromley.
In June 2015 NHS Property Services announced that it had completed the sale of this site to housing developer London Square. It is now for the purchasers to take forward plans for redeveloping the site and this web page is closed for any further updates.

The site formerly housed residential accommodation for people with learning disabilities. However, services had gradually moved to other locations and the site had been empty since November 2013.
NHS Property Services is mandated to secure best value for the NHS, the taxpayer and the local community from the sale or redevelopment of any surplus land and property.
We were proposing to market the site to developers with the benefit of outline planning permission for approximately 100 new homes, to maximise its value. All money raised from the sale will be reinvested into the health estate.
Applying for outline planning permission allowed us to work with residents to set some initial parameters for the development, such as the height of buildings and provision for car parking. We wrote to the 200 households closest to the site, as well as issuing leaflets to a further 6,000 homes and working with the local newspaper to run an article about the plans. A drop-in session at the village hall was attended by nearly 100 local residents to discuss the proposals and give their feedback.
Below, you can read the full details of our application, which was submitted to the London Borough of Bromley in late 2014.
As well as up to 100 new homes, the initial outline plans included:
The site was purchased while the planning process was under way, so it is now for the new owners of Bassetts Campus to take forward the planning work and seek approval from the Council for a detailed scheme of their own design.
