Planning permission has been granted by the London Borough of Bexley, subject to Greater London Authority (GLA) and legal approval, for the final phase of the large-scale regeneration taking place at Erith Park, London.
Masterplanned and designed by architecture, urbanism and design practice Broadway Malyan, construction work is expected to begin with main contractor Wates Living Space in Spring 2015, with the first homes of the final phase ready in Summer 2017.
The scheme represents one of the largest projects of its type in London. It will include a mix of houses and low rise apartments for affordable rent, private sale and low cost home ownership. The development will also include a new community centre, a purpose built nursery and new central green space.
The London Borough of Bexley, Wates Living Space and Broadway Malyan are working in partnership with Orbit on the project.
Martin Bates, Director at Broadway Malyan, said: “This green light will see a further 244 new homes being delivered for local residents and is the result of the strong team partnership between the project partners and our masterplanning and design experts.
“It is the latest milestone in the delivery of a truly transformational project that will change lives and make a significant contribution to the Mayor’s vision for new housing in the capital.”
The second phase of the scheme proposes building 244 brand new homes, including 49 for private sale, 58 for shared ownership and 137 for affordable rent to local people, to create a truly mixed community.
Residents starting moving into homes created during phase one of the regeneration in December 2014.
