A planning application has been approved by Bexley council for the build of 145 new homes in Erith.

Construction group, Anderson and housing association, L&Q, have been granted permission to deliver homes at the Quarry.

The proposal will include a total of 145 homes which will be made of 32 apartments and 113 “affordable” homes.

The new build will be an addition to the site creating "a collection" of more than 800 homes.

Land and planning manager, Tim Chilvers, for Anderson, said: “Today’s decision marks a real milestone for this project because it unlocks the most important and prominent part of this scheme.

“Our brief to our architects, TateHindle, was simple; create attractive buildings that contribute in a meaningful way to placemaking at the Quarry and provide for our residents the highest quality living environment.

“We are very pleased that the local planning authority has endorsed their design approach and our attention now turns to delivering on our collective vision for this gateway.”

The application will also create new retail and commercial space alongside parking and cycle storage provision.

The date for construction is still yet to be confirmed.
