Two blocks of flats planned on Erith open space

Plans have been submitted to Bexley Council to build two blocks of flats on open space in Erith at 1 – 9 And 32 Bronte Close near Northumberland Heath.

Bexley Council recently sold the land, at the junction with Wilde Road, which is public greenery.

It was one of a number of land sales by Bexley Council. Although it appears that Bexley Council themselves are behind the application, so perhaps it wasn’t sold or sold to council off-shoot Bexleyco.

Bexleyco have a Managing Director believed to be earning £145,000 per annum.

Bexley Times reported that Adam Wilkinson previously earned £365,000 from Kent County Council for a year’s work in 2010.

It also reported that he will work 3-4 days a week on an 18 month contract.

The planning reference is 17/02981/FULM. Click here to search.


As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

    Will the flats be for sale or social housing?
