Homes approved on former allotment site

Slade Green affordable housing site wedged next to curved loop line track

Bexley Council have approved almost 50 homes on a former allotment site in Slade Green.

Plans were previously covered on this site back in April, with Orbit Housing Association behind the scheme along with Urban and Rural. It is planned that 100 per cent will be “affordable”.

The site is awkwardly placed beside a curve linking the Woolwich and Bexleyheath railway lines which could ensure a noisy experience. Living by straight track is generally fine but curved is sometimes another matter.

Whilst most “loop” trains currently do noth use this curve instead using the curve to the Sidcup line, that will change when Crossrail opens and a two trains per hour service from the Bexleyheath line will operate to Abbey Wood to connect with Crossrail.

Arthur Street estate is to be flattened

It is planned that those moving from the Arthur Street estate will move here. Arthur Street is to be demolished with new homes built on site.
