New flats and shops plan in Erith

Plans have been submitted for a block of flats and commercial units at Northumberland Heath.

The site at 19 Belmont Road facing Becton Place currently houses a single story structure.

According to the planning application:

“The existing premises has been vacant since January 2020. Its previous use was as a child daycare facility open from 07:00 to 18:30 with an outside space for play and activities. The use generated noise at certain times of the day and contributed to traffic congestion as a result of parents picking up and dropping off often at peak times. The proposed combination of retail with residential will have neither of these amenity disbenefits going forward.”

Running a site takes much time and cost a lot of money. Adverts are far from enough to cover it and my rent.
