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.”

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

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.
