Plans in for next 145 homes at Erith Quarry site

An application has been submitted for the next 145 homes at Erith Quarry.

It’s the latest application for the site which will eventually comprise 849 homes – an increase of 249 from original plans for 600.

You can read about that plan to increase the overall total here.

The project is a joint venture including London and Quadrant Housing Association.

The latest plot is near the site’s main entrance and a new primary school on site. It saw outline permission for 119 homes in 2015 with numbers now revised up.

2015 plan

Parking provision is 141 parking spaces for 145 flats. The site is relatively close to Erith station albeit with an uphill walk and a solitary bus route; the 99 which runs between Woolwich and Bexleyheath.

Much parking is within a car park below housing. In order to save money, it’s not placed in a basement but ground floor level.

This ensures a blank wall faces adjacent green space.

The only render from this angle is from some distance away which helps to minimise impact.

Being able to add a few hundred more homes above and beyond 2015 levels  – and greater profit – hasn’t transferred to investment in design which works at street level alongside a park.

Commercial space is planned at street level on the other side of the plot near the new primary school.
