The next phase of development at Erith Quarry is well underway as 145 homes rise.
Erith Quarry has seen a slow build out rate over recent years, though developers gained permission to increase overall housing totals to 850 back in February 2021.
That was an increase from previously approved 600 homes, with 145 set to be built in blocks to the north of the site.
Developer Anderson and housing association L&Q are behind the project.
New flats are situated close to a new primary school set to open in September 2023 and near bus routes such as the 180, which was recently extended from Belvedere to serve the development.
The 180 links to Abbey Wood Elizabeth line station, though Erith station is the closest to the site.
However Thameslink services fail to call at the station and Southeastern’s recent service cuts at the behest of government leave long gaps.
The 180 bus to Abbey Wood isn’t the quickest, takes an indirect route and is liable to be stuck in queues around Erith town centre.
Erith station will also see a housing development built directly next door, with plans recently submitted and covered here.
Bexley Council’s Growth Strategy foresees up to 6,000 new homes in Erith over coming years.
