ERITH: Wates Living Space is to build a 620-house regeneration scheme in Erith, south east London for housing association Orbit.

The £128m scheme is to replace six high-rise blocks with a mix of houses and low rise apartments for rent, sale and low cost home ownership in the London Borough of Bexley.

Wates is due to start on site in March on the five-year long Larner Road project, which is being funded by the Homes & Communities Agency in one of the largest projects of its type in London.
