£100m London estate rebuild approved
Published:  18 December, 2012

The London Borough of Bexley has approved plans to transform a high-rise estate in Erith with 620 low-rise houses.

Lead housing association Orbit has signed up Wates Living Space for the £100m regeneration project where work is due to start in March once the first of seven tower blocks have been torn down.

The first phase of the scheme is for 343 houses with completion by early 2015.

The plan, partly funded by the GLA, is designed to completely regenerate the Larner Road area and the five-year scheme represents one of the largest projects of its type in London.
