Councillors from the London Borough of Bexley, including Council Leader Councillor Teresa O’Neill, visit The Quarry as the first phase of homes is fully reserved.
Leader of the London Borough of Bexley, Councillor Teresa O’Neill OBE recently visited The Quarry site in Erith, where 100% of the first phase of homes have now been reserved. This includes all homes available through Shared Ownership.
Councillor O’Neill and guests including Deputy Mayor Councillor John Wilkinson, enjoyed a tour of the site encompassing the first residential blocks, the new three form-entry primary school and the ecology area.
The site has progressed a great deal since Councillor O’Neill’s most recent visit last January. The ecology area was completed last year following the installation of low level lakes, and the first phase of homes have risen from the ground, offering a taster of what’s to come in later stages of development. Furthermore, work on Limewood Primary School building has started and progressed significantly since last year.
Councillor Teresa O’Neill OBE, Leader of the London Borough of Bexley said:
“It is exciting to see the progress that has been made on construction at The Quarry. The new homes and community spaces the development will offer are a positive contribution to the future of Erith and our wider borough, and I am pleased that The Quarry will provide a great place to live for our residents and their families.”
Lucy Chitty, Sales & Customer Services Director for L&Q’s South region said:
“We are delighted that there has been such great interest in our new development in Erith. The Quarry will be a fantastic place to live, and we look forward to welcoming the first residents to The Quarry in the spring.”
Spanning 20 hectares, The Quarry, a joint venture development between L&Q and The Anderson Group, is a collection of 600 new homes and a state-of-the-art primary school, and is being built on the former Erith quarry site.
With sustainability at its heart, the new eco-development is set to breathe new life into the disused quarry and builds on the local ecology of the area, providing a 3.25 hectare ecology area and ecology corridor for community use.
The second phase of homes, including further Shared Ownership properties will be launched in mid-2018. All eligible properties on the development will also be available for London Help to Buy.
