Planning approved for a new Erith development

BexleyCo achieved planning consent for its Walnut Tree Depot site in Erith on 11 April 2024.

The development comprises 65 quality new 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments and a ground floor commercial unit. The development also delivers improved public realm and pedestrian links between the station and town centre.

Lucy Morris, an Associate, from Nexus Planning, said “This is the culmination of two years hard work, helping to steer this challenging brownfield site through planning and we are pleased our client, BexleyCo, has achieved another planning consent for a high quality development in a strategic location.”

Graham Ward, Managing Director of BexleyCo , said “The team have worked hard to achieve BexleyCo’s fifth planning consent and the 65 new apartments will provide much needed housing for local residents as well as contribute wider benefits to Erith.”

The London Borough of Bexley’s Cabinet Member for Growth, Cllr Cafer Munur said: “This new development will bring new homes to an area where we are working to bring further opportunities and growth for local people and businesses. I look forward to seeing work start on the site.”

Walnut Tree Depot, Stonewood Road, Erith, DA8 1RA,  joins the already consented schemes at Old Farm Place (completed), West Street (under construction), the former Sidcup Library and Lesney Park, providing over 200 new homes for local residents.
