Permission granted for more homes at The Quarry, Erith

Published on 06/01/2022

L&Q and Anderson have been granted permission by The London Borough of Bexley to deliver the next phase of homes at the award-winning regeneration project The Quarry, in Erith, south east London.

The new phase, designed by renowned architects Tate Hindle, will deliver a total of 145 new homes, comprising 32 apartments for outright sale and 113 affordable homes, for rent and Shared Ownership. The homes will form part of The Quarry, a landmark development being delivered by L&Q and Anderson, which is creating a collection of more than 800 homes on the site of a disused quarry.

Acting as the gateway to The Quarry, the new phase will be located adjacent to a new state-of-the-art primary school, also being delivered as part of the award-winning project. The phase will also create 540 square metres of new retail and commercial space, parking and cycle storage provision, significant landscaped open space, and increased connectivity to the wider masterplan.

Tim Chilvers, Land & Planning Manager for Anderson, said:

“Today’s decision marks a real milestone for this project because it unlocks the most important and prominent part of this scheme. Our brief to our architects, TateHindle, was simple; create attractive buildings that contribute in a meaningful way to placemaking at The Quarry, and provide for our residents the highest quality living environment. We are very pleased that the local planning authority has endorsed their design approach and our attention now turns to delivering on our collective vision for this gateway.”

Neil Davis, Director of Delivery for L&Q, said:

“We are pleased to be working alongside our joint venture partners Anderson and the London Borough of Bexley to deliver new homes at The Quarry. This is a particularly significant phase at The Quarry, which will deliver a high proportion of affordable homes – furthering our commitment to creating much needed homes for local people here in Bexley.”

Mike Jamieson, Director at TateHindle, said:

“We’re incredibly excited that permission has been granted for 145 homes at The Quarry, breathing new life into this important site. Our design for the four apartment buildings aims to knit seamlessly into the hillside, creating high quality homes for a vibrant new community in an ecologically-focussed setting.”
