Developers say they are keen to hear from residents

Proposals to build 500 apartments at the heart of Bexleyheath will go on public display this weekend.

Developers Bellway Homes are looking to build a seven-storey apartment block on the abandoned grounds of the former civic centre.

If built, the block would also feature shopping space including a Sports Direct store.

The site on Highland Road has laid empty since the council moved to Watling Street and Tesco pulled out of building a supermarket in its place.

A public exhibition on proposals will begin on Saturday, October 7, from 11am until 3pm.

It will be based opposite the Sainsbury’s entrance, on the corner of Broadway and Highland Road.

The exhibition will also be available to view on Monday, October 9 from 4pm to 8pm.

Representatives from Bellway and members of the project team will be present at the exhibition to explain initial proposals and answer questions.

A planning application is expected to be submitted in early November.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
