An exhibition has offered a glimpse into early plans for a seven-storey apartment block in Bexleyheath.

Running on Saturday and Monday, Bellway put up its proposals for a 500-home development at the heart of the town centre, on the abandoned grounds of the old civic centre.

The site has laid dormant since 2014, after Bexley council moved out and Tesco purchased the land.

Once the supermarket giant pulled out of building its own store metres away from the town’s Sainsbury’s supermarket, the site was eventually swept up by Sports Direct.

The sports store hasn’t developed the land since it took over at the end of 2015, but is now in partnership with housing developers Bellway and is still expected to build a shop on the site.

Around 270 people are thought to have turned up to the exhibitions, with a planning application expected to go to Bexley council 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.
