New homes are set to open in the spring

A development built in an abandoned quarry drew in hundreds at the weekend, as part of an open day.

Families were invited to The Quarry in Erith on Saturday to take a look at the site where 600 homes are expected to be built.

Developers from L&Q and the Anderson Group were on hand to meet and greet locals, answering any queries they had.

Bexley councillors Linda Bailey and Teresa O’Neill were both at site, along with Erith MP Teresa Pearce.

“We’re thrilled to be delivering this exciting eco-development of up to 600 new homes and a state-of-the-art primary school for the people of Erith,” commented Cathy Lloyd from L&Q.

She added: “The fun day was a great way to welcome the community to The Quarry and talk to people about everything this exceptional development will have to offer.

Erith quarry has played an important role in the lives of local people for many years and we are pleased to be involved with the next chapter of its history.”
