Cllr Teresa O’Neill OBE, leader of Bexley council, visited the Quarry site in Erith last week, where 96pc of the first phase of homes have now been reserved.

Cllr O’Neill and guests, including Deputy Mayor cllr John Wilkinson, enjoyed a tour of the site encompassing the first residential blocks, the new three form-entry primary school and the ecology area.

Spanning 20 hectares, The Quarry, a joint venture development between L&Q and The Anderson Group, is a collection of 600 new homes and a state-of-the-art primary school, and is being built on the former Erith quarry site.

Following the installation of low level lakes, the ecology area was completed last year, and the first phase of homes have risen from the ground, and work on Limewood Primary School has also progressed.

Cllr Teresa O’Neill said: “It is exciting to see the progress that has been made on construction at The Quarry.

“The new homes and community spaces the development will offer are a positive contribution to the future of Erith and our wider borough, and I am pleased that The Quarry will provide a great place to live for our residents and their families.”

With sustainability at its heart, the new eco-development is set to breathe new life into the disused quarry, and builds on the local ecology of the area, providing a 3.25 hectare ecology area and ecology corridor for community use.

Lucy Chitty, sales and customer services director for L&Q’s south region, said: “We are delighted that there has been such great interest in our new development in Erith.

“The Quarry will be a fantastic place to live, and we look forward to welcoming the first residents to The Quarry in the spring.”

L&Q and Anderson is offering a stamp duty contribution to put towards the last two new homes available for outright sale at The Quarry.

Both homes feature four bedrooms more than three storeys.

The second phase of homes will be launched in mid-2018.

Information regarding The Quarry’s Shared Ownership homes are also available via L&Q’s PricedIn website.
