A partnership between Wates Residential and Orbit Group was formed in 2012 to transform the former Larner Road, a local authority owned high rise estate, into what is known as Erith Park.
The area had a poor reputation locally and was suffering from low demand. Discussions took place with the community about the estate’s future and a consensus was reached to redevelop the area as a low to mid-rise new community-led regeneration.
The first phase of the development was completed in November 2015 providing 342 new homes with a mix of affordable rent, shared ownership and market sale.
All homes were sold ahead of programme and to local buyers. A further 244 mixed-tenure homes are now being developed in phase two, with the first homes handed over in Spring 2017. The overall scheme is set for completion in Spring 2018.
Phase 3 of Erith Park – a further 310 new homes – is currently in the pre-construction stage with work expected to start on site in 2019.
