The Greater Erith programme is made up of a number of different projects in and around the town centre which all contribute to enhancing the unique aspects of the town, supporting businesses and improving the environment.

Improvements to Pier Road, the reuse of 66-68 Pier Road and 70 Pier Road, the creation of a new public space at Pier Square and a programme of events on the Pier all aim to create a stronger link between the Pier and the heart of the town centre.

The programme is also improving the arrival in the town from the station through re-landscaping the area around the station, refurbishing the Carnegie Library and improving walking and cycling routes through the town.

One of the unique aspects of Erith, the town’s relationship to the river, is being improved through the renovation of Riverside Gardens, improvements to Erith High Street, the refurbishment of Pier Square and events on the Pier.

The town’s heritage is being protected through the refurbishment of the Carnegie Library and the re-use of 70 Pier Road. These projects, together with the re-use of 66-68 Pier Road and units within the Riverside Shopping Centre are creating a wider mix of uses in the town to both provide choice to local people and attract visitors.

Visit the individual project pages below to find out more about them and see information about the ongoing and completed projects.
