Putting Erith on the map

Designers Europa and architects Pollard Thomas Edwards have been appointed by London Borough of Bexley to improve the signage in Erith.

There are several positive signage and public art features in Erith, but some existing signage is inconsistent or out of date. The proposed changes will aim to enhance the town’s relationship with the river, support heritage assets, and improve the experience of walking and cycling around the town centre.

Europa have experience designing signage for places such as Thamesmead, Walthamstow and Harrow. They will work alongside Pollard Thomas Edwards who are providing urban design expertise to identify opportunities for signage.

The Council would like your views on what you think are the landmarks that should be highlighted and the signage that is needed, which will be used to inform the designs.

A series of workshops and drop-in sessions will take place in March 2023. Keep an eye on www.greatererith.com or follow us @greatererith to find more details on these nearer the time.

The project is funded by Transport for London. The improvements will be delivered in stages through the Greater Erith Regeneration Programme, which aims to enhance the unique aspects of the town, support businesses and improve the environment.
