Local people can meet the architects who are looking at design options for 70 Pier Road, Erith, and have their say, at two consultation events.
They will be held on Saturday 8 February from 10am to 2pm and on Tuesday 11 February from 3pm to 7pm at the public library on Erith High Street.
The events follow the Council’s successful bid for further funding from the Mayor of London’s Good Growth Fund. Following a competitive tender process, Haworth Tompkins Architects were chosen to develop concept designs for 70 Pier Road, that ensure the locally listed building is restored and preserved for the long-term.
The designs aim to enhance the heritage of the building while providing new office space and residential units in the heart of the town centre. They include a new extension that aims to complement the existing building. The design provides 600 square metres of office space, 16 residential units and a courtyard.
Cllr Louie French, Bexley’s Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Growth said:
“The support of the local community is essential to help Erith become a vibrant riverside town again. It’s important to us that we get the input of local people at an early stage and ensure the improvements benefit everyone’.
