The planning application for this project was approved in 2020 by London Borough of Bexley as part of the Greater Erith Regeneration programme, to renovate Pier Square, the area at the entrance to Erith Pier. The project will create a public area that provides space for leisure and play, where local people can better enjoy the space and its unique views of the Thames.
The newly renovated public space will also be used as a venue for community events and festivals with new landscaping, seating and lighting.
The Council has worked closely with architects BDP and landowner Morrisons on the new design for Pier Square which will transform it to a more attractive space to spend time. The designs incorporate comments made by local people during a public consultation held in April 2019.
Works are expected to start on site later this year.
