Arthur Street estate

Stage: Implementation

In Sep 2019, the Mayor approved the demolition of 262 homes on Bexley’s Arthur Street estate - to be replaced by 320, all social rent being replaced by London Affordable Rent, at a net loss of 134 ‘social’ homes

The Mayor’s planning report approving the scheme, accepts the justification made for the net loss which is that affordable housing is being built on other sites in the borough.

The scheme is being progressed with Mayoral funding by Orbit Housing Association, which has managed the borough’s social housing portfolio since the stock transfer in 1998.
