David Evennett, MP for Bexleyheath and Crayford, attended a special event to mark the beginning of demolition works on the Larner Road estate on Friday morning.
After the demolition began, Orbit South and the building contractor Wates launched the new name of the estate – Erith Park.
Mr Evennett said “Today marks a new beginning for the area. Erith Park is an exciting project that will bring much needed new flats and houses to the area and create a vibrant new community. I very much look forward to the completion of the building works and welcoming the first new residents in 2015.”
He also took the time to speak to local residents about the project and local issues (pictured).
