The London Borough of Bexley has a proud history at the heart of the capital’s evolution and gateway to Kent. With London’s growth moving outwards, the borough is entering an exciting new period and the Council has published ambitious plans to harness the benefits of good growth for existing and new residents and businesses.
This includes regeneration, primarily along the River Thames, to create 31,000 homes and 17,500 jobs with new infrastructure including an extended Elizabeth Line from Abbey Wood to Ebbsfleet. The area has the potential to be an exemplar, 21st century suburb.
London’s economy continues to grow, with much of that growth now moving outwards, especially to the east of the capital. The London Borough of Bexley is seeking to capture and manage that growth and the opportunities it creates. The implementation of the Council’s Growth Strategy will be a core activity for BexleyCo over coming years, in particular regeneration along Bexley’s Riverside supported by new infrastructure.
