Dozens of investors and developers were welcomed to the event by Leader of the London Borough of Bexley, Cllr Teresa O’Neill OBE and Chief Executive, Gill Steward, before they visited opportunity areas across the north of the borough.

The tour covered parts of Crayford, Erith, Belvedere and Thamesmead. It focused on Bexley’s nine miles of undeveloped riverfront and sites with potential for a range of regeneration projects.

After the tour, there were presentations and an opportunity to network at Hall Place, one of Bexley’s top heritage attractions.

“We were delighted with the number of people who joined us, because we are looking for partners with the skills and resources to help us deliver our plans for growth,” said Cllr O’Neill. “There is growing excitement about the borough’s potential and we will be holding further discussions with a range of people we spoke to.”

Chief Executive Gill Steward added: “We are making our expectations clear to potential partners. Our aim is to deliver growth that creates new opportunities, homes, jobs and good communities, while protecting the best of Bexley as it is today.”

The costs of the investor event were met through sponsorship from Evolve Estates, Keepmoat, Orbit and Peabody, secured with the assistance of White Label Creative.

A video promoting the opportunities that Bexley offers was shown at the event and is available on YouTube.

A model produced by Wates and Broadway Malyan highlighting potential sites in the north of the borough was shown at the event will displayed soon at the Civic Offices in Bexleyheath.
