Have your say on the future of our town centres

Bexley’s new Town Centres Strategy looks at how the centres can continue to successfully meet the needs of local people, visitors and businesses.


The strategy is designed to provide a framework for the development and management of Bexley’s town centres over the next five years, to help guide the activity of the Council and key partners in enhancing their vibrancy and economic success.


It is focused on the five larger town centres: Bexleyheath, Crayford, Erith, Sidcup and Welling. These are home to the most jobs and are also the most vulnerable to trends involving national retailers.  


The online survey is available at Bexley Town Centre Strategy Feedback.


A copy of the strategy and the abridged strategies relating to each centre are available as PDFs below -
