Proposed addition to the Local List: Erith Town Hall

This consultation is now closed.

Erith Town Hall, Walnut Tree Road, Erith, DA8 1TL has been nominated as an addition to the Local List, which currently comprises approximately 400 entries. 

Erith Town Hall opened on 2 June 1932 and is of historic importance locally in that it provided services for the locality as part of the Erith Borough Council (and formerly Erith Urban District Council). 

Erith Town Hall remains an attractive and prominent landmark building located within Erith Town Centre and retains the original Council Chamber. The building is the only remaining purpose-built Town Hall within the borough. It is currently utilised for some of the statutory functions which are provided by the London Borough of Bexley.

The Council is seeking your opinion on whether the Erith Town Hall should be added to the Local List. The Council is also seeking any information you may hold about the building and its history. Historical records including photographs are particularly welcome.
