The Council has adopted a Growth Strategy, which will help Bexley meet the need for new homes and jobs. It will ensure growth is managed carefully to benefit local people. It will also bring benefits to transport connectivity, economic prosperity and skills.

Publications linked to the Growth Strategy

A significant amount of work went into the preparation of the strategy.

In 2015, Bexley and the Greater London Authority (GLA) published the Direction of Travel statement (PDF 5MB),

Consultation on the Draft Growth Strategy (PDF, 8MB) was undertaken in the spring and summer of 2017, and the comments received from residents and other key stakeholders have been taken into consideration when preparing the final draft.

The Growth Strategy was adopted at Public Cabinet on 12 December 2017. The adopted text (subject to final editing and formatting), along with a summary of the public consultation, can be found on Adopting the Bexley Growth Strategy.

Next steps

The adopted strategy is the first step in updating the Council’s Local Plan documents.
