New school and homes

After securing planning consent in 2015, the Anderson Group is working in partnership with London & Quadrant to deliver a new three-form-entry primary school for 630 children, privately funded and enabled by the construction and sale of 600 much-needed new homes.

From the outset, the Anderson Group worked with the local community and key stakeholders to ensure that the development was in line with their aspirations. In this, the 12-acre ecology area will promote the well-being and longevity of local residents whilst preserving the various protected animal species found in the vicinity.

Again, delivery is key. For Anderson Group, the building of the Lime Wood Free School is an opportunity for children across Bexley to thrive. The first students will enter the school in September 2019.

The local council has praised Anderson Group for the way in which we work in partnership with them and listen to what community groups have to say.

  • Translocation of various protected species including newts, lizards and slow worms
  • Site removal of Japanese Knotweed, including treatment of 100,000m3 of soil

SCHEME BENEFITS

  • Provision of a range of family housing delivering 600 new homes within six years
  • Integrating the development within the existing environment providing for a 10 acre ecological park and retention of 6 acres of existing woodland belt
