Barking Riverside is the largest housing development in London, with outline planning approval for 10,800 homes together with schools, open space and community facilities. It has 2km of River Thames frontage which will be opened up to residents for the first time. The new overground station will be in this area by 2021. It is the only NHS ‘designated ‘Healthy New Town’ in London.
We are also acquiring land in the Thames Road gateway to create some 3,000 new homes and 100 new jobs while also addressing the loss of employment land through new forms of workspace.
