Changing the face of Barking town centre

We’re planning to redevelop the site of Crown House, on Cambridge Road, Barking.  Our aim is to help rejuvenate Barking town centre and build hundreds of badly needed new homes.

We plan:

  • 400 new homes – in two high rise buildings
  • shared ownership, affordable rent and market rent apartments
  • retail and commercial units – ideal for start-up businesses
  • improved environment, better access and a public square

The development will mean that the existing Crown House tower block will be demolished.  We will then build new homes on the site and on the surrounding car parks.  The Baptist Church and 26 Linton Road will remain.  If our planning application is successful, demolition work would start in February 2019 and we would aim to complete the new buildings by April 2021.

There is more information about the development here: The Crown House development

Inevitably building on this scale will cause some disruption.  But we believe that the proposals will radically improve this site, provide much-need new homes and a range of facilities and amenities that will help revitalise Barking town Centre.


But before we proceed with our planning application, we would like to hear your views.
