Massive Thames Gateway housing development rubber stamped

Sheppard Robson, in partnership with Maccreanor Lavington and KCAP, have received planning for the first 4,000 homes of the £1.9 billion regeneration of Barking Riverside in the Thames Gateway

The project is the largest housing development being planned for the Thames Gateway and will be divided into two stages. Sheppard Robson has gained planning for 1,500 units in Stage One and Maccreanor Lavington with KCAP have gained planning for the remaining units in Stage Two. 

The proposals, which also include two new schools, a community centre and landscaping by Gustafson Porter, are backed by a joint venture between Bellway Homes and the Homes Communities Agency (HCA).

The plans submitted to the London Thames Gateway Development Corporation (LTGDC), proposed emphasising ‘wide open spaces’ and ‘high quality family housing’.

Alan Shingler, project partner at Sheppard Robson, said: ‘Now this project has been given the green light it has the potential to be used as a blueprint for sustainable communities of the future. The scheme is set within a strategic urban landscape and ecology plan, which carefully integrates with the built environment’.

Construction of the first homes will begin in December 2009.
