Havering Council has approved this new timber-framed building designed by London-based practice DK-CM as part of the ongoing regeneration of Romford’s historic market place

Described as a new civic and commercial building, the Market House scheme will be partially open at ground level with an open terrace on its first floor and will house a café and restaurant as well as a room providing facilities for market traders.

As part of the project DK-CM has also worked with highways experts Project Centre on plans to permanently pedestrianised and open up an area of the town’s Market Place in front of St Edward’s Church.

John Burton of Urban Space Management, a firm that specialises in work on markets and has been involved with the project, said: ‘Making this exciting building and creating an area around it that can be used for activities any day of the week will be a really beneficial element to the future of Romford Market.

’The aim is to attract people to the market with family friendly activities both inside the building and around it.’

Work on the new scheme, which is part funded through an investment programme backed by Havering Council in partnership with the Mayor of London, is expected to begin this Spring.
