Green light for 1,600 home Barking housing scheme

  • Comment

Barking and Dagenham Council has approved plans for this 1,575 home regeneration scheme on the eastern side of the 1960’s Gascoigne Estate

Drawn up by Levitt Bernstein and masterplanner Allies & Morrison, the plans include a new secondary and primary school and is due for completion in 2024.

More than 50 per cent of the scheme’s homes will be affordable.

The first phase features 421 new homes in six blocks.

The architect’s view

‘The individual buildings create a new street vocabulary that, together with the public realm, define the five character areas in the first phase. The tenure blind scheme also contains commercial uses, a new medical centre and energy centre that will serve the whole development.

‘Landscaped gardens are to be provided at the heart of each housing block together with a large landscaped park that will provide a new public space and children’s play area that will serve the new Gascoigne and surrounding neighbourhoods.

‘The new Gascoigne neighbourhood will be a greener, safer environment that will transform the existing estate into an integrated, open neighbourhood that is accessible and welcoming to all.’
