Huge Thames Gateway housing scheme wins green light

  • Comment
Sheppard Robson, KCAP and Maccreanor Lavington's massive Thames Gateway housing scheme, known as Barking Riverside, has been given the thumbs-up by planners.

The 140ha project, a joint venture between English Partnerships (EP) and developer Bellway, will see 10,800 new homes built on the UK's largest brownfield zone over 25 years.

The scheme will also include a 2km corridor to the Thames riverfront, shopping centres, two primary schools and a secondary school. At least 40 per cent of the site will be designated open space.

The winning team beat Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, Broadway Malyan, and Schmidt Hammer Lassen with East to secure the deal.

Detailed designs for the first two stages, comprising 4,000 homes, will be submitted to London Thames Gateway Development Corporation in the next six months.

Commenting on the scheme, Bellway director Roger Bond said: 'This agreement marks the start of the delivery phase at Barking Riverside following a vital period of negotiation with the planning authority.'
