Green light for 1,600-home East London estate scheme
Ambitious plans for the vast renewal of an East London 1960s housing estate have got the go-ahead.
Barking and Dagenham Council has approved plans for the 1,575 home regeneration scheme on the eastern side of the 1960’s Gascoigne Estate
The proposals, designed by architects Levitt Bernstein and Allies & Morrison, include homes ranging from one to four bedrooms as well as several communal squares and gardens, a new medical centre and shops.
In the later stages of the project a new secondary school and a primary school will be built.
The first phase of construction is anticipated to commence in early 2015. This will deliver 420 homes in six block and a new medical centre.
