Sheppard Robson has gained planning for 1500 units in Stage One and Maccreanor Lavington with KCAP have gained planning for the remaining units in Stage Two. The project includes two new schools, a community centre and wide scale public realm enhancements – marking the beginning of a transformational regeneration scheme for Barking Riverside Ltd – the 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 for Barking Riverside at Sheppard Robson, welcomes the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy in East London: “Now this project has been given the green light it has thepotential 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.”

Charles Scott, Masterplan Design Leader for Sheppard Robson, comments: “The Stage One Masterplan has been conceived as a series of spirals within the northern Buzzards Mouth Courts, which create large central courtyards. Within the southern Ripple Gardens area, kinked bands of development create varied streetscapes. The use of the spirals informs a continuous treatment for façades and ribbons of alternating terraces to create a simple asymmetric pattern. Both parts of the site contain a large percentage of family housing and a variety of public and private external space”

Construction of the first homes will begin in December 2009
