Demolition work has begun on part of the Gascoigne Estate, which will see more than 200 new homes built by 2022.

The £55 million scheme, on the west side of the estate in Abbey Road, will see 89 one-bedroom, 88 two-bedroom and 24 three-bedroom properties built.

Rent in the homes start from £137 per week, with 60 per cent of the properties affordable.

Paul Nicholls, from Wates Residential, said: “We’re delighted to have begun the first stage of demolition on this exciting flagship project, delivering more than 200 homes for people in Barking.

“Together with our partners, we will deliver new high-quality homes and create a lasting legacy for the whole community through our investment in education, skills and training because we believe that everyone deserves a great place to live.”

The designs include plans to be more environmentally friendly by installing electric car charging points, more than 360 new bicycle parking spaces, and solar panels.
