Plans to demolish the former Havering College of Further and Higher Education in Harold Hill are expected to be approved on Thursday.

The Quarles Campus, in Tring Gardens, was sold to Havering Council in 2017 and closed its doors for good last August. 

One of the council’s development companies is now proposing to replace the site with 78 new houses and 42 flats. 

All of the properties will be between 2 and 3.5 storeys high and 37 per cent of them will be classified as affordable. 

There will also be parking spaces for cars and bikes as well as a play area and public open space.  

The closure of the former education facility has raised concerns about the number of school places available in Havering. 

In some areas of the borough, there are not enough places to meet demand. 

As part of the scheme, the council’s development company would have to help create an additional 72 school places, the majority of which would be for early years and primary school pupils. 

Around £150,000 is also going to be spent on replacing the sports pitch at the Quarles Campus with a new one at Brittons Academy.

A further £50,000 will go towards a new zebra crossing in Whitchurch Road and implementing a controlled parking zone. 

Havering Council’s Strategic Planning Committee is expected to vote on the proposals on Thursday evening.
