Developer Weston Homes applied to redevelop the south side of the car park between Bryant Avenue and Whitelands Ways in July 2021.
The block of flats would have been between three and five stories high and consisted of 27 one bedroom, 49 two bedroom and 11 three bedroom apartments.
Havering Council rejected the application for several reasons, such as a lack of communal and parking space, yesterday.
It said the development would be “cramped” and “out of character” with the surrounding area due to its size and layout.
Weston Homes also failed to mitigate the impact of the project by making a legal agreement to put funding towards carbon reduction, employment skills and training, apprenticeships, affordable housing and a residential travel plan.
The developer has six months to appeal the decision.
