The joint scheme was approved in July
After closing last year, plans to build on Havering College’s former Quarles Campus site were submitted by Mercury Land Holdings, Havering Council’s development company, and Bellway London Partnerships.
The joint scheme includes 78 houses and 42 apartments across the nine-acre site.
Members of Havering Council’s strategic planning committee approved the scheme on Thursday, 15 July, subject to the finalisation of a planning agreement and conditions.
Leader of Havering Council, Councillor Damian White said: “We are delighted to deliver this development in partnership with Mercury Land Holdings and Bellway.
“This scheme supports our ambition to deliver much needed housing in the borough which gives residents more choice and flexibility in the Havering housing market.”
Bellway will provide 60 homes on its development, which will be known as Roe Wood Park, within the wider scheme.
The first homes at Roe Wood Park are set to be released for sale this winter.
Regional Director of Bellway London Partnerships, Bill Kenneally, said: “Following approval from the strategic planning committee, we will now be moving onto the site to begin demolition of the existing buildings and pave the way for the construction of these much-needed new homes in Havering.
“The overall neighbourhood has been designed with future residents in mind, with a large open space and play area being created to the north of the site.
“The joint scheme will include a selection of homes to suit different homebuyers on various stages of the property ladder. A total of 47 homes across the site will also be provided as affordable homes available for local people through rent or shared ownership.
“The development is also set to bring further investment into the local area, including £150,000 to be funded for the creation of a new sports pitch at The Brittons Academy, replacing the former pitch at Quarles Campus.”
