Plans to build three blocks of flats near Dagenham Dock railway station have been approved. 

Developer Inland Homes is going to create 380 new homes near the GSR storage site in Chequers Lane. The designs show 103 of them will be used to provide affordable housing in the borough. 

Around 930sqm of space will also be used for shops, businesses and community events. 

A spokesperson for the developer said the project will provide a “new gateway to the area” and will act as a “catalyst for the regeneration of South Dagenham”.

Inland Homes also intend to regenerate the area, create a new public square and undertake highway improvements.  

Lorry drivers have been reassured they will still be able to enter the nearby Breedons Cement site via Chequers Lane. 

The developer is due to sign a Section 106 planning agreement soon and construction will begin in 2022. 

“We are delighted to have received planning approval for this important scheme which is set not only to deliver much needed new homes to the Borough but act as a catalyst for the regeneration of the whole of South Dagenham,” said Chief Executive Stephen Wicks.

“Inland has worked closely with the Borough and local landowners on our plans for the site and the approval.”

This is the second scheme the company has received approval for in the borough, with 325 homes being built in Merrielands through Inland Partnerships and on behalf of Clarion Housing Group. 

Inland Homes has also submitted two further planning applications for 364 units and around 2,500sqm of commercial space across the two sites. A decision on those applications is expected in early 2022.
