3000 homes will be built at Beam Park as City Hall overrules Havering Council

City Hall has today forced through an application to build up to 3000 new homes at Beam Park, after Havering Council refused permission.

London’s Deputy Mayor for Planning, Regeneration and Skills, Jules Pipe, today approved the redevelopment of the area on land straddling Havering and Barking and Dagenham.

Two schools and a new train station will also be built at Beam Park, on the site of the old Ford assembly plant.

Havering Council’s regulatory services committee had denied permission on the basis that it felt the high-rise blocks of flats being planned were too tall.

Barking and Dagenham council had approved the plan and City Hall has decided that the development will go ahead. 50 per cent of the homes will be affordable.

There will also be community facilities, retail and open spaces, as well as the new homes. 

London’s Deputy Mayor for Planning, Regeneration and Skills, Jules Pipe, said: “This is a large, very important site and these plans will deliver 3000 much-needed new homes, along with transport, schools and community facilities to help make this a liveable and attractive new neighbourhood for this part of east London.

“Having weighed up the evidence available to me and given the overall importance of the application, I have decided to grant approval.

“The wider area around Beam Park has the potential to deliver thousands of new homes and jobs, and could play a crucial role in London’s economy in the decades to come.”
