The London Borough of Havering is embarking upon an ambitious regeneration programme to transform the A1306 in to a high quality residential area with upgraded infrastructure that will include a new station on the C2C line and include significant investment along the A1306 to create a linear park.
The area designated a Greater London Authority Housing Zone (more information is available from https://www.london.gov.uk/decisions/dd2065-rainham-and-beam-park-housing-zone-london-borough-havering ) will unlock over £40,000,000 of investment to achieve this vision.
Whilst the market will bring forward some of the sites in the Housing Zone independently, some sites require intervention from the London Borough Of Havering to ensure comprehensive and high quality development is achieved. Supported by significant investment secured from the GLA and TfL and its status as Housing Zone the London Borough Of Havering is seeking to bring forward sites in the area through a joint venture partnership to deliver this vision.
One of the first steps in the process is to secure planning permission on the sites along the A1306.
After various technical work and public consultation in the spring of 2017 the London Borough of Havering has now submitted planning applications following this feedback.
These applications follow earlier public consultation to design a planning framework for the wider Rainham and Beam Park area and are separate from development proposals from Countryside / L&Q and Clarion Housing Group. The Planning Framework which was adopted by Cabinet in January 2016 can be found at https://www3.havering.gov.uk/Documents/Planning/Rainham-Beam-Park-Planning-Framework.pdf
