The first plans for a GBP 1 billion housing regeneration scheme in London have been approved, marking a significant step forward for the flagship home building programme. JV partners Havering Council and Wates Residential submitted plans for the Napier and New Plymouth House site in Rainham in May.

On 10th October, the plans were agreed at a Strategic Planning Committee meeting. The plans will now be considered by the Mayor of London before the final decision is issued. The site is one of 12 included in the ’12 Estates’ regeneration programme, which will see around 5,200 homes delivered in Havering over the next 12 to 15 years. The GBP 1 billion project will seek to double the amount of council rented accommodation and more than double the number of affordable housing.

The plans for the Napier and New Plymouth House site include 126 affordable homes, with a number earmarked for families, and a further 71 homes for private sale targeted at local buyers. All residents who have been moved off the site to enable the regeneration have been guaranteed the right to return.

The Council has committed to increasing the housing stock across the borough, and aims to deliver homes for local people whilst protecting the uniqueness of the area. The plans were subject to extensive public consultation, with more than 600 one-to-one meetings with local residents and businesses taking place across the wider regeneration project.
