PTE is part of the competition-winning team which has been chosen to design a new mixed tenure housing development at Lymington Fields in the Chadwell Heath area of Barking and Dagenham. The 20-acre site is one of the first to be released by the Mayor of London as part of his drive to unlock development on public sector land.
Our scheme will create 362 new homes on the site of the old Barking Technical College, including 213 homes for private sale, 104 homes for affordable rent and 45 homes for shared ownership through housing provider Home Group. All homes will meet the Mayor’s new London Plan standards and Level 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes.
The scheme also includes a two-form-entry primary school at the centre of the site, overlooking the new central square and forming a community hub at the heart of the development.
The scheme will start on site at the end of 2013 with the first phase of housing completing in 2016.
Carl Vann, Director at PTE said ‘We have worked hard with Lovell and the design team to develop integrated residential neighbourhoods which have individual character and identity. The design approach avoids suburban sprawl in favour of a mixture of tree-lined avenues, terraces, mews streets and courts and a variety of innovative and flexible house types appropriate to the local area and market.’
