Building work is under way at a new £78.4 million property development in London which is part of the city’s major housing programme and one of the largest regeneration projects in the east of the city. The Lymington Fields housing development is set to provide 418 new homes in a former gravel pit and landfill site in Dagenham on land that has been released under Mayor Boris Johnson’s plans to release public land for housing.
Boris Johnson said:
“This is one of the largest regeneration projects ever seen in Dagenham and will transform this site into hundreds of much needed new low-cost homes. This former gravel pit is part of thousands of acres of land I’m releasing to double the number of homes being built for hardworking Londoners and ease demand for more good quality homes.”
