One of the capital’s leading housing associations has been chosen as the preferred bidder to deliver 700 new homes within the borough.

Notting Hill Housing – which has offices in Hammersmith, Vauxhall and Kings Cross – is in the running to create the homes in the Rainham and Beam Park housing zone.

The mixed tenure development aims to provide affordable housing including properties for shared ownership, market sale and private rent.

Notting Hill chief executive, Kate Davies said: “The transformation of Rainham and Beam Park is a major strategic initiative for Havering Council and we are very pleased and excited to be working with them to help achieve their vision for the area.

“That we are also able to increase the amount of affordable housing provided in this new suburb is a boost for everyone involved in the project, as well as the extra families who will benefit from high quality housing within their budget.”

Council chief executive, Andrew Blake-Herbert added: “This area is one of the last locations in London where truly affordable houses can be built for local people looking to settle and raise their families, alongside apartments and starter homes.

“Our ambition, that I know Notting Hill Housing share, is to create quality homes alongside a series of green open spaces that will help integrate existing communities and the new developments, and provide easy access to the brand new Beam Park rail station.”

The sites sit along the A1306, and are close to a proposed new rail station, school, nursery and medical centre.
