“Romford town centre is already one of London and the South East’s largest retail and shopping hubs, more than holding its own against the likes of Bluewater and Lakeside.

“It also has a thriving nightlife, good transport links and a large catchment area, extending from Central London to Essex as well as the vibrant shopping centre, famous market, good schools and a wide choice of attractive housing from Edwardian, to new build properties.”
