A former social club will be the site for the development of a new housing scheme in Hornchurch.

Plans to build 44 homes for rent on the former Nalgo Social Club site, 75 North Street, have been revealed yesterday by Havering Council’s new housing company, Mercury Land Holdings.

The plans will be shortly opened for consultation and residents will be able to view the proposals and provide feedback on the planning application, which will be submitted early this year.

The Nalgo Social Club closed in 2013, when it was served notice by the council after being run by supporters for 25 years.

The scheme is aimed to deliver high-quality accommodation for young people and families in the borough and will be accompanied by other potential developments, including in Como Street, Romford.

Residents are invited to take part in the consultation event on January 13, from 4pm to 7pm at Hornchurch library, North Street, and plans will be available to view until January 20.

A spokesman for the housing company said: “We very much welcome feedback from local residents on proposals for the former Nalgo site. This is a great opportunity for residents to tell us what they think about plans improve their local area.”

The Mercury Land Holdings was set-up to generate a financial return to the council by operating a business and help increase the supply of a mix of good quality housing in terms of type, size and tenure.
