Demolition starts on phase two of Bouygues Development's London Road redevelopment, which has been given planning permission.
The scheme will develop a new Asda store for Barking town centre, and forms part of Barking & Dagenham’s £45 million redevelopment of London Road.
The overall project also includes 100 private apartments above the store and a selection of retail and kiosk units at ground level, along with 350 lower-ground and ground-level car parking spaces with an additional 10 blue badge spaces for residents’ use.
Planning consent for phase two was received from the London Borough of Barking & Dagenham and the Greater London Authority. Stephane Slama-Royer, managing director of Bouygues Development, said: “This is an exciting stage in the regeneration of Barking Town Centre and the wider area.
"Having Asda on board is a key aspect of the scheme’s success and we are very pleased to be working in partnership with such a committed food store operator. We believe the London Road development will have a really positive impact on the wider regeneration of Barking & Dagenham”.
