Planning proposals for the second phase of Bellway Homes' Barking Riverside development have been submitted.

A new secondary school will be built at the scheme’s District Centre, with infrastructure work already underway to enable the project to start if plans are approved.

Planning experts are also looking at amendments to this part of the scheme to account for the proposed extension of the London Overground line to Barking.

Chancellor of the exchequer George Osborne approved plans in March’s budget announcement to build the £150 million GOBLIN line running between Gospel Oak and Barking, as reported by Bold. It is hoped that funding for the extension will be announced in Osborne's autumn statement. 

Building work on phase one of one of the largest regeneration schemes in London continues apace. It is hoped that the development will eventually deliver 10,800 new homes over the next 20 years.
