Work at Beam Park to start

Thu 11 April 2019, 9:39 am

Work at a £1 billion development in Dagenham offering new homes and schools will start this spring, after planning permission was given last month.

The Beam Park project, which is a joint venture between developers Countryside and L&Q, will be built on the former Ford assembly plant. 

Planning consent was given in March to regenerate the area, following the signing of a Section 106 agreement, and construction is due to start shortly.  

The development will have more than 3,000 homes, with 50% affordable housing, providing one, two and three-bedroom apartments and three and four-bedroom houses.

Beam Park will also have a new railway station, medical centre, two schools, retail spaces, a gym, nursery and a multi-faith space. 

Prices for the new homes start from £270,000, with Help to Buy available, and sales will launch on 4 May. The first homes at Beam Park are due to be ready by 2020.
