Countryside, one of the UK’s leading home builders, and L&Q, one of the UK’s leading housing associations, marked the beginning of construction at the 3,000-home Beam Park regeneration site in East London with a groundbreaking ceremony that was attended by James Murray, London’s Deputy Mayor for Housing and Residential Development.
The site at Tattenhoe Park is a strong example of Countryside working in partnership with Homes England to meet the challenge of delivering more high-quality homes quickly at a time when housing is a topical issue.
The 115-acre site has planning permission for 500 homes, 35% of which are affordable, and has been carefully designed around a landscaped-led masterplan.
Situated near Burnt Ash Lane in Bromley, 218 homes are planned for the redevelopment of the Pike Close estate, with a target of 50% affordable.
Countryside has helped to kickstart the community garden at the William Bellamy Children’s Centre in Barking & Dagenham, a short walk from Countryside’s Trinity Place development, through the provision and installation of two raised beds.
