High density, multi-appeal housing set for reality


THE LONDON Borough of Barking & Dagenham is looking to create the prototype high density, multi-appeal, urban development at its Barking Reach site.

The plan is for 6,000 housing units, from river front flats and town houses for young and older professionals to traditional semis with gardens for families.

'We want people to move here, move up and stay in the area, ' said director of planning Peter Wright.

The masterplan is on view as part of Urban Design Week at Central Library, Town Hall Square, Barking from 15-23 September.
