To create a brand new riverfront town in East London delivering a thriving new eco-district comprising of 10,800 homes, new schools, commercial and cultural offerings along 2km of beautiful south-facing Thames river frontage.
As one of the largest regeneration projects in the UK, this ambitious project has the full support of the Mayor of London to deliver a minimum of 35% affordable homes, with a provision to raise it to 50% over time. In 2021, the new Barking Riverside London station will open – part of a £260 million extension to the London Overground. At the same time, a new riverboat service will be introduced, alongside an extensive cycle network connecting Barking Riverside London to Barking and beyond.
Barking Riverside London will be an innovative, healthy and well-connected place, made special by its heritage, ecology, riverfront location and by its community.
