A groundbreaking ceremony to mark the start of creating 227 new homes on the 443 acre site was held today.

David Montague, chief executive of housing association L&Q, who are developing the site in partnership with the Mayor of London, said: “Today marks the latest step in our journey towards creating a brand new neighbourhood in the borough.”

Deputy mayor for housing, James Murray, added: “Work on the Barking Riverside development is well underway, and I’m pleased to see the next phase moving ahead.

“With London in the midst of a housing crisis, it is vital we make the most of opportunities like this.”
