Top quality new homes at Roxwell Road

Across the country there is a desperate need for more housing, and in Barking and Dagenham the situation is no different. We need more affordable homes for local people.

As one of the solutions to this problem, the council is proposing to redesign the layout of some of the areas where they have older housing. This will allow them to build extra, good quality homes.

As part of this, and following consultation with residents, the council has decided to replace the existing properties at 2 & 4 Stebbing Way and the odd-numbered flats at 53-135 Roxwell Rd (the even numbered flats are not affected.)

The council has asked us, at Be First, to carry this forward. We plan to work with residents to design new, top quality homes on the site.

It is important to remember that before the rebuilding goes ahead, we will help residents to move to alternative housing. But, we will guarantee residents the right to return, if they want to, once the work is completed, which we anticipate would be by the summer of 2023.

Everyone who wants to return will have the opportunity to get involved in the design of the new homes.

There are other rehousing options for those who do not want to return.

If our plans are agreed, residents will be fully supported through this process. We will help them find suitable alternative housing by the end of 2020 and we will cover all the costs of moving home. Full details are in our newsletter.

We expect to have some initial design ideas soon and we very much hope that you will give us your views. The designs will be published here, and you can also see them at our drop-in event on 17 October. Details below.
