Building a better Gascoigne

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Our objective at Gascoigne is to create a modern, sustainable new neighbourhood, providing significantly more and better-quality housing, in a mix of sizes, in an attractive, safe and healthy environment.

We're making great progress too. Last year the council gave outline planning permission for an exciting 850 home development along Abbey Road, on the Gascoigne estate in Barking. And, this will complement the work already underway to transform the eastern side of the estate.

Demolition is now underway on both the east and west sides of Gascoigne Road and consultation is underway in a number of areas on the plans to build new homes. It's an exciting time so watch this site for details.
