Barking & Dagenham plans to build 50,000 homes over 20 years

Barking & Dagenham’s regeneration arm has announced a £300m architectural framework for its ambitious council housing programme.

The east London borough wants 50,000 “high-quality” homes to be built over the next 20 years by the council and its partners and has set up BeFirst, a regeneration company, to ramp up progress.

BeFirst has set itself a five-year target of building at least 2,700 homes which will be largely council owned with some “affordable” and shared ownership properties.
