Underused Car Park Redevelopment - Appropriation

Closes 4 Dec 2023

Opened 17 Nov 2023


Havering Council is undertaking a consultation on its intention to appropriate (change the use of) the underused car parks at Dorrington Gardens, Keswick Gardens, Como Street and Angel Way, to facilitate development.  

The current proposals, at pre-application stage, seek to redevelop the car parks to deliver nearly 300 homes, including affordable homes for local people and commercial space for local businesses.

Preparations are being made to submit the plans in Spring 2024, with decisions expected around Autumn 2024.  The Council will sell the sites subject to planning to generate capital receipts as part of the Asset Disposal Programme 2022-2028.
