Planning application submitted for the next phase at Canning Town
The English Cities Fund has submitted a hybrid planning application for 804 homes at the Manor Road Quarter in Canning Town, following an extensive pre-application process with London Borough of Newham and the Greater London Authority.
If approved, the latest phase will provide 402 (50%) much-needed affordable homes in the borough, along with a new linear park with significant highways upgrades. Topping out at 32 storeys, the scheme will provide a range of apartment types and tenures, along with flexible commercial space on the ground floor.
Residential development director, Duncan Cumberland, commented: “Submitting the planning application is a major milestone for the scheme. We have worked closely with GLA, who are the majority landowner, to submit a scheme achieving their aspiration for 50% affordable housing – affordability is a major issue in London at present and this scheme can really be an exemplar in this regard.”
The Manor Road Quarter follows on from the successful £180m Rathbone Market the fund has delivered in Canning Town over the past seven years.
The English Cities fund is the joint venture between Homes England, Legal & General and Muse Developments.
