The Existing Site
The Quayside Barking Site is c. seven acres, it is bounded by the River Roding to the east, an Ibis Hotel and the Highbridge Road to the west, London Road to the north and the Tesco car park site to the south.
The current site comprises of an existing 4,960 sqm Tesco store, associated car parking and a petrol filling station (pfs).
EcoWorld London received ‘resolution to grant permission’ in November 2019 for a residential-led scheme covering the southern portion of the application site. The planning permission was for 514 homes with buildings up to 23 storeys.
EcoWorld London, working with Tesco, are thrilled to have the opportunity to produce a revised masterplan for the whole site that integrates into the wider area and will be more beneficial for the local community.
The Tesco Site forms a key part of the regeneration of the Roding Riverside. Barking is currently benefiting from large scale investment in residential led developments that are revitalising the town, with major investment on the former industrial land on either side of the River Roding. The Tesco Barking site forms an important area of the River Roding revitalisation.
