London car park set to be transformed into hundreds of homes

Planning permission has been granted to convert a former car park into 236 new homes.

Newham Council’s strategic development committee approved plans to build the homes next to Pontoon Dock DLR station in east London.

The development by Bouygues Development Leadbitter Ltd will turn the car park next to the station into high-quality residential housing.

Over 34% of the site will be affordable housing and the planning permission will also include clauses to enable a further uplift in the delivery of affordable homes to 50%.

“This is a significant milestone in the planning process, and with the borough’s determination to provide more new and affordable homes for residents, we look forward to the mayor of London’s consideration of this development,” said councillor Ken Clark, cabinet member for building communities, public affairs, regeneration and planning.

Sadiq Khan is set to review the application before a final decision is made.

If approved, it will follow other significant residential developments approved by the mayor of London in recent weeks.

These include the 10,000 home development in Barking and the Old Oak Park and Park Royal regeneration that will create 605 homes.
