Gateway buys new site

Gateway buys new site

Gateway recently exchanged contracts with Aitch Group on the development site 140-150 Earlham Grove, Forest Gate, E7, and plans to complete its acquisition in a month’s time. We plan to develop 78 new affordable homes from the site which will be made up of shared ownership and affordable rent properties.

The site is located in Forest Gate which lies between the two major commercial centres of Stratford and Ilford. It was identified as a strategic area for regeneration and growth in the London Borough of Newham’s Supplementary Planning Document 2010 and Core Strategy 2012.  

Development is a key priority for us and Gateway is actively seeking to generate new opportunities and provide new homes for residents in East London. As part of our 2020 Vision Strategy, Gateway plans to build 500 new homes by 2020. We are focusing on building affordable homes for low income households, including specialist provision for older people.

Gateway is planning to start work on the site in Spring/Summer 2018, and expects the development to be completed in Autumn 2020. The new shared ownership homes will be on the market in early 2020.
