South Hornchurch resident Daniel Beal has launched a campaign against a developer’s application to put a 10 storey building overlooking the New Road (A1306) near the proposed Beam Park development
Daniel told the Havering Daily: “We were promised a ‘Garden Suburb’ along the New Road, South Hornchurch, with plenty of family houses with Gardens. The Council even produced a booklet I read called the Rainham Beam Park Planning Framework that supported that vision. Yet the new developments going up along the road are almost all tower blocks and there are few 3 bedroom family units. I understand there will be an attempt to ‘green’ the road and that’s good but it will not resemble a Garden suburb!”
He added “The apartments overlooking New Road, in order to ‘integrate’ the new Beam Park development with existing residential streets, were not meant to be higher than 4-6 storeys. Unfortunately, too many blocks are indeed going up higher and Clarion now want to put up a totally inappropriate 10 storey block overlooking New Road, purely to make more money.”
