Plaistow Place: AN EDUCATION-LED PROPOSAL FOR A NEW SECONDARY SCHOOL AND HOMES
On behalf of the Department for Education, LocatED is bringing forward an exciting education-led scheme to transform 259 Plaistow Road in Newham – the former Dagenham Ford garage next to Plaistow London Underground station, called Plaistow Place.
Our proposals have been developed over the last 12 months in response to our extensive community engagement. The proposal comprises:
An exciting education led mixed-use development.
A new 800 place secondary school with a sixth form to meet the educational needs in Newham.
319 new homes – private, family and affordable, including social rented homes.
A range of new school facilities that can be used by the whole community including a 5-a-side football pitch, dance studio, conference facilities and sports hall.
A significant amount of high-quality landscaping that celebrates the school.
In September we held two consultation events (a public exhibition and an online webinar) allowing neighbours to meet the team, ask questions, and understand how the proposals have evolved. The team are currently considering the feedback received at these consultation events and preparing a planning application to submit to the London Borough of Newham later in the Autumn.
