Planning permission granted for Barking Riverside
In a busy summer period, planning permission was granted unanimously by the LB Barking & Dagenham for a proposed all-through school at Barking Riverside. This will be one of the largest such schools in London and would take the form of a single, integrated learning campus comprising a 10 form entry secondary school (with sixth form), 3 form entry primary school and special education needs (SEN) school. In other news, we have also secured planning permission for the proposed conversion and extension of a former pub in Hendon into flats, which historical records suggest was the original site of a 15th Century Tudor Coaching Inn and another flatted development within the LB Hackney.
