Green light for PCKO Architects' Briar Road Estate masterplan in London

PCKO Architects has won the last of 33 separate planning applications that will allow work to begin on their masterplan for the 25 hectare Briar Road Estate in the London Borough of Havering. The plans, drawn up for the London Borough of Havering and Notting Hill Housing Trust, will provide 102 new homes, of which 84 will be two-bedroom houses or larger, while retaining and improving the quality of the existing estate.

PCKO’s masterplan proposals will retain the vast majority of the estate, and provide a framework for Notting Hill Housing Trust and Havering Council to begin working to improve the estate. Existing homes will be modernised and there will be a strong focus on improving the quality of existing green spaces and public realm, with the addition of new landscaping, play areas and replacement of pavements, kerbs and street lighting.
