Brocklebank Lodge Development

Barking and Dagenham Council has agreed ambitious plans to build 53 new homes for local residents, on the site of Brocklebank Lodge, on Becontree Avenue. The plans will involve replacing the old building with 37 low rent homes for local people and 16 supported homes for disabled people, such as people who have Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

The new development will also include a community facility built alongside the new homes.


Becontree Forever

Becontree Forever is a programme of art, architecture and new infrastructure to mark 100 years of the Becontree Estate in 2021. The Becontree Estate is the biggest council estate in the UK and the most ambitious of the country’s interwar housing estates. The first of 27,000 houses for returning war heroes and working families were built on the four square-mile estate in November 1921, with the ‘Garden City’ houses and iconic ‘Banjo’ closes recognised across the world.
