Regeneration and redevelopment are buzzwords these days not only in parts of the UK like London and Essex, but across Europe. North of the popular tourist area in Amsterdam, is a place that has had problems for many years, but which has in the last few years experienced something of a rebirth. This is urban regeneration on a massive scale, as the landscape changes for the better. Contemporary structures such as the iconic Netherlands Film Institute are a good example of investment in the area, along with the eye catching, artistically designed luxury apartment blocks.
The same dynamic is happening over here in places like Romford, where structures that have lain derelict for years are now being replaced, or being given a new lease of life. There is an increased sense of urgency to embark on this type of project in the last few years in order to cope with the demand for housing. An ice rink in Romford, that has been empty and unused since 2013 is earmarked for conversion into nine apartment blocks providing 620 homes. A real estate and development group called Affinity Global based in Mayfair, proposes to complete blocks between four to eight storeys high, which will include two gym’s, shops, car parking, and cycle parking spaces for residents.
According to borough council planning officers, the development is intended to improve the visual character of the area while protecting the natural and built environment. A Morrisons supermarket was originally going to grace the site, but a land swap deal changed the plans.
There is a push these days, for good quality homes to be built by reputable companies, that will alleviate the housing problem and deliver the government’s pledge for new housing. Parts of London and Essex are seeing extremely positive results in areas like Romford, Waltham Forest, Bow Cross, Purfleet, Basildon, Barking and Ilford.
