Council approve plans for “urban district” at Minoco Wharf

Design by Ballymore – submitted to Newham Council

Bloomberg are reporting today that Newham Council have given “preliminary permission” to developer Ballymore to build over 3,000 homes in the Royal Docks.

The project still needs approval by the Mayor of London but Minoco Wharf looks set on having a residential district along with bars, restaurants and shops. There’s also plans for 5,000 square metres of office space.

A variety of factories currently occupy the site and it’s next to the fairly unknown Lyle Park. The developer hopes that this will be the catalyst for regeneration of adjoining sites.
