Regeneration - Park Rise flats

Havering - A unique location

As an outer London borough with borders into Essex, around 50 percent of Havering’s space is designated as parkland, making our borough one of the greenest in London.

Havering has a number of thriving towns, a proud community, excellent travel connections into London and Essex and has some great opportunities for businesses.

Havering is a fantastic place to live, work and visit.

Havering has an exciting regeneration agenda, to create even more places in our borough where people are proud to live and communities thrive.

Through our regeneration programmes we are:

  • building modern, energy-efficient homes and well-connected neighbourhoods that are right for our borough
  • providing new, high quality Council housing and increasing the amount of family-sized homes
  • providing infrastructure to support new homes
  • increasing opportunities for home ownership for Havering residents 
  • supporting healthy communities, fit for future generations 
  • supporting and investing in our local economy to create a thriving place
  • protecting and celebrating our history and heritage

We are also committed to improving the existing housing stock that we have.

Social value in regeneration

Regeneration is about more than just building homes. It is about investing in building the communities around them too.

Social value is a term used to express the wider impacts regeneration can have, not just in terms of money, but also in relation to providing opportunities, spaces and places so that local people can meet, socialise, innovate, grow and learn in an environment that works for them.
