Weston Homes & Tesco preparing proposals to redevelop Goodmayes site into new mixed use development

Weston Homes and partner Tesco have been in dialogue for some time to redevelop the Tesco store and carpark at 822 High Road in Goodmayes into a new mixed use development. The 10.4 acre site is located next to Goodmayes Railway Station and is opposite Barley Lane Park.

The partners are intending to submit a planning application in the Spring of 2019 for the redevelopment of the site into a mixed-use development to include a new Tesco store, a primary school and up to 1,400 new homes.

The partners are looking at creating a new community which will include 35% affordable housing, assisting in meeting Redbridge’s increased housing need.

The proposals will include the provision of a new 3-form primary school, new local employment space through the provision of workshops and cafes,  and the creation of an enhanced public realm on the site.

The scheme would consist of a series of striking contemporary buildings set in 7.9 acres of landscaped grounds, school playground space, residential amenity space and landscaped roofscape, complete with tree lined pedestrian walkways and public open areas. There would be parking at lower ground level for both the Tesco store and residential uses.

It is of paramount importance that Tesco maintain continuity of trading if the site is redeveloped. Therefore, a new store will be built in the current car park whilst the existing store remains open with a temporary car parking arrangement. Once the new store is complete and open, the old store will be closed and demolished. There will be no loss of trading, the new store would open the day after the old one closes.

Proposals for the redevelopment are still at an early stage. The partners have been holding pre-application discussions with the Council about the proposed redevelopment of the site.

Once proposals are more progressed, there will be comprehensive engagement with the local community and public which it is intended will take place in mid-February 2019.
