Beam Park

Beam Park is a new neighbourhood in the south of the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham and the London Borough of Havering. It is named after the River Beam which forms the boundary between the boroughs. It will be served by Beam Park railway station in Havering. 2899 homes are planned, with 2166 in Barking and Dagenham and 733 in Havering.[1] It will include a town centre in the Havering part of the development.[2] It covers an area of 29 hectares (71.7 acres).[3] It previously formed part of the Ford Dagenham plant site. The development is a joint venture between London and Quadrant and Countryside Properties. Planning consent was given in September 2018 and construction began in May 2019.[4] It is part of the London Riverside opportunity area and is designated as a housing zone by the Greater London Authority.


The area was part of the riverside marshes of the parishes of Dagenham and Hornchurch. Much of the land was part of the Ford Dagenham plant which straddled the boundary.


Beam Valley Country Park is located to the north and Beam Reach is an industrial area to the south.
