About Lingham Place, Havering
The site, which is a mixture of flats and houses, was praised during public consultation for being a much needed and long overdue redevelopment of the area. The style of housing is sympathetic to the surroundings, with buildings not exceeding 3 storeys.
The design ensures that each unit is distinctively separated from its neighbour through the use of rainwater goods and entrance porches.
All upper floor flats have generous balconies to supplement the ground floor amenity space. At ground level, flats are provided with front patios and secure gardens. External spaces are designed to maximise public uses, hard paved areas prioritise pedestrian use and allow informal children’s play in line with Homezone principles.
