Proposals for a 3,800-home development in West Ham are going on display for a second time.

The site of the former Parcelforce depot in Stephenson Street is being redeveloped by Berkeley Homes, and residents in the surrounding area are being invited to have their say.

A three-day public exhibition will take place at Gainsborough Learning Centre, Hamilton Road, West Ham.

The first will be today, between 4pm and 8pm, with further sessions taking place tomorrow between 12pm and 5pm and Saturday between 10am and 2pm.

It follows an initial consultation in May last year.

Mike Nisbet, development director at Berkeley Homes, said: “Berkeley Homes want to ensure that local people genuinely benefit from our exciting plans to transform this disused site into a new neighbourhood.

“We have listened carefully to the comments received at our first exhibition in May and would like to encourage members of the public to come along to this exhibition and continue to share their views with us.

“We want to turn this development into a welcoming community where people enjoy living, working and spending their free time.”

A secondary school, a 4.5 acre park and retail spaces are also planned for the development.
