More than 200 new homes are set to be built in the Royal Docks - half of which will be affordable.

The development, known as Gallions 3B, is a partnership between Notting Hill Housing and the Greater London Authority.

It will be situated next to another Notting Hill Housing development, Royal Albert Wharf, with the two sites combined delivering 1,900 new homes.

The two schemes will be integrated but Gallions 3B will also have some distinctive features, including landscaped shared gardens connected to the waterfront.

Other plans include community allotments, an outdoor cinema, art exhibitions and further amenity space.

Of the 236 new homes at Gallions 3B, half are designated as affordable - of which there will be an even split between shared ownership, London living rent and London affordable rent properties.

The other half of the homes will be available for private sale.

John Hughes, group development director at Notting Hill Housing, said: “It is a priority for both Notting Hill Housing and City Hall to provide new affordable homes for the capital, which is why we signed our strategic partnership, and this scheme is the first example of that agreement in action.”

Deputy mayor for housing and residential development, James Murray, added: “We are determined to do all we can to tackle London’s housing crisis, and Notting Hill Housing is a key partner in our commitment to build thousands of new affordable homes for Londoners to rent and buy.

“This site is an important milestone in the wider regeneration of the Royal Docks – the first in the area to deliver 50 per cent affordable housing, including homes for London living rent, those based on social rent levels, and shared ownership homes for first-time buyers.”

A planning application is due to be submitted in February, and if approved, the development is set to be completed in the early part of 2021.
