The £3.7 billion regeneration of Canning Town & Custom House aims to transform the area physically, socially and economically creating a sustainable and cohesive community.

Over the next 15 years more than 10,000 new and refurbished homes will be provided across all tenures, as well as creating vibrant town centres, more green spaces and many more choices and opportunities for both new and existing residents.

The award winning £98 million East City Point regeneration scheme, which involves Countryside, Newham Council and Affinity Sutton Housing Association, is one of the most impressive in London.

The first phase, involving 311 new houses and apartments, is now complete, just over three years since work first started despite the financial crisis.

All homes have been built to Lifetime Homes’ standards, while 10 per cent are suitable for people with disabilities.

And perhaps most importantly of all, Countryside has invested £7.4million in brand new buildings for the Keir Hardie Primary School.

The town houses, which come with gardens and sheds, are high quality, warm, quiet, spacious, and bursting with natural light through huge windows. Likewise, the flats are cleverly designed with large balconies that residents are already making into mini-gardens.

The scheme which received a Housing Design Award in 2009, is vital for the regeneration of Canning Town.
