If you look on the Rhino Plant Hire website, along with their great range of hire tools and equipment, you will find some interesting snippets of information about construction and regeneration projects throughout Essex and London. Many areas of Essex such as Romford are experiencing positive growth thanks to multi million pound investments.
One of these exciting schemes concerns a venture between Havering Council partnered with Savills Investment Management and First Base. The proposal centres around the Bridge Close area in central Romford, which is to benefit from regeneration plans that will be residential-led. The development site will be made up of at least 30% affordable homes, plus a primary school, workspace and community and health facilities.
Careful thought has been given to access also, and improvements are being implemented like the new pedestrian bridge about to be placed at the River Rom. There is more consideration given to the surroundings within an area these days, an aspect which was often ignored by planners in the past. Most design experts agree that additions like greenery and other attractive features are incredibly important and encourage a feeling of well-being and contentment.
Safety and security is a big part of any intended improvements to an area too, with well designed walkways, adequate lighting and accessibility for all. Getting from A to B will be aided in this particular project, via traffic calming measures, enabling people to get to the town centre and new Crossrail station in Romford without any issues. As the Council will play a significant role in the project, they are confident that the work will be completed to the highest standards, something which hasn’t always been achieved in the past.
