Welcome to the Berkeley Homes TwelveTrees Park Community Website

This community website has been created to ensure that you, the local community have direct access to important information about the exciting development at Twelve Trees Park including construction updates and news and how to get in touch with the site team. We hope you find the website informative.


TwelveTrees Park is the rebranded name of the Berkeley Homes development site previously known as Stephenson Street.

As construction has commenced on Phase 1, despite some delays to our programme owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are now preparing to launch the public consultation on Phase 2.

This second Phase can deliver circa 1,000 new homes, a significant proportion of which will be affordable, as well as the next phase of the linear park which will provide generous open spaces for the whole community, a new commercial building and retail space for new and existing residents to enjoy.

We will be hosting both in person and online events throughout the month of February, starting with a couple of drop-in sessions as early listening exercises with local community representatives and interested resideTwelveTrees Park is the rebranded name of the Berkeley Homes development site previously known as Stephenson Street.

  • Rial Café (just outside West Ham Station)on Thursday 3 February from 5pm – 7pm and
  • Custom House Bookshop on Wednesday 9 February from 3pm – 6pm, followed by a short presentation and Q&A session at 6pm.

If you are interested in either of these events, please let us know by emailing our dedicated consultation team on stephensonstreet@londoncommunications.co.uk, as there is limited seating available for the evening sessions.

These in-person events will also be supplemented by a webinar held on Zoom, to help us reach out to as many interested people as possible during these challenging times. This will be held on Tuesday 8 February from 1pm – 2pm and you can register to attend here.

If you have any questions about any of these events of the scheme itself, please click here to get in touch with a member of the team.


In February 2018, following more than two years positive dialogue with the local community and with Newham Council, we were extremely pleased that the Strategic Development Committee came to the unanimous decision to grant planning permission for the development site. This was followed by a referral to the Mayor of London and the Secretary of State and full planning permission was issued in August 2018.

Since then, we have continued to work with Newham Council and the Greater London Authority on the details and conditions of the planning consent. In November 2019, we were delighted to welcome the Mayor of Newham, Rokhsana Fiaz, to TwelveTrees Park to officially ‘break ground’ on the site.

Key Deliverables

The site will deliver:

  • 3,838 new homes – 40% of this will be much needed affordable housing for the people of Newham and surrounding area
  • A dedicated community space
  • New retail and commercial units
  • A new home for the East London Science School
  • A 4.5-acre park and a total of 12.5 acres of high quality accessible public spaces

The development will also unlock the site to the community for the first-time improving connections and access by:

  • A link from West Ham Station into a new local centre
  • Two new pedestrian bridges onto the site increasing access and connectivity from existing communities
  • A new road bridge / layout to improve traffic flow and ease potential congestion
  • Green links that will extend as the project is built out and will be integrated into the Leaway
