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.

Public consultation for Phase Two of TwelveTrees Park

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

This second phase can deliver over 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, a new commercial building and retail space for new and existing residents to enjoy.

Last month, we hosted some early listening exercises with residents and local stakeholders as stage 1 of our phase two consultation, and had some informative discussions as part of this first phase of consultation engagement.

For our second phase of engagement, we are hosting a series of events to share our plans for Phase Two of the project. We would love to see you at these events and hear your feedback on our proposals – either in person or online, so do join us, speak to a member of the team, ask any questions you might have and let us know your thoughts on this exciting development. 

Join us at our in-person staffed events at Gainsborough Learning Centre on:

  • Wednesday 9 March – 4.30pm to 7.30pm
  • Thursday 10 March – 4.30pm to 7.30pm
  • Saturday 12 March – 1pm to 4pm

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
