Beck House, on Upton Road, was formerly a hostel providing accommodation for single homeless people and couples. The council is in the process of buying back the building, which has been in a poor state of repair and is now vacant, from Riverside Housing Association.
We aim to submit a planning application in October 2021 for the redevelopment of Beck House and surrounding land.

The proposal is to build around 134 high-quality homes, comprising 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom houses, maisonettes and flats, with a mix of private sale and affordable homes.
The development will improve an area from the eastern point of Beck House up to the boundary of the Angel Community Centre - creating a vibrant community and reducing the potential for antisocial behaviour, with increased natural surveillance and more efficiently designed space. Scott House, Angel Community Centre and Raynham Road Car Park will remain as they are currently.
The scheme is being designed to ensure pollution from the A406 is reduced, and light into and views from the homes are maximised, making comfortable living spaces. It will include improved green spaces and a pedestrianised street with high-quality play spaces for children.
