Gascoigne Road

Gascoigne Road is a public realm and street improvement programme in the rapidly transforming Gascoigne neighbourhood in Barking, London.

The project undertook a process of co-design and public engagement with local schools, resident groups and other key stakeholders to develop a safe, sustainable, biodiverse, and inclusive streetscape with new pocket parks. The project was identified as a key placemaking opportunity in ‘The Big Picture’ Strategy (2020), and initiated by BeFirst in 2021. The street regeneration looks to unite severance between established local community groups and social organisations through providing a healthy walking and cycling route, a series of richly biodiverse habitats, and spaces for meeting, socialising and play.

The project will be submitted for Planning Approval later this year.
