Aston-Mansfield, the charity that owns and runs Durning Hall, is consulting local residents on its plans to redevelop the site, which sits on the junction of Woodgrange Road and Earlham Grove.

The charity says that

…despite the support of the community over the years, there are longstanding issues with the existing buildings that need to be addressed.

Without significant work, the site is financially unsustainable and cannot support us continuing our charitable work across Newham.

To address these challenges, we have been working on plans to redevelop the site. Redevelopment will secure our future in Newham. It will allow us to develop the work that the charity does to support children, young people and families in the borough.

The detailed plans for the redevelopment of the Durning Hall site include:

  • 78 new high-quality homes for Forest Gate, including 35% (27 new homes) at affordable levels, with associated courtyard and play space within the proposals for residents.
  • A new circa 100 sqm ‘Youth Enterprise Pop-Up Space’ to help young people develop trading and business skills.
  • 127 sqm of creative children’s playspace that will be designed to accommodate children with special educational needs and disabilities.
  • Four flexible retail units on Woodgrange Road to support local businesses in Forest Gate.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the consultation will be run entirely online. There is a dedicated website, where you can have your say.
