Covid-19 Update

To all residents and members of the local community, we wanted to reassure you that the Barking Riverside team is still present and working at this time. In line with Government advice we have moved our teams to home working. We have the technology to work in this way, so we are still able to respond and take action. If you have any queries, please get in touch using the normal methods (email [email protected]).

We have begun to temporarily shut down core construction activity across the Barking Riverside site. Essential construction site and estate management staff and security teams will remain in place to maintain safety and security.

At present, the Rivergate Centre is closed except for key workers.  We are working with local community groups to help them reorganise events for later in the year and transition their activities online in the meantime.

During this time, keeping up to date with the latest government guidance and support is essential. The LBBD website contains the latest NHS information and so we encourage everyone to check this regularly:

We hope you and your loved ones are taking care, and please get in touch with us should you need further advice or support as we are here to help.

L&Q’s sales suite at Barking Riverside is temporarily closed. The sales team are still on hand and will be conducting all appointments via phone, email and virtual tour.  Completions and handovers are carrying on where possible, but with additional precautions in place to protect the wellbeing of of customers and staff.
