One of the biggest projects in East London to help tackle the capital's housing crisis is underway in Canning Town, with a ceremony held to formally mark work starting on the Manor Road Quarter.

The Mayor of Newham, Rokhsana Fiaz, was joined by Tom Copley, deputy mayor for housing and residential development at the Greater London Authority. The guests ceremonially signed a wet concrete slab to mark the occasion, which will be incorporated into the scheme.

ECF was represented by its board and its chairman, Sir Michael Lyons. Originally from Newham, Sir Michael went on to have a distinguished career in local government and also served as chairman of the BBC for a period.

Sir Michael Lyons, chair of ECF, said: "We are pleased to be continuing the regeneration of Canning Town, which has proved to be a catalyst to the wider renewal of the area [...]

"At ECF, we bring together the very best of the public and private sector, which means that we are uniquely equipped to help in shaping and strengthening local economics: by taking complex sites, committing for the long term and creating the momentum needed to positively transform places."

Rokhsana Fiaz, Mayor of Newham, said: "How we reimagine spaces is important as it gives local residents confidence about the possibilities that exist in their communities. The partners involved in the new Manor Road Quarter, including ECF, the London Borough of Newham and GLA, have worked hard to build up this confidence and provide a much-needed resource for our people - homes that people can afford."
