Block Management Romford
As a specialist Block Management Company we are operating in Romford.
History of Romford
Romford is a large town in east London, situated 14.1 miles north-east of Charing Cross. It was first recorded in 1177 as Romfort, which is derived from Old English rum and ford. Its original meaning is the wide or spacious ford.
Romford developed in the Middle Ages, and had a strong agricultural base, with a number of mills used to grind corn. Between the 15th and 19th centuries, Romford had a leather industry. Other industries included cloth making, weaving, charcoal burning, metal working and brewing.
In 1839, the opening of the railway station led to a flourishing local economy. One significant example was the successful Star Brewery. Further local stations were opened, and light industry slowly grew up. In the 1970s, these industries peaked, with factories on the edge of town, including Roneo Vickers office machinery company, Colvern manufacturers of wireless components, May's Sheet Metal Works, and brush manufacturers, Betterware.
New developments in Romford
Lux Homes have on offer a brand new development of 40 high specification 1 and 2 bedroom apartments. The Horizon Luxury Apartments, Romford, RM1, are situated in the busy area of central Romford. Each apartment has stylish and modern finishes, and are set over two beautifully designed modern blocks.
The kitchens are fitted in modern style, with integrated applicances; there is open plan living/kitchen; modern fitted kitchen with integrated appliances; and underground allocated parking space is available for all apartments.
Romford's former ice rink is set to be transformed into almost 1,000 new homes after approval from planning chiefs last night.
After nine years of uncertainty over the future of the seven-hectare site, the £350m plan has been given the go-ahead: a majority vote at a meeting of Havering Council's strategic planning committee. The Rom Valley Gardens development will be one of the largest new residential developments in North East London with 972 apartments.
Romford Council are working with Wates Residential in a joint venture to deliver over 3,500 much-needed new homes across 12 existing housing estates. The programme focuses on bringing investment, new housing and "design crime" to housing where it is most needed. We aim to leave a lasting legacy in our community, that supports our vision that everyone deserves a good place to live.
The 12 site plan will double the number of homes available on these sites, increase council rents by 70%, and we will build almost 400 new shared homes as well as buy new homes. Any council tenant who moves out of their home for conversion, has the right to return to a brand new property.
What our CEO, Mary Anne Bowring, likes about Romford
I was impressed with the Havering Museum, and found it interesting to see how much Romford has developed, since pre-historical times.
