Transport for London has released a new parcel of disused railway land next to Bow Church DLR station in Bow Road, to the Optivo Housing Association. The group is planning to build 150 homes, with half at the “affordable” low end of the rental market. The new site is part of the GLA's London Plan to reduce the housing shortage. Work has been started on 1,500 new homes across London, with thousands more in the pipeline. These are aimed creating revenue for TfL to plough back into the public transport network which is facing a cash crisis because of the pandemic.
