Homes England will provide loan financing to help tackle up-front infrastructure costs in the development of a US$4.2 billion neighbourhood in Silvertown. The Silvertown site in Newham has been derelict for the last 40 years and is one of the largest brownfield sites in London’s historic docklands.

The funding includes investment to support the delivery of a new pedestrian and cycle bridge across Royal Victoria Dock. The new bridge will link Silvertown to the Custom House Crossrail station, helping unlock the site for new residents and visitors.
