Bouygues Development and its consortium partner, One Housing Group, have been given the green light to proceed with a £600m regeneration project in Canning Town, London.

The scheme is to form part of the £3.7bn Canning Town and Custom House Regeneration Programme, which is being led by Newham Council and is due for completion by 2023.

It is hoped work will now start during the last quarter of 2012 following approval from the London Thames Gateway Development Corporation's planning committee.

The 6-hectare (14.8-acre) development is to boast more than 30,000sq m (322,917sq ft) of leisure and retail space and more than 5,000sq m (53,820sq ft) of community facilities.

Mixed-tenure residential units are also proposed as part of the scheme, which is to be built in phases and reconnect areas north and south of the A13 flyover through Canning Town.

Bouygues Development managing director Stephane Slama-Royer said: "The regeneration scheme will bring a much-needed sense of place to the area and a wealth of opportunity to the local community."

Newham mayor Sir Robin Wales added: "This scheme is the real game-changer for Canning Town, and illustrates the scale of our ambition when it comes to delivering regeneration in Newham."
