Havering Council is leading the preparation of a Masterplan for Romford.  The Masterplan, which will be underpinned by consultation with residents, businesses and other stakeholders, will set a vision for a vibrant town with residential and employment growth accompanied by new public spaces to create a quality environment to live and work in.  The Masterplan will encourage investment by providing guidance to developers  in the form of a Supplementary Planning Document.  Consultation on the Masterplan will take place throughout 2019 with completion due by December 2019.
