Grads at RAD

A New Educational Campus in the Heart of the Docklands

We envision RAD as a place that inspires learning, creativity, and innovation, with better facilities and new educational spaces that could be used by local schools, and the wider community.

This will include investment in local initiatives and training programmes to support local residents and young people, alongside high-quality commercial spaces that could support a range of leading industries, from research and development to professional services.

Our plans for Phase 1 have been submitted!

We wish to thank all those who contributed and participated in our consultation to enhance public amenities and to create an educational campus at Royal Albert Dock.

Following an extensive consultation with local communities, we are delighted to have submitted a planning application to the London Borough of Newham. The council will now undertake its own consultation where you will be able to share any final comments directly with them. To do this, search for the planning application number 24/00440/FUL on the council’s planning portal, here.

Equally, we’d be happy to answer any questions or comments you might have. Please get in touch with a member of the team using the comments form at the bottom of this page.

As submitted, our RAD Phase 1 proposals will provide:

  • An educational campus, inspiring learning, creativity and innovation.
  • 628 high-quality student beds, including 220 affordable rooms, to help local students attend university at lower costs.
  • More active public spaces with new planting and seating across the riverside and wider area.
  • Ground floor spaces that will provide retail amenities.
