Chafford Hundred is a recent UK housing brownfield (building began in 1989) just outside Greater Londonmarker between Graysmarker and South Ockendonmarker in the Borough of Thurrockmarker. It is immediately adjacent to Lakeside Shopping Centremarker and West Thurrockmarker. Chafford Hundred railway stationmarker serves the local area, and was built expressly for the settlement

The Chafford Hundred area has seen large growth since its inception, with many City workers living there due to the relatively easy commute into central London. In 2002 it was reported in the national press that Chafford Hundred was the most sought after places to live in England (based on property purchases and enquiries) due to the quality of property and local connections. Housing ranges from one or two bedroom apartments up to five / six bedroom large houses and therefore the area caters for many, although property prices have grown rapidly over the last five years.

The name is re-used from the historic Chaffordmarker hundred, which covered a much larger area including parts of present-day Thurrockmarker in Essex and the London Borough of Haveringmarker in Greater London.


Chafford Hundred currently has three primary schools and one secondary school.
