Places: Aspirational and resilient neighbourhoods

The consultation has now closed.  We would like to thank everyone who contributed to the conversation. 

Over the coming weeks we will be reviewing your comments and thinking about how we can use your ideas as part of our plans for the borough.

Please continue to visit One Borough Voice for further updates.

Barking and Dagenham is made up of roughly 40 neighbourhoods and counting. Many residents love their neighbourhoods, but they are also aware of their issues, from a legacy of under-investment in key physical and social infrastructure; including transport, schools, health facilities and community spaces; to the cleanliness of the streets and the perception of crime. We want to use growth to make sure that every single one of our neighbourhoods is both aspirational and resilient, with both exciting new projects and street-level improvements planned in all corners of our Borough.

Take a look at our initial proposals below to learn more about our plans; and tell us what you think!
