The town centre’s strategic position – just 15 minutes from the City of London – means that it is experiencing a huge expansion in the residential and commercial offer centred around Barking Station. With retail, creative industries and leisure opportunities at its heart, it promises to become a thriving new centre for east London.

Key development opportunities include Crown House, London Road, the area around and above Barking Station, Clockhouse Avenue and the Vicarage Field shopping centre.
