Residents and businesses have been asked to give their views on a masterplan to transform industrial land in and around Barking Creek and the River Thames.

The outline plans look to breathe new life into the area around River Road and Thames Road in a bid to boost business growth, deliver modern industrial buildings, new homes and create a new vibrant, sustainable community.

Councillor Cameron Geddes, Cabinet Member for Social Housing and Regeneration, said: “Barking and Dagenham’s potential for progressive growth is almost boundless.

“And the area around Barking Creek and the Thames is ripe for regeneration – but it has to benefit local people and businesses, which is why it’s crucial residents and local employers get involved in this consultation.”

The consultation runs from 1 December 2020 to 26 January 2021.
