Barking Town Centre and the River Roding

A town centre reborn with an improved station as its gateway. The potential to be a great place to live, work, shop and relax with aspiration to attract markets, merchants, makers and more.

A strong focus on food will improve Barking’s offer generating employment and inclusive growth. Roding Riverside will restore the river’s importance to Barking, being the creative and cultural heart of Barking town centre, with new homes and jobs for local people.
