What is the project?
We have developed an ambitious programme to transform Barking Town Centre into a vibrant town centre for the borough's existing and new communities. There will be:
- A greater choice of housing in the town centre
- A thriving economy with new bars, cafés, restaurants and shops
- New employment opportunities for local people
- Improvements to the town centre's roads, pedestrian areas and green spaces, paid for with funding from the government
- New transport links with Ilford and Barking Riverside
- New cultural and leisure facilities
