Barking and Dagenham is London's newest opportunity.
The area has more untapped potential than any other part of the capital - and with the Olympics in 2012 shifting the world's attention to east London, now is the time to see what Barking and Dagenham has to offer.
The borough has some of the best value land for development and the most affordable premises for businesses large and small anywhere in London.
With a proud history of manufacturing, industrial and sporting excellence thanks to the talent of its people, strategic transport links and location close to major markets in the South East and onto Europe, Barking and Dagenham really is London's Newest Opportunity.
London’s Newest Opportunity was launched at an event held at City Hall October 2011 where local civic and business leaders combined with investors, business people and politicians to set out the Borough’s offer. On 7 October 2013 over 150 businesses, investors, politicians and key stakeholders gathered again at City Hall to hear the progress made over the last two years, how Barking and Dagenham had just won Best Overall Small Business Supporting London Borough and the emerging opportunities.
Speakers including Richard Blakeway, Deputy Mayor for Housing, Land and Property at the GLA highlighted Barking and Dagenham’s growth potential, the increasingly young and diverse population generating new markets and opportunities alongside the wide range of development opportunities.
