Barking and Dagenham in East London has excellent connectivity and is London’s next big growth opportunity. The Council and partners are unlocking potential, playing a key role in supporting London’s growth and delivering for our community.

There are plans for over 35,000 new homes and 10,000 new jobs over the next 20 years. The borough has some of the best value land for development and very affordable premises for businesses large and small. We have ambition and aspiration to become a destination of choice, where people stay and feel welcome.

With a proud history of manufacturing, industrial and sporting excellence, strategic transport links and a location close to major markets in the South East (and on to Europe), Barking and Dagenham really is London’s Growth Opportunity. Regeneration activity is focussed on a number of key Growth hubs  which are central to our ambitions.
