Good neighbour guide

Whether you're new to the borough or already a Barking and Dagenham resident, we offer you a warm welcome to the local community.

Barking and Dagenham prides itself on a strong sense of community spirit. To ensure we all have a shared understanding of what we each value as a community, we spoke to thousands of residents to find out what they expect of each other as neighbours.

The 2019 Good Neighbour Guide lists the top 10 values residents told us they wanted to see from their neighbours and the behaviour that we want to encourage in the borough.

We’re one community and together we can build a better borough for everyone - one we can all be proud to call home.
