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. So that we all have a shared understanding of what we each value as a community, we spoke to over 6,000 residents over a year to find out what we expect of each other as neighbours.

The Good Neighbour Guide is the result of this consultation. It 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.
