You can have your say on a planned £1.1 million redevelopment of Dagenham Central Park next week.

The revamp, approved by the council earlier this month, includes a new adventure play track, a BMX track for toddlers and £200,000 funding for improvements to Dagenham Rugby Club’s clubhouse.

The cost of the scheme will be offset by money raised from importing soil from building sites across London and south east England, the council says.

CU London hosts two consultation events on the plans at their campus in the former Dagenham Civic Centre from 6.30pm to 8pm on Thursday, November 8 and 1pm to 3pm on Saturday, November 10, after which the scheme will be submitted for planning approval and to the Environment Agency.

“I would encourage anyone with concerns or an interest in the development to come down to one of the events at CU London and let us know your thoughts,” said deputy council leader Saima Ashraf.
