Residents are being urged to share their thoughts on plans to transform Barking and Dagenham’s parks.

The consultation, which will be running until April, 24, will feed into a wider strategy and master plan to improve access to and the quality of the borough’s 25 parks.

Cllr Saima Ashraf, deputy leader and cabinet member for community leadership and engagement, said: “Parks are the lungs of the borough and the centre of community life.

“We love our parks but we all know they can be better.

“It’s vital residents get involved in this consultation and help us work together to make our parks fit for the needs of all the community.”

You can have your say at public consultations that will be held at Barking Learning Centre, in Town Quay from 10am to 3pm on Saturday and at Dagenham Library, in Church Elm Lane from 10am to 3pm on Saturday, March 25.
