Residents in Becontree Heath enjoyed a special street event yesterday where they were able to air their views on how to improve the area.
The ‘Street Trail Day’ was organised by Street Space and is part of a public engagement programme seeking local people’s views on how to improve the street scene around Fiddlers Junction.
Held at Becontree Ave car park it also featured a range of activities including free trampolining, salsa dancing and the singing by members of Grafton Primary School choir.
The consultation was held Be First, the organisation in charge of regeneration in Barking and Dagenham, and aims to improve the borough’s transport infrastructure and public realm in order to promote healthy, sustainable travel on behalf of the council.
Tim Martin, transport planning and policy manager at Be First, said: “Making our streets safer, more accessible and enjoyable places to be is crucial to making a better, economically successful and inclusive borough.”
