Views are being sought on the best ways to use a community centre.

The town hall is asking people to share their ideas for a hub which is being built at Sebastian Court in Meadow Road, Barking.

People interested in applying for the lease are also encouraged to get in touch with Barking and Dagenham Council.

Councillor Saima Ashraf, the local authority's deputy leader, said: "Not only is this a fantastic opportunity for residents to come forward and have their say on what this exciting space could be used for, it’s also a chance for organisations, groups or individuals to express their interest in leasing the site.

"We want to get the most out of the space and that’s why it’s so important we hear from you."
