Dagenham East consultation update

Nov 05, 2015

Today Jon Cruddas MP launched his public consultation of Eastbrook Ward, to find out what people think of recent proposals to build a mosque on the May and Baker Community Club land, next to the Sanofi regeneration site. In the most recent discussions with the trustees a prayer room in the community club has been alluded to rather than the initial plans for a mosque. However, a final decision has not yet been made on the future of the site. As with all developments in the local area Jon wants to know what the local residents think.

What future for Dagenham East?

Over the past two weeks many residents have been contacting Jon Cruddas regarding the proposed plans to build a mosque on the Sanofi site near Dagenham East. Last month the Trustees of the May and Baker Community Club were approached by Barking & Dagenham Council on behalf of Barking Mosque, and a meeting took place with council Leader Cllr Darren Rodwell, along with a member of the council planning department. A general proposal was been agreed in principle with little or no consultation with local residents.
