Levelling Up Bid Success for Dagenham Heathway

In June 2022 Jon Cruddas MP supported the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham in their round two levelling up bid “Up the Heathway” seeking funds to transform Dagenham Heathway. This week the Department for Levelling Up, Housing & Communities confirmed that the bid had been successful, and the council had been awarded £10,883,068 for the project.

Last week was Labour Party conference and some of the central themes were work, fairness, and security making Britain the best place to grow up and the best place to grow old in. This is an important message for areas like my constituency of Dagenham and Rainham, where in Barking and Dagenham we have one of the youngest populations in London, and in Havering we have the oldest.
