On Friday (10.09.21) residents of Dagenham Village met with Jon Cruddas MP on Church Street to accept a petition against the Controlled Parking Zone due to be introduced to the area imminently. Despite the majority of residents voting against the scheme, the council are planning to push through the CPZ for access purposes based on advice from the London Fire Brigade.
Following last week's revelations which highlighted the Government had pulled funding for a new station on the Beam Park development site, Jon Cruddas MP has now learned that the proposed new c2c station was fully funded by the Greater London Authority and developers. In addition to the construction, the GLA and London Mayor's office had also offered the Department of Transport £10million to protect the Government against the cost of operational deficit for the first 10 years.
Jon Cruddas MP for Dagenham and Rainham is one of 118 MPs and peers that has written to the recently-appointed Secretary of State for Education Nadhim Zahawi urging him to make an "early reassessment" of the Department for Education's plan to remove funding for the vast majority of applied general qualifications such as BTECs.
