Rainham Village has suffered repeated flooding in recent months. Many residents in Brookway, South Hall Drive, Stirling Close and nearby roads had flood water enter their homes causing damage to property and long lasting disruption and distress to families.

Back in November, Jon Cruddas MP emailed Havering Council after receiving emails from constituents regarding an abandoned property at 89 New Road, Rainham. This property has sat abandoned for many years and is increasingly attracting fly tipping. Residents mentioned that as quick as the council clean up the fly tipping, it's back again the same week.
