Beam Park development - have your say

Long-awaited plans to redevelop Beam Park, the former Ford Assembly plant, and New Road, Rainham have been formally submitted this week to Barking and Dagenham and Havering Councils.

Jon Cruddas MP for Dagenham and Rainham commented:

Government not ruling out prison in Dagenham & Rainham

Nov 11, 2015

Earlier this week as part of George Osborne’s spending review, it was announced that nine new prisons would be built in England and Wales to replace the country’s Victorian jails. The modernisation of the prison estate will save an estimated £80m a year in reduced costs claims the Shadow Chancellor.

The plan is to sell the sites in order to build thousands of much-needed new homes. It is predicted that more than 3,000 properties could be built on the city centre sites of the old prisons.
