Jon Cruddas MP mobilises Dagenham and Rainham against the prison plans

The campaign against the prison is well underway, Jon Cruddas’s campaign team have been working hard to ensure that the proposals have not been slipped in through the back door.

The Ministry of Justice have recently contacted London Mayor Boris Johnson outlining the government’s strategy to establish a new modern prison with a 2000 place capacity in Dagenham. The original plans that were put forward in 2009 for a 1500 capacity prison were fought against by thousands of constituents and the proposal was overthrown. These new plans propose a larger facility than the one put forward in 2009.

Dagenham Police Station saved!

Following many months of consultation, decisions have finally been made with regard to the boroughs police stations.
