Just over 90 years ago, at 1:16pm on October 1, 1931, the first Ford vehicle rolled off the production line at what was then Ford’s newest global production facility, Ford Dagenham.

 

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.

Residents of Ford Lane, Rainham recently reported to Jon Cruddas MP that parking bays located on the road have become extremely faded, causing the problem of countless parking tickets being issued. Jon's action team were on the doors last month speaking to residents about local issues when they noticed that this problem came up several times.
