This week the residents of Dovers Farm Estate Green received the result of last month’s hearing regarding their ‘Village Green’ application to protect their community green.

The residents have fought off two attempts to develop the green in recent years with the help of Jon Cruddas MP, the first proposal came from Havering Council themselves and the second by a private developer.

On Thursday 11th January2017 at Havering Town Hall there was a public hearing to determine whether Dovers Green in South Hornchurch will be granted ‘Village Green’ status, protecting it from future development. The only objector to the application is Havering Council itself.

Havering Council's objection to the application to turn Dovers Green into an official Village Green has been nothing short of contemptible. Jon Cruddas has been fighting alongside the residents for over two years now, and sent a supporting statement to the hearing. 

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:

In the four years since the pharmaceutical company Sanofi left its former manufacturing site across from Dagenham East Station, significant efforts have been made to regenerate the area and bring in new businesses and services. These regeneration projects serve to provide new employment opportunities for residents in the Dagenham area, and help to shed a positive light on the borough.

On Saturday 15th October Jon Cruddas MP sent his Havering team to Circle Housings’ public exhibition for the redevelopment of 90 New Road, Rainham. The exhibition was to promote proposals which will make up part of the Beam Park Masterplan, the plans include 700 – 750 new properties and will incorporate the new Beam Park C2C rail station.

Last night the Dover’s Corner development proposals went before Havering Council’s Planning Committee. The proposals are part of the Beam Park development masterplan which will eventually see Beam Reach transformed, delivering thousands of new homes. The first phase includes over 500 new properties on Dover’s Corner – which some may know as the Somerfield Site.
