With the ongoing cuts to our National Health Service, it is more important now than ever before, to fight for more investment locally. Our services have been cut back to the bare minimum and standards have slipped. This is just unacceptable.For the last four years Jon Cruddas has been pushing for more health provision in Rainham, to meet the needs of local people. Jon Cruddas MP and the Dagenham and Rainham Labour Party have launched a new campaign, fighting for more investment in our local health service. Having already met with senior consultants to discuss the options it is now time to get local people involved. Services such as Queen's Hospital are coming under more and more strain due to cuts and closures across the area, people are not receiving the level of care or quality of service that they need. It's time to fight back and secure investment.Jon has staarted a petition calling on the government and Havering Council to recognise the need for more health provision in the Rainham area.If you are a Rainham resident and would like to collect a petition down your street, please contact Jon's office sending your full name, address and contact number to andrew.achilleos@parliament.uk an information pack and petition will then be sent out for you to fill in and return.You can also add your name to our online petition below.

 

Following last week’s revelations which highlighted the Government had pulled funding for a new station on the Beam Park development site, Jon Cruddas MP has now learned that the proposed new c2c station was fully funded by the Greater London Authority and developers. In addition to the construction, the GLA and London Mayor’s office had also offered the Department of Transport £10million to protect the Government against the cost of operational deficit for the first 10 years.

 

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.

In November 2020 Jon Cruddas MP was contacted by patients of the Spring Farm GP surgery, which has operated for 30 years on Upminster Road North in Rainham, concerned about rumours the practice would close in 2021.

After over two years fighting against a second mass waste incinerator in Belvedere the case is finally closed, and the Government approved site will now go ahead. Jon Cruddas MP launched a campaign against the proposals back in 2018 when all reports suggested it would damage air quality, human health, and biodiversity across the south of Dagenham and Rainham.

The campaign attracted far reaching support from the Mayor of London, neighbouring MPs such as Abena Oppong-Asare and environmental groups including Greenpeace and the Wildlife Trusts.

The reports of closure early in the New Year of the Spring Farm GP surgery in Upminster Road North have brought about protests from local residents.

A group of Elm Park residents are calling on the Havering Council Planning Department to reject proposals that will see a loss of RAF heritage, mature trees and could have a detrimental impact on parking in the area. The campaign was started by residents of Cavendish Gardens and has gained the support of Jon Cruddas MP and his local Action Team.

Labour Action Team Member Trevor McKeever has been speaking with key figures in the campaign and is urging others to lend their support by signing the petition.

This week the Mayor of London conveyed to MPs Jon Cruddas and Abena-Oppong-Asare that plans for a judicial review into the government's controversial rubber stamping of a second waste incinerator at Belvedere had been dropped.

Over the last few weeks Jon Cruddas MP has been contacted by concerned residents in Mark's Gate regarding ongoing development works around the Billet Road area. Resident's of Coral Close and Uplands Road allege that Redbridge Council failed to consult ahead of a large residential development being approved in 2018 which is now having serious implications on noise levels, traffic congestion, air quality and the environment.

Since 2017 Jon Cruddas MP has been fighting alongside residents to resolve numerous issues that have continued to occur down East Hall Lane in Wennington, Rainham. At the beginning of April Jon pressured Havering Council into action regarding a substantial fly-tip.

This week Jon Cruddas MP has been approached by residents of Wennington Village regarding the ongoing issue of HGVs passing through to access East Hall Lane. The HGVs are alleged to be causing significant damage to the road surface and often leave the area covered in debris.
