On Friday 19th of October Jon Cruddas MP and his Havering Coordinator Fay Hough visited Rainham Health Centre to meet with The Patients Committee. The meeting was scheduled to discuss the current situation and ongoing issues at the centre. The Patients Committee have become extremely concerned with diminishing services at the health centre and wanted to express their concerns to Jon with hope of help from their local MP.

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. 

After a year of campaigning, countless site visits, and continuous work alongside the residents of Anglesey Drive, this week saw a huge victory for residents. During the summer residents teamed up with Jon Cruddas MP and his Havering Coordinator Fay Hough and handed a petition to the council calling for better parking enforcement.

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:

On 13th of July Jon Cruddas MP and Havering Coordinator Fay Hough visited Anglesey Drive, in Rainham to discuss the ongoing parking concerns. The biggest issue is with commuters using Rainham c2c station parking down the road. Anglesey Drive currently has single yellow lines, and the parking signs state no parking between 8:30am - 9:30am. Residents have explained that commuters wait until after 9:30am to park before heading to work, and the situation on this very narrow road is becoming untenable.

Are you looking for a local event for you and your family this summer? The Family Adventures Fun Day is an event being hosted by Barking and Dagenham Council. The local authority, over the last few years, have run events that celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the borough. The events are designed to celebrate the diversity in the community.

This year’s local summer festival is right around the corner! The third annual DAGFEST is coming to Dagenham Village on Saturday 15th July. DAGFEST serves to bring music, street theatre, dance, and outdoor activities together for all families to enjoy. The Mayor of Dagenham, Barking and Dagenham Councillors, and Jon Cruddas MP have all attended the event in the past and highly encourage residents to attend.

Jon Cruddas MP and his Havering Coordinator, Fay Hough, met with representatives of c2c on Monday, March 13th to discuss the public consultation Jon has started in regards to issues raised by constituents across Dagenham and Rainham. We received affirmative information that aims to address the concerns many have with overcrowding, the station’s new timetables, and the need for more carriages at peak times. 

The first set of 24 new carriages was delivered to C2C last weekend, and they will enter passenger service within the next few weeks. This will be the start of a four-phase plan to increase capacity, culminating in a new timetable in January that will address the top issues for passengers in each area: 

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.
