In just three weeks 1151 residents have responded to the informal controlled parking zone consultation launched by Jon Cruddas MP, with 989 completing an online survey, 54 direct emails and 108 responses by post. 86% of constituents taking part said they did not support the scheme and 70% of people have expressed that there was poor communication between the community and council, with many pointing out the unfortunate timing of the consultation when residents were preoccupied with the pandemic.

Jon Cruddas, MP for Dagenham and Rainham, has praised new powers for TfL to crack down on illegal taxi and private hire activity and enhance passenger safety. These new powers are part of the Mayor of London's Taxi and Private Hire Action Plan, which will drive up standards, boost the quality of service for Londoners and will help deliver the greenest taxi fleet in the world.
