NLA visits Barking & Dagenham for an in-depth look at upcoming development across this key East London Borough. As LBBD prepares to launch it’s new regeneration company, this NLA On Location event will review activity to date and look at what the priorities should be for the future of the Borough. What are the key areas due for renewal? What essential improvements to transport links are being implemented to ensure successful delivery of the Borough’s planned 42,500 new units over the next 20 years?
A conference session will examine the planning, development and delivery opportunities and challenges across the borough and discuss what is needed to maximise development potential.
Afternoon tours led by LBBD will look at specific development areas in further detail including Barking Town Centre, Barking Riverside and Beam Park, followed by networking drinks.
