New food quarter set to regenerate Barking town centre
Come to our Future Cities Forum at Burlington House, London on 13th June and hear from the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham about the new food quarter planned for Barking Town Centre.
Only 15 minutes away from the City, the town centre already has a growing reputation for art and culture and the high street improvement programme for East Street and Barking Market has been backed by the Mayor of London's High Street Fund creating a better layout and accessibility. A refreshed space in front of the former Magistrates Court now consists of new trees, benches and paving.
More opportunities for creative events and activities are planned on the high street such as the Barking Food Court.
The Council is also seeking to secure additional workspace for artists at affordable rents next to the Ice House quarter and Barking Wharf.
