As part of a DfT funded Coronavirus response we're supporting Be First and LBBD to identify and deliver a trial of emergency measures to tackle speeding, cut-through traffic and make it safer to walk and cycle in residential streets between Parsloes Park and Porters Avenue. For more info check out Safe Streets Becontree on Facebook.
Street Space has been commissioned by Be First / London Borough of Barking and Dagenham to facilitate community engagement and collaborative design with residents living in and moving through the Fiddlers in Becontree Heath as part of a GLA funded Low Emission Neighbourhood. Greening the Fiddlers will work with residents to reduce traffic dominance, improve air quality and create more welcoming & inclusive public spaces in the neighbourhood.
The Barking Bridge Project was initiated by local resident Tim Hunt who wanted to do something about the state of the two footbridges on Essex Road, Barking. Street Space are supporting Tim with additional community engagement and a collaborative bid for funding to transform the footbridges through community-led regeneration in partnership with LBBD and Studio 3 Arts.
