Wed 17 December 2014, 11:41 am

The Greater London Authority (GLA) is seeking a partner to deliver new industrial development along the A13 corridor, which runs through Barking and Dagenham.

The GLA said that it would establish a formal partnership, which will be prepared and developed in a way that generates employment opportunities, creates value and supports the wider economy of east London.

It will seek a partner to take sites to the market in a “coordinated and considered manner”, with the potential to see development spread over 34.8 hectares.

A breakfast event took place on Monday 15 December at City Hall, attended by representatives from the GLA, as well as the London Boroughs of Havering and London Borough of Barking and Dagenham (LBBD) to hear about ambitions for the corridor.

Speakers included deputy mayor for housing, land and property, Kit Malthouse, and LBBD’s group manager for economic development and sustainable communities, David Harley.
