Greening the Fiddlers is a community-led design project in Becontree Heath, Dagenham. The project aims to make the neighbourhood around the Fiddlers junction safer, greener and a more welcoming place for everyone to enjoy!

A LEN is ultimately aimed at improving air quality and promoting sustainable living in an area, through developing schemes that reduce traffic dominance, create green and welcoming public realm, and make it easier for people to move around by bike or on foot.

Over the last six months, local social enterprise Street Space have been speaking to local residents, business owners, students, teachers, parents and workers in the area about their issues and priorities for the Fiddlers.

We've incorporated all of these comments into early-stage designs, which will give you an idea of what kind of things could be done to address these issues and opportunities. We've identified five priority areas, which you'll see below.

Take a look at the sketches – these aren't set in stone – and leave comments below to let us know what you think!

This is a TfL funded Low Emission Neighbourhood (LEN) project, supported by the Mayor’s Air Quality Fund, delivered in partnership with Be First and the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham, powered by Street Space, Sustrans and Living Streets.

Over the past 10 months, the Greening the Fiddlers team has held over 20 meetings and events, listening to local residents, business owners, schools and community groups to discover people’s issues and priorities for the area.

We’ve incorporated all of this input into these early-stage designs, which will show you what kind of things could be done to address these issues in the area. These aren’t set in stone - we want to know what you think!

These designs will be shaped over the next few months by community input, and we will be testing out some of your brilliant ideas in the Fiddlers, and then these plans will be handed over to Be First and LBBD to be implemented in Spring 2021.
