Greening the Fiddlers is a community-led design project in Becontree Heath, Dagenham. The project aims to improve air quality and the health and wellbeing of people in the area through measures that create green and welcoming public spaces, and make it easier for people to move around by bike or on foot.

Over the past year, local residents, businesses, students and councillors have been sharing their ideas on how to improve the streets and spaces in this neighbourhood through numerous in-person and online events, led by local social enterprise Street Space. We've incorporated all of these comments into designs, which will give you an idea of what kind of things could be done to address issues and opportunities in the area.

We are now focusing our attention on three sites in the Fiddlers: Stour Road (outside William Bellamy Primary School), Becontree Avenue (outside Grafton Primary School), and Whalebone Lane South (leading to the Fiddlers Junction).

Take a look at the sketches at the links below – these aren't set in stone – and fill in the survey or 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 14 months, the Greening the Fiddlers team has held over 20 pop up events and meetings, 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 then hope to implement some of these plans in late Spring 2021.
