Secured by Design are working to ensure development in East London is safe and secure

The Metropolitan Police working closely with Secured by Design, the national police crime prevention initiative, is working to ensure the development of 3,000 homes at Beam Park between Dagenham and Rainham in East London are going to be safe and secure for residents.

Building work began earlier this year at the £1bn development of homes beside the River Beam. The first homes are due to be ready in 2020 and the development due for completion in 2030.

All the homes are being built to Secured by Design standards. This will ensure that doors, windows and locks, will be of sufficient robust quality to deter and reduce crime.

Situated on part of the former Ford plant at Dagenham, which was one of the largest car plants in the world and the backdrop for the iconic British film ‘Made in Dagenham’, its 72 acres will provide up to 50% of affordable homes, two new primary schools and a generous allocation for parkland and open spaces.

Beam Park will have its own railway station, which is scheduled to open in May 2022 providing a 20-minute commute to Fenchurch Street in the City. It will be fronted by a station square, which is hoped will become a community hub with dining, health and leisure facilities.

Beam Park is a partnership between the Greater London Authority, the boroughs of Barking and Dagenham and Havering, and Countryside and L&Q.

Vicky Savage, London Managing Director at L&Q, said:
“L&Q is committed to providing quality affordable homes for everyone, within a neighbourhood they can be proud of. Barking Riverside and Beam Park are truly fantastic new developments, which have been designed to be safe and welcoming for everyone.
“We are proud that our work has been recognised in this way and look forward to continuing our journey with our partners at the GLA and Countryside.”

Commander Mark McEwan, of the Metropolitan Police, said: 
“This is another example of the important work being completed by our Designing Out Crime Officers across London in reducing crime by influencing the built environment.”
