Paint The Town are a group of artists and designers hired by the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham (LBBD) to improve the appearance of Barking Town Centre. The money to do this has come from the Mayor of London’s Outer London Fund (OLF) and will be used to decorate and renovate plain security shutters and shop fronts in the town centre, which left plain, can harm the visual appearance of the area. The new treatments to the shutters and shop fronts can also decrease crime and anti-social behavior in an area.
Renovating the town center will encourage shoppers and visitors and improve commercial confidence in the town centre, particularly for the evening economy, which has a great potential to grow with restaurants and visitors to the Broadway Theatre.
