Parsloes Park redevelopment given green light by City Hall
The '7million revamp would involve knocking down the single-storey pavilion - described as "no longer fit for purpose" - and building a gym, new changing rooms and studio in its place. Three 3G sports pitches would also be created.
The development was subject to a statutory referral to the mayor of London, who in turn delegated the decision to deputy mayor for planning, regeneration and skills Jules Pipe.
Mr Pipe has decided he does not need to get involved with the proposals and that the application is acceptable.
In a letter, he wrote: "I am content to allow Barking and Dagenham Council to determine the case itself, subject to any action that the secretary of state may take, and do not therefore wish to direct refusal."

In June, the council's planning committee voted in favour of the plans, which would see covered, seated stands surround one of three full size all-weather pitches. It would also be fenced and have floodlights.
