The Vision – a snapshot

At over 140 acres the Purfleet Centre Regeneration Project site presents a unique opportunity to deliver a transformational development scheme with placemaking at its core. Sharing Thurrock Council’s vision the project is about delivering a new town centre with shops, community facilities, housing, and employment opportunities — all set within a high-quality environment.

The project is about creating a desirable place to live and work that capitalise on Purfleet’s natural advantages that include;

  • Its location on the River Thames
  • Quick access to the M25
  • Direct 28-minute train to Fenchurch Station, Central London

The Vision — developing it further

Building on the work that has been undertaken by Thurrock Council, the project team are undertaking a process of developing the collective vision for the future of Purfleet. This process involves engaging with a range of stakeholders from the local community and Thurrock Council, through to the Environment Agency and RSPB, in an effort to gain intelligence and insight to help mature the vision that was put forward in the bid phase of the project. This process will help ensure we meet our aim of delivering a development that transforms Purfleet from a congested and disjointed semi-industrial landscape into a desirable place to live and work, with enduring roots. This change is intended to bolster and sustain the existing community and create a place where people are proud to live, in addition to being in harmony with its natural surroundings.
