Living and working in Thurrock


The next 10 years will see Thurrock transform as the result of a massive growth and regeneration programme. A £6.6billion investment will create an estimated 14,000 new homes and 31,450 jobs across a number of locations.

Modernising towns

Projects vary from the modernisation of our historic towns, such as Tilbury, Purfleet and Grays, to exciting developments such as the new Thames Enterprise Park, which provides a base for ground-breaking businesses to expand and innovate.

Investing in environment

Regeneration is also boosting Thurrock's attraction to visitors following significant investments in environmental projects such as Thameside Nature Park and RSPB: Rainham Marshes. These sites preserve ancient woodland and medieval marshes, and offer modern visitor centres.

Overall this huge investment is a commitment to Thurrock: a place of opportunity, enterprise and excellence, where individuals, communities and businesses flourish.
