Outline planning permission has been granted by Thurrock Council’s planning committee, for a £1 billion proposal.
Purfleet Centre Regeneration Ltd (PCRL), (a joint venture between Urban Catalyst & Swan Housing Association), submitted the plans for Purfleet on Thames.
Up to 2,850 homes are included in the plans, as well as; shops, restaurants, a medical centre, community facilities, a new town centre, upgrades to the rail station, improved riverside area, a new primary school, a 1,000,000 square feet media village with art, film and TV studios and new parks and leisure spaces.
The permission is subject to PCRL coming to an arrangement on detail with the council and stakeholders.
PCRL founder and executive chairman of Urban Catalyst, Ken Dytor, said;
“This development will tap into the power of culture, creative industries and healthy living. The approval is the result of many years of work and has been shaped by our detailed engagement with the local community and stakeholders, who we listened carefully to in drawing up our forward-thinking social infrastructure-led proposals that promote health, education and employment.”
Chief executive at Swan Housing Association, John Synnuck, has said the approval of the homes
“reflects both our long-term relationship with Thurrock Council, which is at the heart of PCRL’s delivery strategy, and our engagement with the local community. We will now all work together to create a thriving environment that provides much-needed new homes and services, alongside significant employment and educational opportunities for the local community.”
