Last year, Thurrock Thames Gateway Development Corporation approved and published the Master Plan for South East Thurrock, which identified Tilbury Marshes and Tilbury Riverfront as appropriate locations for new jobs and homes, which would also complement the regeneration of Tilbury Town Centre.

Consequently, the Development Corporation prepared a Development Brief to provide more detailed guidance for development of Tilbury Marshes and Tilbury Riverfront up to 2021. This work was subject to public consultation in June/July 2010.

The final document was approved by the Board in September 2010.

The approved Development Brief will support Tilbury in transforming it into a distinctive and thriving place in which to live, work and visit. It will contain excellent parks and open space, new employment opportunities at the Port of Tilbury, a diverse range of homes in an exciting riverfront location and new and improved links to the River Thames and to local assets such as Tilbury Fort.
