The Scheme Intro
Across 412 acres, Thames Enterprise Park will provide over 3.7 million sq. ft of development space for manufacturing, energy and logistics operations. Clustering these operations is proven to reduce costs, ensure more efficient supply chains, reduce waste and decrease carbon footprint.
Thames Enterprise Park is a forward-looking destination for business, offering great opportunities for ‘next generation’ and specialised industries in manufacturing, logistics, energy and more.
From processing, storage and distribution to innovation and technology, development sites are flexible and can be occupier-led. Thames Enterprise Park is looking to pioneer new ideas in energy generation and distribution, benefitting potential high energy users on site, as well as driving sustainability and contributing to climate targets.
Attracting and developing new and sustainable industries will help to drive economic activity in Thurrock and the local area, while the community will benefit from complementary amenities and skills and training opportunities.
Planning process and deliverability
Since the initial plans were brought forward, Thames Enterprise Park has been engaging extensively with Thurrock Borough Council, business groups and the local community.
In February 2021, revised planning documents were submitted to Thurrock Borough Council to support the outline planning application. The application is progressing through the planning process.
Outline planning permission is being sought to redevelop 412 acres of the former Coryton Oil Refinery to provide over 3.7 million sq. ft of commercial development. You can view the submitted planning application on Thurrock Borough Council’s planning portal here.
Early preparation of 68 acres on the west site (Phase 1) has already been carried out. The first phase of construction is scheduled to begin in 2022, subject to planning consent, and the first occupiers will be up and running at Thames Enterprise Park in 2024.
