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.
