The top priority for Thurrock will be to improve the education and skills of local people, and encourage and promote job creation and economic prosperity.
2012 marks a significant milestone in the transformation of Thurrock and Thurrock Council. The integration of the Development Corporation into the council in April signals a new confidence in the organisation. Our challenge is to deliver the regeneration agenda whilst improving the life chances of local people through enhancing their education, health and well-being. A transformation programme within the council is set to modernise the way we operate and deliver significant savings.
With over £5bn being invested in one of the largest regeneration programmes in the country, Thurrock really is the place to be right now and we recognise this is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to ensure local people benefit from the jobs and growth that will emerge over the next decade.
We want the next ten years to be remembered as being a decade of delivery transforming the landscape of the borough and improving people's health and well-being in ways that previously would not have been possible. We are very clear - if our young people are not able to access the professional and managerial jobs and opportunities arising from the regeneration programme then we will have failed.
