New Local Plan for Thurrock

Evidence to support the Local Plan

Local plans must be based on strong evidence.

We carry out detailed technical studies on the characteristics of each area, including:

  • social
  • economic
  • environmental

Our Issues and Options (Stage 2) consultation showed how studies have helped with the plan-making process so far. We have commissioned a range of further studies to help us to prepare the Local Plan.

You can download current technical studies below. Further studies will be added when completed.
