Finding out what big issues affect the borough – and looking at options for addressing them – are important steps in producing the Local Plan.
We want you to share your views on the issues affecting Thurrock. Our first Local Plan 'issues and options' consultation (stage 1) took place in 2016 and covered broad policy themes.
We are now asking for your views again, this time on how Thurrock should develop and grow in the future, and where – in broad terms – new developments should be located to meet the needs of the borough.
Issues and Options (Stage 2) consultation
The consultation runs from Wednesday 12 December 2018 until 5pm, Friday 8 March 2019.
The quickest and easiest way to have your say is online, using the link below.
The form includes questions that can help you think about what's important for the Local Plan – you don't have to answer all the questions. You can also download all Stage 2 consultation document below.
Documents and forms are also available from our Civic Offices in New Road, Grays, and from local libraries around the borough.
In the coming days we will publish a short version of the form with simpler questions.
Comments and any questions you may have should be sent to our Growth and Strategy Team. If you will be sending these by post you should allow enough time for delivery as any comments we receive after 5pm on Friday 8 March 2019 will not be considered.
We will be running a series of 'Your place, your voice' events at venues across Thurrock, where you can meet the team, ask questions and have your say. Event dates, times and venues will be published here in January 2019.
All comments we receive – whether online, on printed forms, or face to face at events – will be used to help us prepare our full Local Plan for Thurrock. You will have a chance to comment again on this document when we have prepared a draft version.
Issues and Options (Stage 1)
Between February and April 2016 we consulted formally on our Issues and Options (Stage 1) document. Go to Local Plan Issues and Options (Stage 1) consultation to read the full document and comments received.
