New Local Plan for Thurrock

Thurrock Local Plan

In February 2014, Council decided to start work on a new Local Plan.

The new Local Plan will set out the amount of development for Thurrock, and its distribution across the borough. It will be a comprehensive long-term planning framework.

There will be on-going public consultation and engagement on a wide range of planning issues as we produce the new Local Plan. We will also work with other organisations, such as neighbouring councils, as required by law.

Find out how you can get involved in the Local Plan.

The timetable for producing the new Local Plan and other planning policy documents is set out in our Local Development Scheme. We are reviewing the scheme approved in December 2015 and will published a new timetable later in 2017.
