Project Information
Project description:

The Purfleet Centre Regeneration Project will deliver a sustainable mixed-use town centre, high quality homes and business space in a scheme which integrates with the existing community and makes best use of local assets including a River Thames waterfront and an existing railway station.

Approximately 3,000 new homes will be built in a variety of dwelling types along with a new Neighbourhood Area with a community hub centre, a health centre, school and shopping facilities. High quality mixed-use and small business development will be encouraged at Botany Way and west of the railway station. Public access to and along the riverfront will be improved and new urban open spaces will be provided as part of the Green Grid network and there will be a new road link connecting London Road with the Purfleet by-pass to improve access and traffic flow. An outline planning application has been submitted for Purfleet Centre.

The selected partner will be expected to give financial support to the Council toward the costs of land acquisition, remediation and infrastructure provision in order to facilitate the delivery of the project. 

Deadline for requests to participate is on 24 July 2012.
