YOU may not pay much attention to our politics or planning pages but references to the land where Arena Essex sits has been made for many years at Thurrock Council meetings.
From Purfleet through Lakeside and up to the land where Arena Essex resides there are plans for housing. The transformation may well see a whole new town centre.
It is all part of the plan to build up to 32,000 homes in Thurrock.
The plan called BeyondLakeside describes itself as follows.
“London Strategic Land. is planning a vibrant new community to the north of Lakeside Shopping Centre. The plans for our land which is to the north of Lakeside include new sports and community facilities, a new primary school, and open space, as part of a mixed use development which will start the transformation of Lakeside from a Shopping Centre into a Town Centre.
Presented here is information and work on our plans which we would like your feedback and comments on.
“While initial discussions with Thurrock Council and a number of local organisations have taken place and continue to do so, a planning application has not been submitted. This process is about engaging with and listening to the local community before a planning application is submitted”.
