Thurrock Council appoints developer for £800m Purfleet regeneration

At its heart of the new town centre will be a film, television and media village. It will be the largest facility of its kind in Europe, covering 600,000 square feet, and the first purpose-built studio complex in the UK in 50 years.

Employing around 2,000 people, the studios will host some of the largest production companies in the world, alongside post-production, multimedia and video gaming firms.

The town centre will also provide:

  • around 2,500 new homes
  • local shops
  • facilities, including a primary school, health centre, supermarket, upgraded rail station and leisure
  • open access to the River Thames

Works will begin on site in 2015/16, with the first phases of the development being completed in 2017/18.
