“The beginning of a new and bolder approach by this government to support the Thames Estuary”.
James Brokenshire, March 2019

The government announced a multimillion pound package of commitments to drive forward growth for the Thames Estuary. Ambitious plans are in place to create 1.3 million new jobs and generate an extra £190 billion for the local economy.

• What does this mean for you and developments you are involved in or considering?
• What new opportunities will it unlock?

In addition, the Greater London Authority, Essex County Council and Kent County Council have made significant progress in realising the Thames Estuary Production Corridor, boosting the regionís cultural and creative sector.

• How is that driving growth in the Thames Estuary?
• What does the area need to support this transformation?

Discover how you can participate in a new era for the Thames Estuary at the Thames Estuary Growth Day.
