The Thames Estuary is one of the most dynamic regions of the UK with more than 30 large scale development projects planned including infrastructure schemes, free ports, residential & mixed-use developments and more.

Join our fantastic panel of high-level speakers for an in depth look into upcoming projects, opportunities for collaboration and challenges to be overcome as well as a look ahead to the annual conference later in the year.

Speakers for this event include:

  • Thames Estuary Growth Board – as head of the Thames Estuary Growth Board, Kate is one of the driving forces behind ‘The Green Blue’, a project that includes 30 individuals with the potential to create 1.5 million jobs and add £115 billion to the UK economy. The plan will drive sustainable growth, improve transport and connectivity and overhaul the region’s infrastructure.
  • City of London Corporation – are planning to relocate the Smithfield, Billingsgate and New Spitalfields markets to a 42 acre site formerly occupied by the Barking Reach power station, including harnessing solar power to help run them. The corporation bought the land for £100 million in 2018 and the move will free up a large amount of land for thousands of much needed inner London homes. Paul will discuss this momentous project, the exciting opportunities being created by the redevelopment and the plans for the newly vacated land.
  • The Port of Tilbury – The Port of Tilbury is a key driver for economic growth in the South East and strategically important in the realisation of the development goals along the Thames Estuary. With a plethora of property projects being brought forward in 2021, including a new Port terminal on the site of the old Tilbury power station. Carole joins the panel to discuss the wider vision for the organisation’s role in the 2050 vision.
