History of Thurrock

Thurrock Borough is a large and diverse region with twenty electoral wards located along the north bank of the Thames just over 30 minutes’ drive away from central London, under its local authority of Thurrock Council.

At one time, Thurrock consisted of several parishes with their own churches and communities grouped together under ‘Hundreds’ for administrative purposes. It’s likely that its name stemmed from the Saxon term for boat’s bottom (or perhaps it refers to something even dirtier!).

Size and diversity will allow it to maintain economic expansion. This growth will be fuelled by new housing and business expansion primarily in Purfleet, Lakeside/West Thurrock and Grays urban areas; Tilbury docklands redevelopment supporting port activities will further boost this economic expansion; additionally new schools, community facilities and improved transport links will contribute towards this process – supported by Core Strategic Spatial Policies of Thurrock Council.

Flooding in Thurrock

THURROCK has experienced flooding from river and tidal floods in the past. While current flood defences reduce this risk, properties not in river/coastal flood plains could still be vulnerable to flash flooding during heavy rain if water levels exceed capacity.

Even after extensive efforts at flood prevention have been undertaken by the Borough, floods still present a risk. Mardyke Valley was particularly hard hit this year and homes in Stanford-le-Hope were also inundated due to an excess of rainfall that overwhelmed water course systems and sluice gates. According to the Environment Agency this was caused by overly granular precipitation falling directly onto soil surface from above ground water tables and into ground reservoirs.

One family who’s flat was flooded in Chadwell St Mary is calling upon Thurrock Council for help to find alternative accommodation. Toni Byers was relocated to a hotel but is in desperate need of somewhere permanent to reside. YT spoke with Toni about what happened and how she has coped.

The Lakeside Shopping Centre

Lakeside Shopping Centre has undergone massive external investment, becoming more than merely a shopping paradise; it has also transformed into an engaging social destination through the leisure complex ‘The Quay’. Offering something for every age and taste, Lakeside provides fun from sun up until sun down!

At this location is also home to the first Nickelodeon Entertainment Centre in the UK, where visitors can play favourite games and meet characters such as SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer and Paw Patrol from your favourite shows.

Lionheart Capital plans to transform it into an “urban center” by adding apartments, offices and hotels.

Lakeside Shopping Centre is just minutes away from Chafford Hundred station, served by c2c trains running to London Fenchurch Street through Upminster and West Ham as well as East towards Southend Central and Basildon.
