The first phase will see the construction of 61 family homes close to the train station in Purfleet, Essex.  These new homes are designed to create a gateway to the wider masterplan, connecting existing Purfleet with the new development.

The project is being delivered by Purfleet Centre Regeneration Limited (PCRL), which is a joint venture of Swan Housing Association and Urban Catalyst.

Construction work on phase one is due to start in spring/summer 2020.

The wider plan includes new shopping facilities, community amenities including a health centre, improved railways and transport facilities, and more housing.

Outline planning permission for the £1bn masterplan was granted by Thurrock Council in April 2019.
