Studio Egret West lodges 2,500-home Thurrock plans

Studio Egret West's proposals for the new Northlake development in Thurrock

Practice’s Northlake development would also feature new school, health centre and a lido

Studio Egret West has submitted proposals for a new 2,500-home neighbourhood in the Essex borough of Thurrock, north of the Lakeside Shopping Centre.

Drawn up for developer London Strategic Land, the scheme would be built out on 48 hectares of green belt that is part bounded by the M25 motorway and which also includes the Essex Arena raceway and the Lakeside Karting tracks.

SEW is seeking detailed consent for 342 homes, all but 24 of which would be flats, a lido, café, linear park and a 3km mountain bike trail for the site. The practice is also proposing to create a cycle tunnel beneath the A1306 to connect the shopping centre with the development, named “Northlake”.
