Grays Town Centre
Client: Thurrock Council
Partners: Steer, Landolt + Brown
We prepared an urban design strategy for the entire town centre including design guidance, incorporating development principles for key sites, public realm, and an enhanced movement and transport network. The work aims at creating a high-quality arrival point and establishing the measures needed to place a proposed pedestrian underpass at the heart of a new integrated transport hub for bus, rail, taxis, pedestrians and cyclists. The plan aims at reintegrating the town centre with the surrounding residential neighbourhoods and the riverfront, and supporting a more balanced mix of land uses, including re-tooling the town centre as an appropriate place for a new residential population.
