The Thames Estuary Production Corridor Partners has selected a team to design and deliver the next phase of their ambitious project to ensure the estuary becomes the UK’s largest and most significant concentration of creative production. The appointed team is led by We Made That and comprises Hawkins\Brown, PRD, Ramidus, Tom Fleming Creative Consultancy, Suzie Norton and Jan Miller. It is the shared vision of the Mayor of London, the South East LEP and partners in East London, South Essex and North Kent, and is supported by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government.
Over the next twelve months, the project team will work with Partners to identify new development sites for creative and cultural production, formulate action plans for the region’s high growth fashion and screen-based industries and develop feasibility studies for new flagship cultural infrastructure across the region.
Thames Estuary Production Corridor is a bold programme to build a world-class centre for creative production along the Estuary. It is the shared vision of the Mayor of London, the South East LEP and partners in East London, South Essex and North Kent, and is a unique example of an active cross-boundary partnership and strategic collaboration.
The Thames Estuary Production Corridor will play a crucial role in London and the South East’s recovery, economically and socially, after COVID-19, potentially creating 50,000 jobs and generating £3.7bn for the UK economy. Cultural and creative industries will be integral to accelerating the UK’s economic and social recovery and the Thames Estuary Production Corridor will help create thousands of jobs, building world-class cultural infrastructure and developing local skills opportunities that will be crucial to deliver sustainable growth.
