Tilbury has been selected by the government to receive its share of the £3.6billion Towns Fund. It is one of just 101 places to benefit from the fund and will potentially receive up to £25 million to help improve infrastructure, drive economic growth and increase job opportunities.
Tilbury is an energetic beacon on the Thames Estuary, where transport and logistics businesses sit alongside creative enterprises, connecting UK plc to the world.
It is also a town steeped in history, and our ambition is to build upon these unique assets, to make Tilbury a better, more attractive and prosperous place to live.
Community is key and people that live, learn and work in Tilbury are crucial in helping define what our town needs.
The launch of the Towns Fund has already seen many residents and businesses respond to the call to level up Tilbury, leveraging on the towns proud past and strong future and we are keen to hear more.
When international place makers laud what the Towns Fund initiative achieved, we want them to think of Tilbury – the fulcrum of the Estuary, Gateway to the Globe.
