Port of Tilbury Begins Community Consultations on New Terminal

The Port of Tilbury, London’s major port, will begin its pre-planning community consultation on 6 March to seek local views on its proposals to build a new port terminal adjacent to the current port.

The proposed new port terminal, known as Tilbury2, will be built on a 152 acre site which was part of the former Tilbury Power Station and will include a new pontoon and deep water jetty.

Commenting on the pre-planning consultation events, Peter Ward, Commercial Director at the Port of Tilbury, said: “We are one of the largest ports in the South East and have an ambitious plan in place to continue to grow and to bring economic benefit and jobs to the area. Our customers are looking for expansion opportunities in Tilbury and Tilbury2 is a part of the port’s overall investment strategy.”

The community consultation events will also take place in March, the port operator, Forth Ports, said in its announcement.

This is the first stage of seeking views from the local communities and will be followed by statutory/formal consultation during the summer.
