The Thames Estuary Production Corridor Partners has selected a design team to deliver its next phase, helping the scheme to become the UK’s largest and most significant area for creative production.

The appointment team is led by We Made That, and is made up of Hawkins Brown, PRD, Ramidus, Tom Fleming Creative Consultancy, Suzie Norton and Jan Miller.

The scheme is part of a shared vision with the Mayor of London, the South East LEP and partners in East London, South Essex and North Kent, and is also supported by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government.

Over the coming 12 months, the team will work together to identify new development sites for both creative and cultural production and help create action plans for the region’s growth in the fashion and screen-based industries, as well as develop feasibility studies on new flagship cultural infrastructure across the region.

The Thames Estuary Production Corridor is a programme seeking to build a world-class centre for creative production along the estuary and will be crucial in the post-pandemic recovery for the area.

The estuary has the potential to create 50,000 new jobs and generate £3.7 billion for the economy, with the creative industries being an integral part of the acceleration of the UK’s economic and social recovery, delivering the infrastructure crucial in delivering sustainable growth.
