Places and Spaces

The Estuary’s landscape is a constant source of inspiration and pride.

It weaves around ancient settlements, fishing harbours, resort towns, industrial hubs and some of the fastest growing districts in the country.

With its mix of vibrant rural and urban spaces, heritage buildings, emerging communities, and world-class production facilities, it is becoming one of the most attractive locations for creative people and their businesses to thrive in.

As we build a new shared identity for the region, we are committed to making creative and cultural production synonymous with the Thames Estuary’s beguiling landscape.

Over the past ten years, our region has been at the forefront of delivering transformational cultural infrastructure. Ambition and vision helped to bring Turner Contemporary in Margate and High House Production Park in Thurrock to fruition, acting as catalysts for creative change and growth.

The region has ample space for cultural production; through the creative use of existing assets and as part of planned new developments, we can unlock sustainable spaces for creative industries to grow and develop relevant business models to meet local and international demand.

The landscape of the Estuary gives us the ingredients for transformational change.
