Competition: South Ockendon housing, Essex

South Ockendon, Essex
  • Comment

Thurrock Council is looking for an architect to design a £55 million pair of new housing schemes in South Ockendon, Essex

The chosen team will design and deliver housing on two sites within the historic settlement, which is just north of the Thames Estuary and close to the M25 motorway.

The project, planned to complete in 2020, will create a £45 million residential development on the site of the former Culver Centre for vulnerable children along with a £10 million development on an undeveloped corner site nearby.

Thurrock Council is midway through a five-year housebuilding programme which set out to deliver 1,000 new dwellings by 2020.

The latest project will deliver a number of new homes in South Ockendon on two sites both less than ten minutes walk from the train station. All new dwellings must be delivered to code for sustainable homes level four.

In its brief, the council says: ‘It is anticipated that this phased commission will span the development and submission of proposals to gain planning consent and other statutory approvals, the development of detailed design and submission of planning applications (in conjunction and in consultation with the council).’

The winning team will be expected to include both an architect and landscape architect. A principal design and employer’s agent for the project are also sought in separate contracts.

The deadline for applications is midday, 17 August.
