We are pleased to share a roundup of our meetings, events and activities over the last month.

The Lower Thames Crossing team have been out and about throughout May meeting with local community members, businesses, elected representatives and local authorities.

During the course of the month our team were able to attend a number of events across London, Essex, Kent and Thurrock; we attended a LTC parliamentary Forum engaging with MP’s offices around jobs, skills and traffic. Our team was part of the panel at the PLA Port Infrastructure Group Meeting, we presented at the Leigh UTC Business Breakfast to an audience of around 30 business people. And we also shared speaking platform with SELEP at Kent Vision Live.

Our engagement with local authorities and councils continued with; workshops, skills, legacy and benefits meetings with Parliament, Essex Chambers, Essex County Council, Thurrock Council and Brentwood Council.

We enjoyed meeting with many business owners and leaders from across the south-east. This month we met engaged with the Maidstone Rotary Society, FSB National Policy Team, and the British Chambers of Commerce.

Our technical engagement this month included productive meetings with Thurrock Council, Essex Fire and Rescue, Health and Safety Executive, Environment Agency, Brentwood Enterprise Park, the Ebbsfleet Central Working Group, Network Rail, South Ockendon housing proposals, and a workshop with National Hrid/Cadent Gas/UKPN/SG.
