JLL to market 152 acre Tilbury site

A 152 acre site at Tilbury is to be developed following the appointment of JLL’s industrial and logistics team to market to market the land at Tilbury Power Station which closed two years ago.

The technical decommissioning of the power station has now been completed and the next phase, deconstruction and demolition, will begin early next year.

Richard Evans, director in JLL’s industrial and logistics team, said: “We are delighted to have been appointed as retained property advisor for the Tilbury site on behalf of RWE. The site offers a sizeable and unique development opportunity.”

The land owned by RWE totals 346 acres, 152 acres of which is being marketed by JLL in the coming weeks with a view to being sold. This land includes the site of Tilbury ‘A’ station and the existing Thames deep water jetty. This surplus land has the potential to be redeveloped for a mixture of uses including commercial and industrial, subject to the usual planning processes.
The land to be retained could be used for a future power station.
