East Tilbury is one of the seven conservation areas within Thurrock, which forms part of the Thames Gateway redevelopment zone. Stretching some 43 miles East of London on both sides of the River Thames and the Thames Estuary, the Thames Gateway has been described as a ‘corridor of opportunity’, an area of predominantly brown field land with the greatest development and commercial potential in the country. Currently the developments are predicted to include 14,000 homes and provide 20,000 jobs.
Whilst such vast plans are sure to alter the future of East Tilbury, as one of the conservation areas within the project the heart of the village must remain unchanged. Residents can expect to enjoy more employment opportunities, along with much improved transport links.
As workers move into the area to commence the building work, East Tilbury is sure to be a sought after location for rental accommodation. With a little foresight and good planning, creating a loft conversion in your East Tilbury property could allow you to cash in on the influx of workers, and longer term to increase the value of your estate.
In many instances, workers look to find accommodation from Monday to Friday, within a comfortable home without all the constraints of taking on a whole property. Creating an almost self contained are at the top of your home with perhaps an open plan living and sleeping space and bathroom could ensure you are ahead of the game.
In some properties it is even possible to create an entirely separate studio flat from a loft conversion, with separate access and perhaps even a roof terrace.
Whatever option you are considering, it makes financial sense. A call to Abbey Lofts is the first step to making it happen – call today on 0203 581 0354 for a free no obligation quotation.
