The Story So Far

In 2020, NewRiver (the owner of Grays Shopping Centre) held a Community Planning Weekend to kick start a programme of community engagement. We had to pause during the pandemic but came back in January 2022 with an update for the community, held at the centre.


We are consulting with the local community over the future of Grays Shopping Centre, and the wider town. 

Members of the project and design team were at Grays Shopping Centre Break Bar (located in the central area by Holland & Barrett and Exit Shoes) on Tuesday 14th June 2022, between 10:30am and 2:30pm.  

The project team will be receiving written feedback up until 30 June 2022.
