Purfleet-on-Thames forum was formed in 2002 by local residents whose aim and vision was to help the community have their say on local issues, encourage involvement and make Purfleet-on-Thames a better place to live and work.

We usually hold regular bi-monthly meeting where you can catch up on local news, listen to speakers, meet your local Councillors, discuss planning issues, connect with the local council, be involved in decision making, raise issues or concerns that might affect us all and most important – HAVE YOUR SAY!.

At the moment this is done by Zoom

Purfleet-on-Thames is changing, a billion pound regeneration scheme has started and recently the Government awarded the scheme £75m to kick start our regeneration.  Along with our recent name change, this will put us on the map.

During these challenging and changing times we want everyone to know the forum is here to reflect the views of ALL AREAS of PURFLEET-ON-THAMES.  We can only do this with input from yourselves.

We are at the dawn of a big change.  make sure you are informed during these exciting times.  Join us at our bi-monthly forum meetings details of our next meeting is on our dedicated website.
