Nick Bradley started this petition to Thurrock Council

As published in the cabinet agenda and report released on the 29th June, for discussion on the 7th July, the Thameside complex has been listed as a disposable asset.

The complex is home to a multitude of arts and cultural entities, including the theatre, Creative Blast performing arts studios, Thurrock museum, Thames delta radio and the current Grays library. The building is also host to tenants not mentioned in the report such as Transvol and Thurrock lifestyle solutions, who work throughout the Borough promoting equal rights for the disabled as well as the Café at the front of the building. Talking newspapers also has weekly meetings here, bringing the news to those unable to read a newspaper. By closing the building and potentially losing the Theatre, we also lose local groups such as Thurrock Courts players and TOPS on stage who are frequent users of the theatre and the local scouts who perform their annual gang show on the stage, as well as many, many other groups performers and dance schools both local and out of the Borough 

According to the report published, the Register Office is set to be relocated to the new Civic Office extension, the library is also up for discussion of relocation.

It would be a terrible shame to not only lose all of the arts and culture located in this building, but to lose a vital piece of local history. As we come out of the pandemic, people need things to bring them joy, need to be able to laugh and smile, and have things to look forward too and the Thameside Complex can bring this to the community.
