Coming Soon

A new housing development in Derry Avenue, South Ockenden especially designed for residents aged over 60 (or 55 with a disability).


Three-quarters of the 25 HAPPI (Housing our Ageing Population: Panel for Innovation) homes are initially available to eligible people living in the area. 


If you or a family member might be interested, come along to our open day on Thursday, 14 January between 10am and 3pm.   


More information will be available in the new year.



Getting started

The demand for council housing in Thurrock far outstrips the number of properties we have available. By law, we must give priority housing to those with the greatest need.


Our online questionnaire can help you find somewhere to live. It takes you through a series of questions and gives advice on both housing and employment.
