Basildon Town Centre - Highway and Regeneration Improvements

Closed 29 Mar 2019

Opened 25 Feb 2019


Essex County Council is pleased to announce a range of proposals to improve the highway and public realm within the Basildon Town Centre. Basildon Borough Council and Basildon Town Centre Management Company are already making a number of improvements to the Town Centre environment, which currently includes new paving and enhanced market within the area. Essex County Council was successful in acquiring Local Growth Funding from the South East Local Enterprise Partnership (SELEP) for highway related improvements, which will complement the works already being undertaken. 

In 2012 Basildon Borough Council adopted a Masterplan for the Town Centre, which sets out the Council’s vision for the area, and the highway improvement proposals are a key part of delivering this vision. The highway improvements represent £6.2m of investment into the Town Centre.

Basildon Borough Council has secured £9.7 million from the Housing Infrastructure Fund (HIF) to enable and support housing development within the town centre. This further complements the Basildon Town Centre Masterplan and the highway improvements to make a positive impact to the town centre environment. Key projects identified include the redevelopment of the former Post Office Block for mixed use development, increases in car park capacity and public realm improvements. Central to this is the re-landscaping of the routes connecting East Square to Great Oaks multi-storey car park. This in addition to the exciting changes already going on will help to make Basildon Town Centre a more vibrant and modern 21st Century town centre that will accommodate existing and future needs of residents and local businesses
