Support our proposals for Basildon's Market Square

Following consultation with the community on the proposals for Market Square, a planning application to redevelop the site has now been submitted to Basildon Council. If you would like to show your support for the proposals to transform this part of Basildon Town Centre, please fill in the form below, which will send a planning representation directly to Basildon Council.

Dear Basildon Council,
I am writing in support of the planning application [REF: 20/00955/FULL] to redevelop Market Square, Basildon for the following reasons:

It will help to deliver much needed high-quality homes for Basildon including affordable housing for local residents.

It will deliver a new type of housing provision attractive to young people and downsizers, in close proximity to amenities and transport links.

It will help to boost the local economy in Basildon by delivering new shops, homes, restaurants and workspace in the Town Centre, which will also help to increase essential footfall.

There is provision for much-needed infrastructure and amenities, such as a health centre, which is a benefit for South Essex in the aftermath of COVID-19.

The development has been designed sensitively and in line with the ambitions of the Council's Town Centre Masterplan.

The proposals will create a welcoming and vibrant environment in the Town Centre, helping to improve safety and boosting the evening economy.

Sustainable design is at the forefront of the proposals, with a 'fabric first’ approach and numerous measures proposed to enhance energy efficiency on the site.
