Gardiners Lane South supplementary planning guidance

In 2003 Basildon Council adopted Supplementary Planning Guidance for the major development site at Gardiners Lane South, Basildon.

The 90-acre Gardiners Lane site close to the A127 is one of the last large development sites in the Basildon District and offers a tremendous opportunity to create a new quality mixed-use business location serving Basildon and South Essex.

The Supplementary Planning Guidance (SPG) document was prepared following a Collaborative Design Workshop held in July and October 2002 and provides an overall vision for development of the site and considers its impact on surrounding areas.

Following a public consultation period between March and May 2003, Basildon Council adopted the new SPG on 3 July 2003.

  • Improved public transport links along the Cranes Farm Road corridor
  • The site could support up to 8,000 jobs
