Basildon Town Centre Early Engagement Exercise
An early engagement exercise on the regeneration of Basildon town centre took place between 9 June and 7 July 2021 to seek the thoughts and opinions of residents about the future of the town centre.
The exercise received almost 3,000 responses and highlighted that residents want a secure, safe and green place to shop and spend their leisure time.
Almost two thirds of those who took part in the exercise said they would like to see more green and open space in the town centre and that they would visit in the evening if there were restaurants and entertainment on offer.
More than a third indicated that shops are what they like most about the town. Almost two thirds also said they would like to see more businesses open up and for the retail offer to be increased.
