The future

A place that encourage businesses to grow and residents to succeed

Basildon’s emerging Local Plan for the next 15 years will set out a vision for borough which has a balance between development and growth, and quality of life for those that live and work in the Borough.

"By 2050 Basildon can be the real economic powerhouse to the east of London."

As growth shifts away from London, Basildon is in prime position to capitalise on growth opportunities.

Basildon will be a place where ambitious and innovative businesses, which develop and make modern products, will choose to base their business, and where people with technical expertise, creativity and entrepreneurial skills will want to work and live.
