We are on the side of business. We want to support businesses based in the borough and considering a move here to thrive. Our most recent Economic Development Strategy makes a number of commitments about how we intend to do this:
- We will work towards sustaining the Borough’s strong economy by engaging and supporting local businesses to enable them to grow and prosper.
- We will work to improve the employment prospects, education and skills of local people.
- We will work with our partners to promote sustainable economic growth by ensuring the provision of essential strategic infrastructure and connectivity in the Borough.
- We will further strengthen the "Basildon Brand" to attract inward investment and work to bring about an economy that can adapt to global trade and competition.
