Basildon Council has installed new barriers at Radford Crescent Car Park in Billericay, in order to restrict out-of-hours access and reduce anti-social behaviour in the area. The new barriers will be in use from Saturday 17 August.
Basildon has been awarded a whopping £1,289,002 from Arts Council England as part of Creative People and Places 2019-2023. It is the first time this grant has been awarded to a borough within Essex and is an exciting win for the both residents and businesses within the town.
Do you think Basildon Council should spend more, less or the same on maintaining parks and open spaces? Does strengthening the local economy matter more or less to you than making people happier, healthier, independent and active? These are some of the questions that Basildon Council is asking residents and businesses before it sets its budget for 2020/21.
