CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) - Basildon Council service and information updates
Basildon Council is making decisions day by day in order to balance the need to maintain essential services and the need to support those who need our help the most, while at the same time following public health guidance for the protection of the public and staff against infection from coronavirus (COVID-19).
Basildon Council is encouraging residents to have their say on proposed changes to its council tax reduction scheme. The changes would affect households with apprentices and low income households living with a disabled person.
The Leader Basildon Council, Councillor Gavin Callaghan is calling on the head of Essex County Council to hold off deciding on any planning application about waste disposal at Archers Fields in Basildon Borough until the Government's imminent local governance reorganisation happens
Everyone within our borough has been affected by Covid-19 in some way - key workers providing vital services, volunteers who have supported vulnerable residents or those kept apart from family during lockdown.
Representatives from our disabled community and related organisations were given an update on the new progress of the Inclusive Basildon Borough Scheme over a Zoom call this week with Basildon Council and Perito Ltd, who are specialists in inclusive environments.
