The surrounding area includes the existing car park and shopping arcade to the north of Basildon Bus Station. It also includes Kelting House and the Asda supermarket, petrol station and car park.

The plans will provide up to 2,800 new homes, including build to rent, open market sale, student accommodation, housing for later living and co-living. 

Improvements to the retail space will be complimented by improved car parking along with public transport links (including a new bus station), better walkways and more green and outdoor spaces.
