Our Corporate Plan, Believe in Basildon, sets out an ambitious vision for Basildon borough to have the best town centres in the South East, with thriving market towns and busy high streets complementing good jobs across a range of sectors.

It commits the council to improving the lives of all residents across our five towns and creating opportunity and prosperity for local people and businesses.

The plan promises to make the borough:

  • A place for everyone to call home
  • A place where everyone prospers
  • A place to be proud of.

It sets out outcomes that will be achieved to fulfil each of these promises.

The plan also identifies a number of areas for action where efforts will be focused:

  • Effective use of resources - making every penny count to create better lives for residents
  • Growth - stimulating the local economy and improving skills so that as many people as possible can take advantage of this growth
  • Digital - using new solutions to make service more effective and efficient and improving digital skills across our communities
  • Prevention - helping people as soon as possible, working with partners and investing resources not to see benefits tomorrow
  • Decision-making - being clear about the decision we make and why we are taking them.
