Basildon Council (Fryerns and Craylands) (Phase North) Compulsory Purchase Order 2020

Basildon Borough Council has made the Basildon Borough Council (Fryerns and Craylands) (Phase North) Compulsory Purchase Order 2020 pursuant to section 226(1)(a) of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 and the Acquisition of Land Act 1981.

The Council's purpose in making the Compulsory Purchase Order (CPO), and seeking its confirmation, is to enable the Council to acquire compulsorily the land the subject of the Order, which is described in the Order, in order to facilitate the delivery of the next (third) phase of the comprehensive redevelopment and renewal of the Craylands Estate in Basildon.

The planning permission for the project as a whole approves 994 new dwellings, 534 original properties demolished, 429 retained with 298 (30%) of the new dwellings being affordable. The Scheme for the Order land is the third phase of the project, described as the "North phase", which relates to 8.49 hectares of the Estate. The aims of the Scheme, and the wider project, are founded in the priorities within the Community Action Plan for Craylands 2008-2011.

The Scheme will be delivered by the Council's development partner, Swan Housing Association, a registered social landlord with a good track record of delivery
