Laindon Community Centre - Works timeline and planned reopening
Basildon Council is now fully committed to reopening Laindon Community Centre as soon as works to ensure the centre is fit for purpose have been completed.
Basildon Council took over the running of Laindon Community Centre in November 2020 after the keys were handed to the council by the Laindon Community Association.
Following a thorough buildings inspection it was discovered the centre was no longer fit for purpose. Works are currently underway to bring the building back into use and ensure it is fit for purpose and meets the needs of the community.
This is provisional timeline and further progress updates will be published here as time goes on.
