Basildon's 70th birthday year is a great time to remember and celebrate what's been achieved since the new town was created. It is also a perfect time to think about what needs to be done next to make our borough even better.

'Our Place' is a public survey exercise that gives you the opportunity to tell us what things you celebrate about the place you live in.

Our borough is changing all the time and while we can't stop change, we can influence it.  We really are interested in what you have to say. The information you supply will be invaluable to us when we are drawing up plans for the future of the borough.

Over the coming months you can look forward to a series of events and appearances from the Our Place survey team.  Each of which will give you another opportunity to to tell us what things you celebrate about the place you live in.

We will be adding events and survey feedback to these pages over the coming weeks and months, so keep coming back to check.
