Leader opens regeneration discussion
Social housing, the Local Plan and the regeneration of the Laindon Centre were among the key topics discussed during the first-ever Meet the Leader event last month.
Andrew Baggott, leader of Basildon Council, hosted the Q&A event at Laindon Community Centre, as part of a series over the coming year to keep residents informed on how their money is being spent and what is being done to improve their area.
Baggott said: "It was great to meet residents who are so passionate about their communities at the first Meet the Leader event. It was a really positive meeting and I look forward to being quizzed at future sessions.
"We all want the same, which is building a better Basildon borough, and Meet the Leader is your chance to find out what we are doing to support your area."
The next event will take place at the Women’s Institute Hall in Samuel Road, Langdon Hills on Thursday.
