Two information drop-in events have been arranged to provide further details on the redevelopment of East Square in Basildon Town Centre.
The redevelopment provides an opportunity to reflect Basildon’s cultural heritage and the events will give residents and shoppers an opportunity to give their thoughts on how this could be reflected.
The events will be held at the Information Hub, located on the first floor of Eastgate Shopping Centre near Next.
The proposals include up to six new restaurants and a 10 screen cinema operated by Empire Cinemas, alongside enhancements to East Square and the surrounding area.
The proposals are part of the ambitious regeneration plans for the town centre and reflect the vision set out in the 2012 masterplan to create a vibrant day/night economy in the town centre.
At the first event in October last year, the council shared its initial thoughts for the future of East Square and received positive feedback on the proposals.
This follow-up event is an opportunity to be updated on the proposals submitted for planning earlier this year.
