MULTI-MILLION pound plans to kickstart Basildon town centre’s regeneration are likely to be rubber-stamped next week.
Proposals to move the town’s market, now based in Market Square, into St Martin’s Square, as well as completely revamping the square, will be before Basildon Council’s development control committee on Tuesday.
Officers have recommended the plans are pushed through.
They will mean South Essex College can build a town centre campus on the old market site.
Regeneration bosses have hailed the move as the project which really kickstarts the £1billion transformation of the town.
Hans Wustefeld, manager of Basildon Town Centre Management, who runs the market, said: “This will cost more than £1million and the end result will be that Basildon will have one of the best markets in the UK.
