In May 2017 the Labour Party took back control of Basildon Council. After 15 years of the Conservatives protecting Billericay at the expense of the rest of the borough, it was time to level the playing ﬁeld.
Over the last 9 months your Labour Councillors have been working harder than any other party in the borough. We have managed the Council’s ﬁnances effectively, protected services, cleaned up our forgotten estates, introduced increased enforcement on gypsy and travellers occupying illegal encampments and developments, invested in new play equipment, protected women and girls from domestic violence, built council homes, agreed terms on the regeneration of THREE town centres and passed a local plan that means homes cannot be built without infrastructure.
We’ve achieved so much in such a short amount of time. But there is so much more to do.
With your support for Labour on May 3rd, we can ﬁnish what we started and make sure Basildon continues to be a brilliant place to live, work and raise a family.
