Good Commercial and Industrial Opportunities
Basildon has a significant commercial and industrial presence in the southeast. As such, the local economy is responsible for many jobs, bringing employees who’ll need new homes in the area.
Some popular sectors in the area are the automotive, defence, innovation, aerospace and R&D industries.
Basildon is home to numerous companies, including:
- New Holland Agriculture
- DST Financial Services/SS&C
In addition, London Gateway Port, south of Basildon, provides local employment opportunities. The area falls within the Thames Freeport Zone, which has the potential to become a vast commercial area that will serve the local economy and boost the Basildon property market.
Basildon’s town centre is amid the Basildon Masterplan, a scheme which intends to make the area a better place to live and – for landlords – invest in property.
The plan is responsible for a new leisure centre and college campus. Future regenerative efforts include building a new area, developing city living properties, and boosting the residential sector in the town centre.
Basildon benefits from being close to London and enjoying the economic perks such proximity provides.
The town connects to London and the South East by road and rail. Basildon is close to the M25 London Orbital Motorway and well-located to reach other notable cities in Essex like Southend-on-Sea and Chelmsford.
Commuters can reach London within 40 minutes via trains from Basildon, Laindon and Pitsea. Southend Airport is only 11 miles away.
